Thread: Hodgdon powders

    Hodgdon powders

    I was told at the weekend by an rfd I visit from time to time that Hodgdon powders are now banned in the UK due to a chemical that is illegal over here, anyone else heard this? Personally I think it is cra* and he is trying to switch people onto his vast stocks of Ramshot powder, but I would be most interested to hear others views, cheers.

    I read something a few weeks back on this subject but for the life of me can't remember where. It's only certain powders that are affected and not all powders from what I can remember. It's something to do with certification and EU regulations from what I can remember.

    P.S. I think Laurie posted something on the matter either on this site or on Full-Bore U.K.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Laurie explains the reasons why certain powders will not be imported this year and possibly next.
