No, I am not part of Skylighter, don't own any stock, have never even met the people.

I just thought a few of this bunch might want to take advantage of a half-price sale they have tonight, Wednesday, and thru Thursday night. Better move fast.

Half price on everything. And anything. In any amounts. Plus some free goodies tossed in on top. You may have to sign up for their newsletter, but it is free (and kind of interesting).

Check it out at: https://www.skylighter.com/HalfPrice.html

Mods: I hope this does not violate any policies or cause any problems---if so, just scratch the post and I'll consider my hand slapped.

Fireworks are cool. In this area we shoot a bunch of big fireworks on July 4th to celebrate Independence Day. Nothing special noted on my calendar for June 28th though...(?)

Oh yeah, thanks for the heads-up there, Ben!

I like that you can pick up David Sleeter's book: Amateur Rocket Motor Construction for a mere $33 (+ shipping)!! The local Barnes & Noble has it for$120+

Received my order today. They emailed me after placing my order that some things were backordered so the wait was expected. They sent some really cool extras with my order. The things I did order are great quality and will reorder more when needed. Thanks powderburner for cluing us in on there sale.

I aint got 'jack' yet.

It seems that everything I've ordered online recently takes forever. I've ordered a thousand rounds of ammo quite awhile ago and had my credit card charged immediately. Then I got a message that it wouldn't get to me until late April.
Its a conspiracy I tell ye.

I have not received my order either, but I am not worried. These guys apparently got a response to their sale offer something like 10x larger than they ever expected. They sent out a follow-up email (at least they did to me) asking who needed their stuff in a big rush, and they (skylighter) would try to push those orders towards the top of the list. I have had good service from skylighter before and I am sure my order will show up here in good time.

As to:

1,000 rounds really isn't that much. I used to go through that much in a couple weekends at the target range.
The problem these guys are seeing with prices is probably because we have a war going on, and many of our national resources are going into that effort. Since military ammo is about 99% common with civilian, this chews up a lot of powder, a lot of the bullet manufacturing capacity, likewise primers. And the cartridge case (being brass) price is undoubtedly suffering the same escalation as all copper products these days. Prices will probably even out again in a couple years, after we withdraw from Iraq...unless we enter Iran.
Anyway, skycopp, have you checked out Cheaper Than Dirt? They run sales quite often and seem to have some pretty good prices.

Ammo sales have jumped 100% since the 08 elections. I've checked CheaperThanDirt, but my favorite brand/caliber is OutOfStock/Cannot Be backordered.
