    Our club wholesale supplier - Parks & Son - told us they don't have any more 700X and they called the manufacturer and they were told that they probably would not have any available until November 09. This comment was made on Thursday, July 2.

    Anybody else run into this 700 X shortage problem?

    Dear RDF59,
    700X is unavailable until approx. Dec 2009(Quote CAC June 18th@ PA Shoot). I became "700X powderless" on June 15th. Scoured Internet sources and found some....called and heard several times, "sorry, sold out!"..all the way to Western, Washington State. Been waiting since January 2009, no luck. If you find an 8# jug, put your hands on it! You will pay around 105 to 120 when & if you find one! I have used 700X since 1990, no more. Switched to Alliant Promo (75.00/8#) (Made in USA) and won't be going back to 700X due to the HIGH PRICE! and lack of availability from powderless "Hodgdon". Estate sales and trapshooting friends have produced more components (for me) this year than our local distributor!
    Respectfully submitted,
    Jet Boat Bill (Upstate NY)

    I know where some can be had but by the time you pay hazmat and shipping the cost is so high it isn't worth it. What is everybody paying for 8 pounds of 700x? Jeff

    BL 350, I'm only repeating information I received from the Alliant rep. at the PA State shoot. If he lied to me I lied to you!!

    I really thought 700X was the only powder as my father-in-law had loaded it for many many years.

    I bought a jug of Promo last spring based on price and I could not believe how will it worked on my one-ounce loads. (Not so keen on the 1-1/8's I made.) burned 32lbs of it in last year and a half.

    Could not find 700X this year anywhere so I bought an 8lb of Green Dot.

    Wow.... Green Dot fells like shooting feathers compared to 700X!!! And Holy $h!t it breaks targets too!

    Sorry, no more 700X for me.....
