    DO you guys remember win aa473 powder?

    Many many years ago i used it in 9mm and really liked it. What ever happened to it?

    Here is another one

    Remember Scott powders? I never used them but recall them stating they burned cooler. What happened to them?

    Like most Winchester powders, once you find a perfect load with it, they discontinue it. I've had that happen three or four times now. Really pisses you off when you spend a bunch of time developing a pet load and then can't get the components anymore...

    Win Action Pistol...Gone.
    Win Magnum Rifle ( I think that's what it was called )....Gone.
    Win 540 ( again, I think that's what it was )....Gone.
    And so on...

    I've almost quit using Winchester powders just for that reason.

    On the other hand, the ENTIRE line of IMR (formerly DuPont ) powders is still available, and hasn't changed a bit. The wierd thing is, that IMR, Win, and Hodgdon is all the same company now. ( at least as far as powder goes )
