Trail Boss in north central OH ??

Postby Packrat1947 » Fri Sep 09, 2016 12:11 pm

I've checked at Cabelas and Fin, Feather & Fur and they don't stock it. I do not want Titegroup, and have plenty of Unique.

I'm in North Central OH. (Erie/Huron Co.) Anyone know of a stocking dealer within a reasonable driving range?

Thanks in advance.

Try calling around. Loading components are a weird critter to hunt down in person these days. Most recent example for me was at Field & Stream in northern Kentucky. Sometimes they have a wide variety. Next couple of visits those shelves are nearly bare.

Last I knew, Fin does carry it...you just have to catch it when they've got it on the shelf. A couple of months ago, I picked up 7 bottles of it for a couple of friends of mine at the Fin on Bagley Road.

Pedlam,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to make an excuse to get over that way; I'll call first. At the new store in Milan, the guy said they have had several requests for it.

I've got a buddy that swears by Sportmen's Den in Shelby for his reloading. Might be worth a call to see if they have it.

Called the FFF in Middleburg Hts, Ashland, and Milan. No Trail Boss.

Called Sportsman's Den twice; no answer at "firearms".

I give up. Thanks anyhow.

You almost make me feel guilty for suggesting the phone call route. If it is any consolation, I too have had gun stores NOT handle phone calls well at all. Been transferred to the appropriate department, who then leaves me on hold for ten plus minutes. (I generally have to be bored or desperate to stay on a dead silent phone that long; worse is when they have annoying recorded music.)

I went to Black Wing Shooting Center and picked up two bottles of Trail Boss ($16.00 each).

Black Wing is near Delaware and Marysville Ohio. My sister lives in Marysville so I visited her for the day.

Not typical for them. I buy all of my reloading powder and most of my handguns from them. I have called them 3-4 times over the last two months to check stock and prices and always have them answer.
