Alliant powders
 
Is anyone else finding Alliant powder to be non-existant lately? Not just sold out, but my LGS has not even received a shipment of any Alliant powder in months. I NEED about 4 pounds of Blue Dot, 1 of Unique and 1 of Red Dot and there is none to be found.

Maybe they would respond to a "letter to Santa"-type request?

I sent them an e-mail query. I got a shipment of powders from Powder Valley in Early December. Even then they were out of pretty much all things Alliant. Everything I got was Winchester or IMR. Interested in knowing what's up.

About a month ago I scored an 8 lb jug of Unique and a 1 lb jug of Bullseye @ Sportsman's Warehouse. You have to be there when the doors open the morning after the truck arrives (if the truck arrives.)
It's out there, but it will require patience and no small amount of luck. I can't remember the last time I saw primers, though.

Not everyone likes or does facebook...but if you do, powder valley has a facebook page and they post when they receive product . You have to keep up with them and order quickly.

My LGS has tons of Alliant (Unique and Red Dot), but no Power Pistol which is my preferred powder.

Primers seem to be more of an issue in my area.

My lgs had a few 8 lb kegs of blue dot. Maybe 8 or 9.

Geez Louise!! 9 kegs of Blue Dot? I do not remember the last time I saw anything bigger that the 4 or 5 pounders.

You anywhere near Austin Texas? I will drive an hour or two for an 8 pounder

I can't find any powder or primers. Rarely bullets either. The only powder I ever see is black powder. Doesn't help me much.
