    Over here on the west coast all of my suppliers that I go to are out of Green Dot powder, actually there is no powder to be had.

    Can someone point me in the right direction where I maybe able to find Green Dot powder?

    This whole hoarding thing has got me baffled. I just don't understand why EVERYTHING remotely related to guns is gone and out of stock.

    Call the White House or Sacramento...they can tell you. We're all in the same boat, but it has to be worse in Kaleefornia. Regards, Ed

    Probably not the cheapest Green Dot you will ever buy, a pound at a time, and when you add in the haz-mat fee. But it is in stock.

    Green Dot can be used for pistol cartridges so even if it is not really a popular pistol powder. You can bet pistol reloaders are now buying it for that purpose since many pistol powders are not available.

    Bryan,
    Recobs has it, but only in 1 lb containers. $16.89 a lb.
    In Jamestown, CA yesterday was able to get large pistol but
    was limited to 2 boxes. He did have a fair amount of powder.
    He did say supplies were starting to get a little better, but
    not much.
    Oh and the primers were $5.49 a 100.

    Some of the less popular shotgun powders such as E3 and American Select are around in the 8 pound size at Natchez. Again the haz-mat fee though.

    Thanks for the responses. The hazmat fee is something I have learned to live with since there is nothing locally where I can drive and get it.

    I am liking the specs for American Select. Very similar to Green Dot.

    Call Graff's or Gamaliel Supply. They have plenty and are willing to ship.

    Bob, every powder on Grafs website is sold out. I'll call them though.

    Ajax, that is usually my supplier, but they are out too. I actually found a 8 lb keg of Red Dot at my local place. It's not Green Dot, but beggars can't be choosers.
