Help need powder

Hey guys . I am a newbe here posting but been a member for awhile now. I just picked up some Nosler accubonds 160 gr. But now I need some powder. I believe I have some R22 and H 870 but I wanted to to try some H 1000. Anyone have an idea where I can find some powder. I have tried all my local and not so local resources to no avail. Thanks

    My local place is out of H1000, as well. Probably just have to wait it out.

    You could try online. Powder Valley, Midwayusa, or Graf & Sons. down side will be cost of shipping. Hazmat isn't cheap.

    yes , hazmat would be a little pricey but I am in desperation. I need to get a load up and going soon. I guess I will try a load with the two powders I have. Any one with some suggestions. I have some R22 and H870 . thanks

    what is your pill weight, etc. ??? I've worked with 4 of these pipes, and most of the others here have similar experience.
    You can use some damn slow powders in the stw if you put enough pill on top, and those don't seem to be sold out at present. rl50 and wc867 are in stock at wideners in kegs so if you want a 160-175 grain slug you are actually in luck.

    Several of the guys here have played around with the 50 BMG powders, so I'm sure they would be able to help you out with load data.
