Online source for components

Fwiw, if anyone's not familiar with them, http://store.thirdgenerationshootingsupply.com is a pretty good source for powder & primers. Not 'phenomenal' pricing or anything, but awfully good. Titegroup is just $15.69 a pound - you have a $27.50 hazmat fee as with any online reloading-component order, but if you're willing to buy in quantity a little, it works out pretty well.

Those there are about what we pay over the counter, with the dollar-conversion involved. Titegroup at $39 CD is roughly $29 US; iirc, the last I saw was $24.99 (plus sales tax) here.

At third generation, even including the hazmat & shipping, 22lbs of titegroup came to $477.83, or $21.72 a pound. So not phenomenal, but certainly better than the $26.88 if bought locally.

out of stock of everything that amounts to a hoot, or badly overpriced.

Titegroup isn't 'WAF'..? It's cleaner than Unique or Bulleye either one; and yes, I've used all three. And yes, in this century.

And $21.72 delivered is 'grossly overpriced'..?

You're a moron. This isn't 1977 and there are more good powders than just bullseye nowadays. The ONLY concern with Titegroup is that (like Bullseye) it uses so little powder you have to be mindful of double-charges, which you're supposed to be no matter what powder you're using.

A 125-grain lead 9mm bullet runs 3.8 grains of titegroup in my loads. that means 1,842 rounds per pound. That's $11.79 per thousand rounds. Overpriced indeed.

Oop; my bad on the math. (No, gunchild, not "on the meth"). I admit, I was sloppy when doing the initial 'per pound' calcs.

It isn't 22lbs of powder, it's 28. Twenty one-pounders and two four-pounders. So that actually makes it $17.06 per pound, including shipping and hazmat; nearly 40% less than over-the-counter prices locally.

Or put another way, just $9.26 per thousand rounds of 9mm loaded. Again, "grossly overpriced" indeed.

Actually doing stuff. It trumps simply wishing stuff pretty much every time...
