    You'll be lucky to find a stockist as most shooters saw the draught coming and bought up remaining stocks just after christmas. There's talk of no availability till next year, same goes for H4350 and H4895 - the 3 most popular of the Hodgdon line. Most are now looking at alternatives to VarGet and N140 is proving a good alternative. Also worth consideration is Ramshot TAC which is similar in burn rate but is a fine ball powder - popular with throwers but loathed by tricklers.
    I fear you've missed the boat Rob, there have been a fair few threads warning of the impending shortages for some time now.
    I also can't help wonder if this obama fuelled panic purchase run over the pond is going to dent future sales of american powders like Hodgdon and Allaint once things simmer down as most reloaders over here and in Europe will have standerdised on European produce. Then again, will they notice or care?

    Ok, thanks all, guessed it was going to be a bit hard to get
