It’s funny I checked Natchez at 5am and they had no primers. Anyway, they still have some now. Hodge had varget earlier this morning alsoCCI Standard Primers come in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate a number of popular calibers. These primers come in a 1,000-piece box and are widely recognized as some of the most clean-burning primers on the market.www.natchezss.com
450s still in stock
It seems to me that Berger has lately focused on hunting rounds like their 156 Elite Hunter for the .264 caliber's. I'll be that as hunting season winds down we'll see a lot more of those 140 hybrids.So, not powder but loaded ammo. I back ordered 5 cases Berger 6.5 CM, 140 gr Hybrid Target ammo with Creedmoor Sports.....Nov of 2020!!
I was all prepared to joke with their CS manager this coming Nov about hitting the two year mark but son of a gun....they shipped this past week (oh yeah, surprise CC hit but glad to get this stuff). 18 months.
Now I love Creedmoor Sports. Great outfit, great CS. But they simply have gotten pretty much zero of this ammo over the past couple of years from Berger. Also, rather impossible to find .264 140 gr HT bullets.
Not sure what Berger is making these days, but .264 140 HT doesn't seem to be at the top of the list. I asked them about this last Feb and they said that the 140 HT bullets were not even yet on their build list and they were still finishing off hunting bullets!! Now, they did share with me a fact that has impacted their production....it has to do with a c urrent capacity expansion. But after telling me, they went "ooops" and came back to me and asked me not to share this info which of course I will respect. But, hopefully Berger will become more available over the next year.
I should prob open another BO with CS now...but I dont know if I will live long enough to receive! haha
Well, yeah. But this convo was in late Feb. what hunting season are they still loading for was kind of my point.It seems to me that Berger has lately focused on hunting rounds like their 156 Elite Hunter for the .264 caliber's. I'll be that as hunting season winds down we'll see a lot more of those 140 hybrids.
Without clogging this great thread up with banter, if you can find out their wholesale cost on that 8# I would greatly appreciate it.Silverdale Washington Sportsman’s has 8# Varget. $366.99. Was one left after I bought one. Get it before I do tomorrow. Seems steep but really only 10% higher than Hodgdon site. Vets discount knocks 5% off
So they sold out and then put a little more out and you nabbed it? Is that common with these online dealers? I’ve missed every single Retumbo sighting and is frustrating as hell.Persistence pays off - after 2 years of trying to get an RL33 8# I played the PV refresh, try again rodeo for 45 minutes and it worked.
still there, I just got 3 lbsVarget one pounders @ hodgdon

To be honest at 50 bucks a pound plus shipping hazmat and tax, to much for my blood! i would like to have some extra but not planning on doing many matches with the cost of EVERYTHING esp diesel! money will be spent on things that are more of an asset than a liability!
