well since the big rush on anything related to firearms 9 months ago, I decided to do a follow up talk with the hodgen powder company, why is there still no powder or primers on there dealer shelves, well I got the same answer from 9 months ago, its all you guys out there buying everything, huh, like I am the enemy??? After 9 months of digging around I found some interesting facts. despite the reports from powder pr personnel most distributors (such as Hodgen, Winchester,) yes these guys are distributors, they are not getting any powder either, and inside reports are claiming no one wants to get stuck with a warehouse full of illegal product, the plan is to keep business as usual hoping obama gets replaced in 3 more years. Not that the next person will be any better. Critical ammo shortages affect U.S. military stocks BALL POWDER Propellant for Military Applications - General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems I believe many of the dist. such as hornady, winchester, and Hodgen will be a thing of the past in 2 or 3 years.
