    What has happened to Rex powder? I was told .it is no longer available. We were using it to reload for our students' trap team along with cheddites to keep costs down. It was a little dirty but an effective sub for premium powders.

    Not sure if its true, but I was told by an avid user of REX that a manufacturer in China bought the company that manufactures it. Anyone know if that is true?

    Yes. It is my understanding that it is no longer being imported. If anyone has it advetised, buy all you can afford because they are not getting anymore of it. Clay Dot is my next powder when I run out of Rex I and II. Still have about 75# or so to burn through. Priced as economically as Rex was and cleaner burning too.
