Midway has Bullseye Powder in stock

Post by Snobal on 11/25/2015, 2:47 pm

Just noticed that Midway has Bullseye Powder in stock.  

I was down to my last container, so I ordered some.  It is supposed to ship on Dec 5.

Between torrential rains and high winds yesterday the sun poked through the clouds and created a rainbow. I guess I was standing right on the end of it when I walked into a local gun store. Sitting on the floor (to big for a shelf) was a 8lb jug of Bullseye. The adoption process went quickly and the powder found a new home. Powder seems to be showing up. Info for the locals: S&M had several hundred pounds show up Friday and they have a lot of powders for pistols.

Not the powerball...but close..ok,not even close.But a nice surprise.

Nice score. I'm down to my last maybe quarter-pound, so it's gonna go on reserve for purposes that really need it. I only started reloading relatively recently, so my stocks are thin.

I checked out a new-to-me shop yesterday, and was able to grab a pound of Universal. They had a four-pound jug of IMR 700X, but I haven't gotten a chance to try it, so I chickened out on dropping a hundred bucks on it. Which I'm semi-regretting already, the loads for it look lovely.

What I am gonna do is knuckle up and make an order from Grafs or Powder Valley. Some n310, n320, and IMR (PV has it, but they don't have the n320), plus a couple thousand primers. I know a couple guys that might split the hazmat a little, but if not, no big deal.

I have had 'mixed' results with 700X. A friend found several pounds of it when hardly anything else was available so we (well me, I reload, he shoots and finds components) have attempted to use it for quite a few calibers. The first thing that I learned was that my Redding 10X measure absolutely hates it, while there are a few powders that don't measure easily this one really binds everything up. I was unable to come up with a load that functioned well for 9mm/147 gr bullets, they were OK in my old S&Ws and the Berretta but not able to keep under maximum and work with a new XDm or Sig 320C (no, they are not bullseye guns). It works OK for my .45 loads but from what I read here you can launch greased rocks and have a decent shortline load so .....
I was glad to have it when there was nothing else but would choose almost anything else for 'general' handgun loading.

BE has been showing up every now and then at Scheels. I picked up a pound last Thursday. I am interested to try n310, but I have no idea where I will be able to find that. There are a couple gun shows coming up so I guess I will keep my fingers crossed....

I use 700x for my long line loads.  4.4 grains with a zero 185 jhp.  Jerry Keefer also uses it.  I like it a lot.  Very accurate and very very clean.
