    Google my friend. I heard powder was non existent. People were frustrated. I googled "buy pistol powder in Ontario " and my first had 100 pounds of vihtaviori the stuff is amazing and I've gon though 4 lbs in 2 months. It's out there. Ship from out of province if need be I buy stuff from the west coast all the time.

    Primers are 35 bucks for 1000. We got lots just look and use gun nutz too. I just got 2000 once fired polished and cleaned police range pick up 40 brass for 70 bucks to my door. Just be a bit of nerd and google out. Set up alerts at online stores and keep your CC at 0 so you can buy bulk to save big.

    Chin up you sound like you got lots anyways.

    Haha doesnt that sort of defeat the purpose of practice with a 45/70 ?

    Actually I have:

    (Rifles)
    45/70
    .308
    7.62x39
    .22

    (Hand guns)
    9mm
    .22
    .454

    And two 12 guages.

    I want to practice with all the above but not so much the shotgun.
    One of my SGs is too short to really be safe or useful. Kind of gimmicky imo.
    My Rem 870 wing 28" vent rib is crazy accurate with slugs. Full bore 3" slugs always seem to hit within 6-8 inches at 65-75 yards first time, everytime. I was surprised it was like that right out of the box.

    I will probably sell the 9mm and the short shotgun as a down payment on a .45 acp.
    The 28" remington is a great all around gun but its what I consider a home gun. It huge, its heavy, its long, its a tank.
    The .308 is a safe queen (afraid to get a scratch on it) its only half built too. Its almost strictly my target rifle.
    The 45/70, 7.62x39, .454 and eventually .45acp sig p227 tacops will be my "go too" guns.

    Eventual plan is to get a few more sks rifles, I love my current one. The plan is to buy a 50 dollar 1" x20" raw barrel blank to really tighten it up.
