Surplus powder is not the deal it once was. I used a lot of it but now days, the price difference isn't enough to tempt me.
I don't know how cheap surplus powder used to be because I have only been using it for a few months. I don't understand what you mean by "the price difference isn't enough to tempt me" because there isn't anything different you have to do with surplus powder than regular powder. To buy 8 pounds of H-335 from Powder Valley it cost $128 and 8 pounds of WC-844 ( the H-335 equivalent ) from Pat's is $85. I would gladly buy the surplus powder and save $43 on each 8 pound bottle.
