I'd been shopping for powder was wasn't able to find any that I needed locally. I live in a fairly small town so not a lot of places to shop here. As it turned out there was a gun show at our convention center. I hadn't been to a gunshow in years though I used to attend them regularly when I lived up in Washington State. Only one vendor had powder and he was asking $60 per pound. Told him I wasn't willing to pay that for powder and the jerk tried telling me that it was selling for that price everywhere. Came really close to calling BS to him right in front of the crowd gathered at his table. He also had primers and was asking $120 per thousand. Noticed that he was selling a couple Mosin Nagants One was an M91/30 which he was asking $599.95 for the other was am M44 he was asking $699.95 for. There was nothing remarkable about either Mosin these were the same Mosins selling for around $150.00 at Big 5 Sporting goods not too long ago. I looked around a little more but didn't end up buying any thing at the gun show. Went home and ordered my powder online. Same powder the guy at gun show was asking $60.00 per pound I bought for $30 per pound online. I did notice that many of the online retailers were sold out of popular powders. I suspect that the gunshow price gougers are buying up the retail supplies.
