We use a LOT of varget in MANY of our hunting chamberings.
I was in a Small Gun shop in Omaha, there very limited supply of powder but.
They had some Varget which is about 55% higher than what I paid in 2020 but, even at $51 a pound, I bought all they had. Boohoo Dang, but now we have some more...
No primers of any kind with in 1400 miles.

Congratulations on finding Varget. That's one I haven't seen in a while.

I think that when this finally settles out the "new normal" prices will be close to this. 

The local shop here has primers off and on. The last time I was there they had Federal Match large pistol primers for $11.00 per 100 with a 5 box limit. I hope that's not the new normal. I don't need them that bad. To their credit, a while back they had standard small rifle primers for $6.19 per 100 with the same limit.

I sure could use some Rio shotshell primers.
I could make 209a primers work IF I could find them. I have been getting new primed hulls for $.19 each, that's only $.08 more and I get a new hull, and I can get them.

I have only seen shotgun primers at one shop in town. they were Winchester 209's. This isn't big shotgun country. Sportsmans warehouse has had wads and shot through this whole fiasco. Rifle and pistol components, not so much.

Wads and shot here to but it's lead. Never anything for waterfowl, non tox.

I didn't think to look for non toxic shot but all I remember seeing is lead.

By the way D,

I still have a box of shotgun loading stuff that Grumpy2 sent for you. 

Sometimes Ron comes through Gillette on his summer vacation. If he does that would get it closer.

Cool
OR you could have me take you out shooting P dogs at one of my super secret dog town.
OR, You could take us to one of yours and we could exchange packages.

Either one of those ideas would be a lot better.
