Had to start digging into my old stash but would you look at those prices from the late 1980's!
Powder is just as good as the day I bought it.

3macs1 I bet you have powder so old it is priced in English pounds?

So the first of my Boyd's stocks arrived last friday, along with an order of P & W reloader parts. CBS picked the parts box and charged me HST coming in to Canadastan, 62.00 ( most expensive of the two) they also add 9.99 to the bill for handling ( putting on the fekkin sticker )...nothing xtra charged on the gunstock.
Yesterday, my second stock arrived...with a CBS C.O.D of 49.85...again HST plus the 10 bucks to lift up the box and attach the GD sticker !!!
Like to know what the figures are for just putting CBS stickers for HST on the packages ??
With the volume of mail , and the number of stickers they could attach in a shift, I'd say they're doin purty frikken good !!!
