H-870 powder is there any left

I use H-870 in both my 338-378 and my 264 win mag I have a few pounds left .I have checked every supplier and every one is out .I am using Reloader 25 and alot of Norma MPR that I have but the 264 like H-870 best .I hope that Hodgen starts making it all the suppliers say that tons of people are looking for it.The 338-378 like the reloader 25.I cant find any data for either caliber for the Norma MPR powder.My 338-378 also must be cleaned all the way every 40 shots or it changes from a bench rest gun into a scatter gun and one know of a cure?I clean the barrel and almost feel like a slave to it but its a price you pay for so much powder through a little hole.If all the H-870 is gone forever alot of people will miss it !

Get a jug of wc872 on gibrass.com, it loads the with the same data as 870 and is a very good replacement maybe better and the price is right too.

Good Shooting

I just bought 16# of WC872 from Jeff and it is running $5 a pound right now in 8# jugs. Good luck finding any H870--I have 1# left...CJ

I pretty sure I read somewhere that Hodgdons quit or are going to quit making H870.

I read a poster at my reloading supply store that they quit making it as of last July.

It's on the Hodgden Powder website that H870 will be going away because the goverment has stopped using it and it was a mil-surplus powder. That was posted last July '02.
