Where's the powder?

Just bought myself an RCBS Rock Chucker and bullets and I have some left over brass I saved from my 7mm Rem Mag. Just wondering where all the darn powder is? Trying to get some Hodgdon H1000 or Retumbo for my Winchester Model 70 Sporter 7mm RM, but everywhere is sold out online. Any suggestions?

Re: Where's the powder?

You will have to be patient and keep looking at a lot of different websites. It does come up from time to time, but disapears as fast as it comes in. If you want it now, go to Gunbroker. There is always H1000 on Gunbroker for sale. You will pay a much higher price for it, but it's there to be had if you MUST have it right now. H1000 is an awesome powder for the 7mm. I would either be patient and wait for some, or pay a little higher price from Gunbroker, versus trying to find a substitute powder and trying to make it work. That's just me and my 2 cents. Good luck!

Wait for it to come to a store at a reasonable price!
I hope those gougers on gunbroker NEVER make a cent!
Try imr4350 imr7828 or rl22

My S-I-L picked some H1000 up at the local Chinamart (Walmart) the other day.

A lot of those sellers dont even reload. They will beat you to the store buy the powder and resale it

I have had good luck with H1000 (currently using), Reloder 19 and Reloder 22 for my 7mm RM's.

I have been itching to try IMR 7828 SSC, but think I'll save that jug for when I get my .280 AI and .25-06 AI build completed.
