Default Scored powder and primers today.

4# jug of Winchester 244 and 500 CCI small rifle magnum.

Perfect for 9,40 or 38spl. Or I have .357 powders and can load some magnum loads for my Ruger GP-100.

powder coated ok for 38+P loads/357 mag? Not that I plan on shooting a lot of .357 mag, but want to become comfortable before I work up a defense load for bears. Hence the coated lead flat nose, or SWC 158s.

I was just at my partner's brother's place, and as we were on his deck, the neighborhood black bear wandered by looking for his evening berries. This morning were a hundred or so quail, and somewhere in the trees were some gobblers. Didn't see the deer before we left. The elk were around somewhere. Maybe the neighbor's pasture, drinking from the cow's water troughs.

When the fire danger drops this fall, his "out back" range will open up. All the BLM land is off limits to any shooting now. WAY too dry.

Over near Cle Elum, in Eastern Washington.

4# of 244 was $115 and the primers were $30 for 500. I got his last primers. Plus tax. If I had cash, he knocks off 3% because of no card fees. I will try and bring checkbook next time. He might do that too.

Prices are twice pre-pandemic prices.

I've been using coated lead with hot Unique 38+P loads and also done some mid-range 357's with 2400... no signs of leading or any other issues.

That powder price seems pretty reasonable.

We all know why prices are going up so it shouldnít be any surprise. Weíre probably going to see more of this too. Itís nothing new, itís been happening since the beginning of time. I go back to my childhood when a new Lincoln was $4000, Volkswagen Beetle $1295, my parents custom built house $13,000 and a family of 4 could buy groceries for $6-8 a week. I started a business when I was in college in the 60ís and made $14,000 a year, now over $100,000 in todayís dollars. Get used to it because itís not going away.
