Thread: Powder shortage

  1. #1

    Powder shortage

    Just come back from my usual Gunshop who deal with reloading in a big way. They have told me Hodgson powders are impossible to get hold of, they put an order in for thousands of pounds worth of Lee products and got virtually nothing - he hadn't even got a couple of Lee bushes ! Vit have gone bankrupt, but they may be taken over.

    Sooooooo, basically, fill your boots whilst it's still there

    Scrun

    isn't Vit basically owned by Lapua?

    Just bought a cart load of H380, no shortage.
    As for Vihtavuori going bankrupt that would appear to be an old wives tale...
    No need to start a panic this side of the pond.

    Who told you that? No-one has gone bust...
    Eurenco may close one of their many factories, i.e. the one in Finland at Vihtavuori, but Eurenco has 4 other powder factories. Nammo Lapua is in discussions with Eurenco regarding the status of the plant at Vihtavuori.

    Where have you been hiding Scrun, you want to get out more.

    This has been discussed for months on this website, there are numerous postings on the subject. Your gunshop is way off track if he put it to you like that, get a new gunshop.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
