Take a look at powdervalleyinc.com

They seem to have about the best price that I have seen on many brands of powder.

Just remember you order powder,primers.ammo on line the is a $20.00 hazard fee above the reg.shipping.Unless you order a whole lot it's not worth it.I read somewhere you order a case of primers 10.000 and order another one you have to pay the $20 again.You want the powder at a reasonable price look around the gunshows.Been paying a little over $14.00 at our shows.

You pay the $20 Hazmat fee on every package that gets shipped to you. Powders and Primers can't be shipped together.

I recommend going to a decent gunshow. The last one I went to, I picked up Winchester 231 for $16/1lb tax incl., Hodgson Tightgroup for $16/1lb tax incl., Winchester small pistol primers for $12/1000 + tax and Winchester large pistol primers $13/1000 plus tax.

Rather than 231, I went to the AA-2 that www.gibrass.com has at about half the price. If you can swing a six jug mixed case, he eats the HAZMAT, you have several years supply of powder, and you are only out what you would spend for powder in a year's time buying one pound cans.

Hopefully, you noticed that the AA#2 knockoff is in a 6#, not 8# jug??

The best powder deals anymore are at gun shows.

Where do you live?

If you are in the SF Bay area I could direct you to USI in Concord. Club members get great prices--I gave up on gun shows, online, etc. $25 annual membership pays back quickly.
