    Where in the heck is the powder?

    I need some rifle powder! Nobody local has anything. Not meaning bad selection, I mean anything. I can buy a bus load of primers now but no powders. Checked all the online venders and they got nothing. I can buy stuff on Gunbroker at a really bad inflated price. What is everyone else doing?

    Rumor is that Obummer abused his executive power (again) and forced the powder manufactures to sell the gov 90% of all powder over the next 5 years and if they refuse, they will be shut down.

    I check all the local stores regularly and when I see something, I grab it and I'm not too picky on what I can get my hands on.

    I have been able to grab a few pounds here and there.

    It comes and goes in waves. So watch http://gunbot.net/reloading/Powder/ and youll get an idea as to when things are moving and showing up.

    Been to Skagit Arms a few times lately and they have had a decent stock of rifle powder. Saturday they had quite a bit of r-15, r-17, AA2230, AA1680 and about another 10 or so varieties. Only pistol powder they had was H110.

    I havent seen any 748 in some time and been longer since I have seen any 231. I have a decent supply of AA#2, which is a really nice comparison powder to 231, if your gonna be over anytime soon I can spare some of that.

    What are you loading with 748??
