    Ouch! Just for reference, before all this supply mess started, i was paying about $118 for an 8 lb jug of Red Dot. I was able to find two more last year. The first one cost me $186 and the second one was $256. I suppose I would pay that again if i could find it.

     

    Works out very roughly 0.18c a shot.....that ain't gonna' break anyone. 
    Put it this way, with the Wuflu, Ukraine war and Australian Defense Industries (ADI) putting out no fast powder now for a few years ..... we're stoked to have these shipments arriving!!!!! :)

    At those pricrs, you can keep it there.

     

    Powder is the cheapest thing in this wonderful sport/hobby and its come nearly 10,000 miles by sea to get here. 

     

    One thing also to keep in mind is that in Australia the minimum wage is $23.23 per hour for a 38 hour week, in the USA its  $7.25 per hour.

  3. Just announced ......There is a Large Shipment of Alliant Powders Hitting Australian Shores, this must have been in the pipeline for sometime, great news for Aussie rifle and pistol reloaders. This along with the massive shipment of Federal Primers, Vihtavouri  Powders, Vectan Powders and Clean Shot powder is very welcome!!!!  -

    I looked at that sign - RFDS - and thought a minute, and it come dragging up out of memory. So I have heard of it before.

     

    School of the air? Never heard of it. Looked it up. Makes perfect sense. Never heard of it.

     

    I wonder why? Oh yeah. It's because it's on the other side of the flipping world.

     

    The right side :) 

  5. British Humour . . . .



    A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter scale hits the Middle East.

    Two million Muslims die and over a million are injured.

    Iraq , Iran and Syria are totally ruined.

    The governments don't know where to start providing help to rebuild.

    The rest of the world is in shock.

    The USA is sending troops to help keep the peace.

    Saudi Arabia is sending oil.

    Latin American countries are sending clothing.

    New Zealand and Australia are sending sheep, cattle and food crops.

    Asian countries are sending labour to assist in rebuilding the infrastructure.

    Canada is sending medical teams and supplies.

    Great Britain, not to be outdone, is sending two million replacement Muslims.



    God Bless GREAT BRITAIN.

  6. Mick and Paddy had promised their Uncle Seamus, who had been a seafaring gent all his life, to bury him at sea when he died.

    Of course, in due time, he did pass away and the boys honoured his wish. They set off with Uncle Seamus all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded onto their rowboat.
    After a while Mick says, 'Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out, Paddy?'

    Without a word Paddy slips over the side only to find himself standing in water up to his knees.

    'Dis'll never do, Mick. Let's row some more.'

    After a bit more rowing Paddy slips over the side again but the water is only up to his belly, so they row on.

    Again, Mick asks Paddy, 'Do yer tink dis is fer enuff out Paddy?'

    Once again Paddy slips over the side and almost immediately says,

    'No dis'll neva do.' The water was only up to his chest. So on they row and row and row and finally Paddy slips over the side and disappears.

    Quite a bit of time goes by, and poor Mick is really getting himself into a state when suddenly Paddy breaks the surface gasping for breath.

    'Well, is it deep enuff yet, Paddy?'

    WAIT FOR IT



    'Aye 'tis,

    NOW hand me dat shovel.'

    so were there protests and demonstrations in austrailia like we had here ? 

     

    this was one of the most unfortunate and unforgivable periods of our history with how we treated our service people , thank a viet nam vet and show a bit of respect 

     

    Yes. it was and is a disgraceful stain.

  8. Read this on one of the latest (June issue) U.S gun mags, I think this could be a big reason ADI (Australian Defense Industries) haven't been putting much rifle powder and nil pistol powder out for domestic consumption -
