    I made my purchase of 16 pounds of powder for my AR several weeks ago. It hasn't got here yet so I called wideners today. They told me my order will probably be shipped next week. That they ship 500 pounds of powder a day and it is just going to take that long for it to be my turn. 500 pounds a day and a month wait! WOW

    They are charging me $30 shipping plus hasmat and it is taking a month.:wow:

    Jack is probably buying it in 50 gallon drums.:crying:
    On the up side I only have to get a few thousand 223 bullets and I will be set until next year.

    It's election year and, regardless of what presidential candidate is favored in the polls, people get a little cookie and start stock piling reloading components out of "fear". It happens every four years (like clockwork). Don't worry... The madness will pass!
