    my fathers gun shop / bullet casting company closed last year... i cleaned out his basement and i have so much powder left.

    he doesn't reload anymore, or cast anymore... so he has me loading all of the ammo we shoot now...


    i have over 800 pounds of powder here i have been selling off little at a time.... but right now nobody is buying. so i am stuck with it..... I'm going to start listing it here soon to try and thin out the stock... there are some powders i will never use,

    At one time I tried to keep a years supply of components on hand. Over the years I have changed that to 2 election cycles or 8 years.

    Run out first I think I would need some powder and since I don't have any I guess the answer must be I already did run out. Best of luck to those who have powder and reloading components as I am guessing things will get tight again soon.
