    Thanks for posting. Does WESTERN POWDERS have a booth there? I've been in touch with Sherri (from Western) in regard to the apparent price gouging for Blackhorn 209 in Canada. She had no idea that some stores are charging $79-$89/lb. She told me that she thought those prices were simply outrageous but they couldn't do much after the product had been sold to the distributor. If you could drop a word about the excessive pricing up here and perhaps get other distributors making purchases.......? She says an order has to be at least a few thousand pounds to be able to ship up here so I would assume the Canadian distributor pays around $10US/lb and after taxes, hazmat, and whatever else, that leaves a lot of 'gravy' for the numerous middlemen. There is no reason that Blackhorn should not be priced inline with Triple7.......unless of course collusion between Hodgdon and the Blackhorn distributors!
    In these times of Liberal ineptitude, I regret that I have but one vote.

    It's not a good idea to get attached to new Winchester powders - they have a terrible track record of dropping them after a few years.
