    32-20, 45 LongColt, 20 gauge high and low base, 12 gauge highbase, all the magnum pistols 44, 41 etc., Herco almost does it all. I think Natchez has Unique in stock another all round powder.

    All easy to find except maybe 32-20:

    I'm picking up 4 pounds of herco this weekend from my dad. Hope I like it.

    Herco also works just about as well as Unique in most handgun applications. If I were in need of powder, and Herco was available, I'd get it. Funny thing is that it was the only Alliant powder available at a LGS I saw today (along with Hodgdon 50 BMG) and no one was picking it up.

    I wonder if Midway really has it??

    Powder Valley doesn't have it, and thats where Midways powder all ships from.

    I observed exactly the same thing here in KY. There were probably a dozen 4lb jugs of Herco on the shelf and not another pistol powder to be found. There were also a few 8lb jugs of Promo. I consider Promo to be a pistol powder but apparently not many other people do because it was still there.

    It was still quite reasonably priced so I bought a jug of each. It was my one small financial contribution to the ongoing panic.
