    Look around, a few brands are coming back. Promo, Tightwad, 20/28, 300MP, etc.

    If you are tapped, bite the bullet, order online and pay the shipping.

    What Rick said. There are many powders that will work for us. Get what you can, you may like it better than what you have using.

    If I am out of powder, it doesn't matter to me that I can't get what I normally use. I used 296 for more than 30 years. When a friend gave me 8 pounds of 2400, I switched immediately.
