      You need to find a new lgs. Midway has it in stock for $27.99/lbs or $23.72/8 lbs.

      Did the government ever succeed in getting the manufacturers to add tagants to gunpowder? That was their goal back in the Clinton days, but the manufacturers fought it off at the time.

      Yeah. And they also made
      this new magic wand that makes monkeys fly out of a bullfrogs ass……

      Lets avoid paying 2019 prices until that year is under way, shall we?
      LOL!

      I understand the OP’s aggravation wholeheartedly, the closest store to me has already started bumping their prices to post bad choice presidency levels.
      $39.99 for a brick of primers, $39.99 for a pound of IMR4064 and $42.99 for a 100 bullet box of Sierra 168g BTHPM bullets.
      I promptly drove 45 minutes to the next store and bought four assorted bricks of primers for $111.27 tax included, only saved myself $59.88.

      Oh, and I rode with my son since he was going to one of the stores for a case of 9mm ammo so I save on gas also, gotta love it when a plan comes together.

      Online store like powder valley and third generation are holding steady on their prices. I doubt they will go up because of the election,

      The IMR 4895 I picked up a couple of months back was $32 and change. An I thought that was a bit steep. This place didn’t have the prices on primers and I was afraid to ask.

      After reading this I went out to the local gun shop and paid $27 each for four more pounds of IMR-4895. Now that the election selected the more desirable to me presidential personality, what am I going to do with all of this powder I have been hoarding over the last few months? Should I just reload and shoot more? Or invite all the grandchildren over more often to shoot with me? Or purchase some rifles and pistols that have lot bigger cartridge cases? Or just put it all in my will to go to the shooting grandchildren?

      All of the above.

      Or put one grandchilds name on each can. Maybe start putting together packages of rifle, powder, mold etc.
      Dunno, every family is different.

      But of all the powders I have tried that one is about my second favorite.

      Just hold on to it.
      In four to eight years you may find yourself in the same situation again.

      It will keep a long time if stored correctly.

      Unless you have WC820, it doesn’t store well and you should send it to me for proper disposal.
