    If you like Red Dot, check out Alliant "Promo". It's slightly less bulky than Red Dot, but other than that it's interchangeable and it's really cheap. Not a lot of people know about it, so it doesn't sell out as fast. (also Green Dot is a good pistol powder that's not very popular)

    So, where is the best deals on Surplus Powder at these days? Maybe some 820...

    Does anyone have any March 2010 updates, especially on "pulldown" bullets and .223-.308 suitable powders???


    TIA

    Also, has anyone here ever done business with an outfit called:

    "River Valley Ordnance??"

    I just purchased 2 kegs of WC844 from HiTech. Good service. Powder works well for me with Wolf primers and Hornady 55's for the AR.

    I just bought 8lbs of WC844 from Pat's Reloading for $85. Even with the $25 for Hazmat (total $110) it still is better per pound than buying H335 from my local gunsmith who marks everything up through the roof.

    I also bought 500 M2 150gr FMJs for my M1 Garand shooting (highpower matches) as well.

    They were very helpful and I'm looking forward to having a good stock of powder for my ARs as well.

    Hope this helps
    Click on the Shop Online header above the powder selection

    I ordered 4 8 lb jugs earlyer in the year
    That way they pick up the hazmat fee

    FWIW, just got an email from Wideners aaying they have 844 and 846 in stock.
    FWIW; AFAIK; IMHO; YMMV; yadda, yadda, yadda.

    Saw this topic and date originally posted. Had to chuckle about the prices. Things have certainly changed over the years. Just managed to get 8#'s BLC-2 and IMR 3031 at Natchez. That Hazmat fee hurts but either you pay it or quit shooting.

    GIBrass is still relatively cheap.



    WC820 Brand new, virgin powder. Orignal application is for the U.S. Cal. .30 Carbine
    new Ball M1 round. This lot loads at 14gr with 110gr FMJ projectile. A ball powder which
    can be loaded using Hodgdon H110 data. Ideal for .410 shotgun and the
    .357 & .44 Magnums. Limited quantity.
    This is new ball powder.
    $140/8# jug.

    IMR7383 This is a slow burning stick powder originally used for the Cal. .50
    M48A2 Spotter/Tracer round. This is not the same case as that known as
    the .50 Browning Machine Gun cartridge. This powder is NOT recommended
    for the .50 BMG round. It is a very bulky, single-based powder, composed
    of 85% nitrocellulose and 15% stabilizers, flash inhibitors and graphite;
    that was developed to replace the IMR4831 powder that was being used.
    It has about the same propellant energy as IMR4831 when compared in equal
    volume. IMR4831 data can be used. Begin with starting loads, reduced 15%
    by weight.
    This is new powder, not pulldown.
    $56/7# jug.

    WC857 New item. A slow burning ball type powder developed for the .50BMG tracer
    ammo. This powder burns faster than the typical WC860 thru WC872 series of
    powders. This powder has not been released as a canister powder. Loads can
    be worked up using H-870 or AA-8700 data, less 10%. Burning rate seems to be
    similar to Hodgdon H1000 or Reloder 25. An excellent choice for the .300 Win Mag,
    7mm Mag, and other magnum type calibers. Good results in .25-06 with heavy bullets.
    This is pulldown ball powder from Lake City.
    $72/8# jug

    IMR5010 Original application is .50 Cal. BMG ammo. Same powder as originally sold
    by Hodgdon as H5010, and similar to their current 50BMG. Very slow burning
    that can be used in most of the bigger magnum calibers.
    This is pulldown extruded powder from Lake City.
    $64/8# jug.

    WC860 Original application is U.S. .50 Cal. BMG ammo, used for the Ball
    M33 and API M8 projectile. A ball powder which can be loaded using
    Hodgdon H870 or AA8700 data. Just received a limited supply.
    This is pulldown ball powder from Lake City.
    $56/8# jug; $216/4-8# jugs ($54/jug); $300/6-8# jugs ($50/jug)

    WC870 Here is some of the exact original type powder as was sold by Hodgdon, called
    H870, until discontinued. A ball powder originally used in the 20mm Vulcan
    round, until replaced by WC872. This powder is also very similar to Accurate
    Arms AA8700. Because of the lot to lot variations in burn rate, be sure to
    begin with listed starting load data. Works great in the .50BMG and other
    large capacity magnums.
    This is pulldown ball powder.
    $48/8# jug; $176/4-8# jugs ($44/jug); $240/6-8# jugs ($40/jug)

    WC872 Original application is U.S. 20mm Vulcan ammo. A ball powder which
    can be loaded using Hodgdon H870 or AA8700 data. Very limited supply.
    Ideal for .50 BMG and other large capacity magnums.
    This is pulldown ball powder.
    $48/8# jug; $176/4-8# jugs ($44/jug); $240/6-8# jugs ($40/jug)
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Anyone have a good link to Hi-Tech Ammo? For some reason I can't seem to get to their site anymore.

    Good morning all. I'm new to this site but am looking forward to the information on hand...
    Question: I have two containers each with 5-8 lbs. of powder. They are from River Valley Ordnance, Harvester, MO. One is RVO-62 and the other in RVO-57.
    Anybody have info on the company, what these powders might be and what they might be used for?
    Any info would be of great help.
    Thanks,
    1trapper
