I keep hearing about places that might have powder and really envy those who are within driving distance of those places. Here in NW FL there is no shotgun powder to be had anywhere. The main suppliers are all still out or at least according to their web sites. Status of "shotgun powders" as of this morning -- Connie's components (No Powder) Gamaliel (no powder) Mid South Shooting Supply (no powder) Natchez Shooting Supply (no powder) Midway (no powder) Graf and Sons (no powder) Same ol same ol Doesn't look like any end in sight any time soon! I tried Mike Graf but couldn't find out how to get on his site didn't find a link to show anything .

You may have better luck with your local distributor. Here in Indiana we have been getting powder from Indiana Gun Club (near Indianapolis). Good price and no HazMat fee or shipping.

Yea Doc, I found out later. I think you posted but I didn't see it until later. Jerry brought me some shot. Didn't think about powder since they had been out forever. Oh Well, I don't think the Dollar ships so I missed the boat on that one! :02:

I have been shooting and reloading since 1970 and the present situation with powder availability puzzles me. (which is often not hard to do)

I don't recall going through a time period where all of the brands of shotgun powder have been in short supply in the last 40+ years. I have seen it where one manufacturer has a problem and their stuff is not available for a while, but all of them???? :hu:

We are going through a time when the lower end factory shells are at a price point where they are at or close to the price of loading shells; so in theory, there should be less demand for powder for reloading, resulting in surpluses and lower costs. As we know, there are no surpluses and few low prices.

Perhaps all the powder mfg/ capacity is going into those low cost factory shells?

Local gun shot has PB for $219 for 8 lbs plus tax. They can keep it.
The owner of the local shop I patronize the most told me that PB is actually a little LESS expensive than it used to be. I think I paid $153 for the last eight-pound kegs I bought but he told me he now sells it for about ten bucks less. BUT when what you see is gone, that's it - PB, all the IMR "SR" powders, IMR 4007SSC and WW AA Lite are no longer being made.
