Thread: Varget powder

  1. #1

    Varget powder

    Is anyone else experiancing difficulty in getting powders and bullets? Specifically Varget and Nosler BT 150grn in .30cal. I've just bought the last two tubs of powder and the last two boxes of bullets from the dealers around me, not only did I have to hunt them down, I'm told they're not expecting any more for quite some time and it's apparently the same accross the country.

    I was searching for Varget for 6 weeks and managed to pick some up in Northampton. The guys there were selling a maximum of two tubs per person and didn't expect to be getting any more deliveries this year!

    I've just emailed Hodgson re the national shortages, I cc'd in Edgar Brothers too as the main importer but their email account from their website doesn't exist.

    I think if we all did the same they might just take notice?!?!

    Things look like they are going to get worse as the shortages really kick in now
    Just bought the last 2 powders a local shop had today and will be 10-12 months before they receive any more thats what importers have told them.

    Sad state of affairs when shops have empty shelves and no delivery expected for maybe a year.
