    So on scale of 1 to 10. One being the hardest powder to get and10being the easiest to get where would you rank Accurate 1680 rank? I'm looking at loading some subsonic rounds for my 300blk and from what ive read it's a good powder for the round.

    Thanks

    I can not answer the actual question you are asking.

    When I stared loading for my Whisper I tried a few different powder. I found 1680 worked best for me.

    1680 is the magical unicorn dust right now:laugh: I have been looking for a few months now and it is just not out there. I did find some for sale but at 200 for a 8 and then haz mat and shipping it was just not worth it. I found 1lbrs today but once again they are gouging at 28 a 1lb and then haz mat and shipping on top of it. I heard a shop in Eugene had some but was only selling 1lb at a time so not worth my time to drive from the metro area.

    Good luck on your search and if you do find some let everyone else know as I know others are on the hunt also:thumbup:

    I just loaded some AA5744 this morning, going out tomorrow to test its operation and speed on my 10.2in barrel.

    As long as you don't mind buying the powder online, Sportsman Warehouse, Natchez Shooters Supply, and Powder Valley have all had it available online within this last week. You just need to keep your eye on them and when they come in stock, buy quick as they have been selling out within 30 min.
