We have an auction store for gun related stuff. I see Retumbo currently at $405 for 2 lbs. sigh, maybe an asteroid might hit soon lol.

So a guy would get 280 rounds at 50 grains. $1.45 per round plus about 70 cents for a primer and bullet and you're over $2 per round on a handload.
50 grains is likely a small Retumbo load LOL

The only way this is ok, and it's even pushing it, is if that 2 lbs would last the shooter his lifetime. Buy it and be done with it so to speak.

I'm stayin' clear of Retumbo,, if 2lbs, 280 rounds, lasts me the rest of my life, that means I'm checking out in November  :o

Some guys may only shoot 20 or less rounds per year for hunting or whatever.
