I haven't been to any LGS or shows lately, but I'm going to grab what I can if they have any. I have a good supply of hp38/w231 and trailboss, but getting low on rifle powders.

I haven't run into supply problems for my "pistol" powders yet, but can't seem to get any Varget or H110. I have enough Varget left to probably load another dozen rounds of .308.

My favorite gun shop orders me in powder, gave him 10 different flavors and he got about half in so far. I'll pick them up when our road opens when the snow & glaciers have melted off probably around beginning of May. My gun shop has a few vortex always in stock. I want to compare them out the front door of his shop.

I've bought probably 20lbs of powder in the past 3 months. I haven't been able to be real picky but I have Bullseye for 9mm/.45, AA 5&9 for .44, Tac for .223 and Hunter for .30-06. Those are the powders I have used so far and I have atleast 2lbs of each. The best was when my dealer got in 8lb jugs of Tac.

I also have found Unique, Blue Dot, H414 (don't really know what I'm going to load with this one) Win 760 and a couple more. I could have bought more at a BP the other night but they are overpriced on most of their powders and I have enough for right now.

powder and primers, were all over until about 3 weeks ago here, all gone now. not a pound to be had except for one or two random crap stuff. nothing common to be had anywhere here.

shotgun primers, no worries. everything else, sucks. it'll come back, just a PITA for while.

Where about you finding powder. Anywhere close to us??
Sporting Arms
159 Parkview Drive
Winterville

I haven't been over there in over a week, but the last time I was there he was taking a bunch of Accurate powders of of a box that he had just gotten in. I grabbed a can of #7 just for the heck of it. The price had gone up a couple of dollars, but that was OK!

EDIT: I just went over there (I live 4 miles away) to check on the powder situation. Even his is looking pretty bleak! He does have plenty of powder, just not what I use. He also has plenty of rifle primers, both large and small, but I did not see one pistol primer.

laserdoc, if you want his phone number, let me know and I will send you a PM. That way, you can check with them to see if they have what you want.

Just got back from there. I picked up 2 out of the 3 he had of the HP-38. 25 bucks per. He said he had CCI small pistol primers at 36 bucks per 1000. I still have about 6500 primers so I held off

Very good, I like going over there. I wish I had known you were going, I would have gone over there and met you!!

I didn't see any of the SP primers when I was over there this morning, I have about 6000 myself, though..

I went to a new LGS and picked up 2lbs of Hodgdon benchmark and 300 hornady 60gr .224 dia. sp's and then went to cabelas and got 4lbs of H-335 and a lb of clays. I already have a lb of titegroup, WSF, universal, so I'm looking pretty good for awhile. All I need now is bullets just .224's. cabelas had about 20 lbs of h-335 and 20 lbs of hp38 and other misc. powders.
