    You might look on their website. They have a specific section that deals with the current demand and supply..

    That'd be kinda difficult, since the last rumor I saw said it burned down last week. Guess we're really screwed if it burned to the ground twice.

    I was told last week that you may not see any more Hodgon's powder this year. So I found two keg's of Clay Dot last weekend to start using. It was about $25 bucks cheaper than my last keg of Clay's that I pickup this last winter. So far I think I like Clay Dot a lot better.

    skeet man,

    Would you believe they rebuilt the plant REALLL fast and it burned again? Ok, maybe not.

    The word I got from a friend of mine who shot with Chris Hodgen last week. The machine that fluffs the powder to dry it caught fire not the whole plant. But it's going to take 8 or 9 months to get a new fluffer built and installed. So the clays line of Hodgen powder will be out of production for awhile.

    That's not what happened either. I shot with a guy who knows a guy who shoots with a guy that walks the owners dog. He said the fluffer operator stubbed his big toe and will be off for 7 weeks on Workmans Comp.

    Whatever grntitan it's your story you tell it how you want to. But What I wrote is from Chris Hodgen himself. So go walk your own dog.

    I just got off the phone with Mike at Hodgdon Powder, phone #913-362-9455, and he confirmed that there has been NO fires and that they are running at full capacity. He is either telling me the truth, or is part of an Obama cover-up. Mark

    Just for giggles, I went to the Hodgdon site to see if there was any info.

    You can click the link for the facts.
