    I think I paid $12.00 for 1 lbs.
    So maybe a little high.
    Check Powder Valley and see what there price is.

    FINDING TiteGroup is next to impossible, paying less than $15/lb is bordering on the things fantasies are based on.

    BUY SOME!

    In Feb 2010 I paid $19 for a single pound of 12G powder at a semi famous gyppo LGS. I would buy 1-2 myself if it were me.

    OK, what is a good price for 1000 small pistol primers?

    Back before the Great Drought, I got TiteGroup for about $17 a pound at a local Sportsman's Warehouse. Haven't seen any there for 15 months.

    I get my primers in bulk at the big Phoenix gun shows; Winchester run about $28/1000, a little cheaper if you get the 5000 case.

    The drought is nowhere near over. I have a good stock of most of what I need but.......
    If I really needed either primers or powder, my personal threshold would go to $30-35 per pound of powder, or thousand primers. Some may laugh at that, but considering availability (and I don't see it getting better yet), powder or primers of the desired flavor in hand, beats the hell out of none. Most of my stock didn't approach half that price.

    As I said, I have enough, but TiteGroup in particular, has not shown up anywhere for a long time. I use it in most of my pistol rounds, and have had to supplement with 231 or Zip, which work fine also. I don't want to run completely out of anything I use.

    When what you want, shows up, you need to decide (usually right then) if you can do without it or not, you may (probably) won't get another chance anytime soon.

    I suppose I could do that. I'll see what they have when I go back next week. Hazmat fees are gonna kill you though.

    It's funny, I've been reloading for all my rifles for better than ten years but I only had a single stage press. It was just too time consuming to mess with pistol rounds. Now that i have a progressive press I'm trying to go slowly and not dump a TON of money into building up my stash.

    It just seems to me though that everything is hard to come by these days and when you find it you should buy a bunch of it. Too bad my bank account can't afford that type of thing every day.

    I already spent a ton of money this year with a hunting trip to MO and getting my progressive press and set up. I've also got a ton of spring farm projects looming so I'm trying to not spend too much and just get what I need right now.

    I was thinking about this thread this morning, and my 'pinch point' for the price of powder. Even with the increased cost of components, I'm still loading .45 ACP for 15.1 cents a round; bullets remain the costliest component. Not that I'd like it to happen, but I could pay $35 per pound of powder and only increase my cost per round by a half a penny.

    Us old folks feel the "sticker shock" more than the younger crowd. My first primers were $0.75 per 100, cast-sized bullets were $1.00 per hundred and powder was $3.00 to $4.00 per lb.

    About 7 years ago, I switched from Winchester powders to Hodgdon powders for my skeet shooting. I purchased 2, 8 lb caddies each of Clays, International Clays and Universal clays. Believe it or not, it is less expensive to buy 12 & 20 Gauge target loads than it is to reload. Now, I have a quite a few of those 8lb caddies around. Although Clays and Universal clays are not very "popular" for handgun reloading, I have discovered that they do very well in 9mm, .45ACP and .40 S&W.

    Of course a lb of "bullseye" still goes a long way in .38 specials 148 gr LSWC, at 2.7gs per load.

    I don't know the shelf life of powder. But it seems to me that if it stays sealed it should last a lifetime.
