    Graf's has no more REX 1 and doesn't know when more will be available. I should have stuck with Red Dot. What's up with that????

    Yeah you should had stuck with Red Dot the old stand by can't go wrong with Red Dot.

    I heard that Winchester bought Rex out and going to call it AA {452-Rexall} but im not to sure about my source because in the past I have found out they was drunk at the time I was talking to them!!
    And found out a week or so later it was all make believe.

    You do know that REX Powder is made in NITROKEMIA Hungary? They have put out press releases over the last two years that they will no longer import overseas. I don't know if this is a fact, but I have read this . FWIW.

    This was an old factory and has had trouble for sometime. Due to pollution requirements they shut the powder end of it down. I believe they still make fertilizer.

    REX 1 is a great powder. Darned shame, if true.

    Well I used Red Dot for Thirty years, I've used REX for however long it's been for sale. So back to the old standby. I don't even know how I got involved with REX in the first place. What was I thinking.........

    Sad but true. Probably going to go to ClayDot for my 1 oz loads (almost as econimical as Rex 1) and Green Dot or Clays International for 1 1/8. to replace Rex 2. It was fun while it lasted and saved me literally hundreds of dollars on powder.
