Re: Where to find Hodgdon 1000?

No issue with me. I have 3 Eight Pound jugs in my powder magazine...... Probably more than I need in 5 years.....

Your local gun shop might have some. I know the 2 local to me shops both have H1000, Varget and Retumbo. Most local shops don't have the internet (vacuum cleaner) exposure.....

Just got 2-1000 boxes of Federal Large Magnum Match Rifle Primers tonite (GM210M) at a local to me shop.

Chances are you won't find what you want online anytime in the near future. Internet retailers have it come in and if they can fill backorders and have any left (not likely), it's gone in minutes, whereas, the local gun shop might have it on the shelf for months, getting a dusty lid......

...and your local shop will most likely be chaper even with sales tax factored in.

Been waiting patiently for 6 boxes of Sierra 240 grain 44 magnum Sportsmasters from Midway for a month now. No hurry, for future use as I have 5 boxes not loaded anyway.

Yep, depends on the local shop but I can find a good selection of powders if I poke around a bit. Even 215's and such can be found if you are willing to wait a bit and shake out your wallet when you see them. The problem here is the hoarders and such are still sucking the 22 market to crap. If it weren't for being able (aint the net a wunder??) to gouge guys willing to pay up, this little hoarding bonanza would be over already.

Call Weber Gun's won't ship, been to almost every gun shop in KY, no H 1000, and don't know when they get any.

Thank for the try, if you hear of someone that has some and will ship please let me know.

thanks again

Why don't you try looking for alternate powders to work up a load with...Something you CAN find locally...

Maybe IMR 7828 SSC, Reloder 25, H50BMG, Vihtavuori N165, or something like that?
