My local gun shop owner told me last night that it has been 90 days since his last delivery of any Alliant products. They are experiencing a shortage of nitroglycerin and their plant only worked nine days in October, so it's going to be a while before you see much from them.
Dealer told me after giving me my green dot,he was limited to 2 8lb. kegs of all powder, 2 red,2 green, 2 promo,etc. Was told by supplier NO more powder was being shipped in until January.Glad I got the 8lbs. I did.I'll stretch it,I originally asked for red dot,but gave him green dot as an alternative,glad I did,he got as much as he could,being 2 kegs of each.
Fred, you're right - I just checked my jug of RE-22 and it is made in Sweden.
Maybe they do make their nitro on-site and are having trouble obtaining one of its ingredients. Whatever the EXACT reason, I'm told they aren't able to make much powder in their Virginia plant right now.
