no gun powder

Can't seem to find any Imr 4350, Win 231,Imr 4320 or any other powders I use to reload on a regular basis. I am not willing to use up my small stock for daily target practice. I am changing my calibers smaller this year for hunting coyotes, to stretch my powder out for big game hunting. Any one else changing calibers do to powders shortages? I am in in Canada.

You are in the same boat as everybody else. I have hardly been out shooting this past year!

At least we can still buy factory loads, but I am going to use my speciality loads sparingly. While continuing to go though trigger withdraw.

Re: no gun powder

Getting powder is tough. In particular 4830 and such. My last batch had to settle for reloader 17. I shoot 270 win and while it is not the most preferential, it is at least gives me the ability to shoot, Got mine at powder Valley. Got it about two weeks ago loaded up some ladders in 130,140 , and 150. To much going on probably get to shoot them next week. Must be a black hole out there some where.

Re: no gun powder

I bet we could get gun powder if we had a new president who was gun friendly.
