Ramshot Powders - Availability?

I haven't seen any Ramshot powder in a long time and am a big fan of Hunter for my .270. How's the availability elsewhere?

I have been looking for Silhouette for over a year now. And I don't think I have seen the others either.

WDE! BTW RS-Big Game and X-terminator are two of my favorite RS powders. I have a suspicion that AA2230 and X-term. are the same, but I don't know for sure.

There was a LOT of TAC for sale about a month ago.

This stuff is not like toilet paper, where you can pretty much count on it being there when you feel like going to the store. Reloaders need to remember that powders and bullets are done in seasonal runs. Buy enough of it when it comes available, and buy it when you don't immediately need it. Lay in enough stock to last you for three years of whatever it is that is your preferred shooting hobby.

Some Ramshot powders are identical to Accurate brand powders. Both owned Western Powder Co.

I picked up a 8lb keg of TAC at my local gun store, paid $175. Will begin using it soon, as I am running out of W748.
