    Where is all the Alliant Powder?

    I can't seem to luck up on any Alliant Powder. I getting desperate for some 2400, Unique, and really need some RL7. Am I just not in the right place and right time?
    Regards

    Haven't seen any in months. Must all be going to the ammo manufacturers.

    I’ve watched for it too. The powder I like, and can get occasionally, is from Hodgdon.

    Same story for me here in North Central Texas. I’m in need of some Reloader 15 but no luck. Did see 8#’s of Bullseye at a local gun shop yesterday for about $270 but rifle powder is what I need.

    Same here. I've been looking for Reloader 19 for months. Haven't found any Alliant products.

    I've been considering the effect the little shindig in Ukraine could be having on powder and primers and I don't think things will get better supply wise until it's over. I hope I'm wrong.

    I attended the recent NRA Convention and asked the Alliant rep when we will see Alliant powder again. IMHO, he really didn't have an answer.

    Think I have a couple pounds of RL15 that I'll never use, PM me if you want to work up a trade or something else.

    Same here. Been needing green/red dot... Found more blue dot than I need ( I shoot very few magnum loads )... It's been too thin... Just no availability. I drive to shows these days just looking for powder....

    I picked 4 pounds of Sport Pistol and 2 pounds of Steel last April. Haven't seen any Alliant powder in stock online or at a LGS since.

    I've been running low on all my powders. I have run out of Unique and have only 1.5# of 2400 left. I called the LGS the other day and they have not received ANY powder since November last.

    You can substitute Hodgdon Universal for Unique. Keep checking Hogdgon's website, you can order direct and I see Universal come into stock pretty regularly.

    I was at my LGS today. They had a few Alliant powders. I was looking for Sport Pistol, they had two 1# containers and would only sell me one. It was $44.99. They had a moderate supply of the powders handled by Hodgdon though.

    If you ever make it up to Southern Colorado, I could spare a keg of Unique or 1# or kegs of 2400, I need primers. I greatly underestimated how many primersowder ratio I really needed.

    I have lots of rifle primers but no unique or power pistol. Bit the bullet on 2K LARGE PP but really need some powder for my Ruger 44 spec. I think we are all in trouble now, prices are going to skyrocket more and anything gun related is going be harder and harder to find much less afford..

    I'm the opposite. I have 8lbs of red dot but can't find blue dot to save my life.

    thank god I have a couple pounds of 2400 but that's not going to last much longer

    I've grown to really like Power Pistol, but haven't seen any locally for two years. My current stockpile (such as it is) was acquired on a road-trip last year.
