    Local shop has been getting a little in. I have seen H110, IMR4227, 4350, 4895, 7828, and even 8# cans of H4831. The faster pistol and shotgun powders are harder to find though.

    2400 is a good magnum pistol powder. I have 2 lbs of it for a .357 I no longer have.
    Guess I need to see what else I can run it in that I still own

    "Legendary for its performance in .44 magnum and other magnum pistol loads. Originally developed for the .22 Hornet, it's also the shooter's choice for .410 bore.

    I saw some rifle powder, but not much in the way of pistol powder yesterday. Was surprised to see a couple pounds of Benchrest, AA2200, and Xterminator on the shelf. I bought one pound of each and left the other for someone else. First time I've seen powders that I normally use in over a year. Hope that was a good sign overall and not just good timing.

    Red Dot has been showing up as the 'Promo' brand but just 8# jugs AFAIK.
    Power Pistol is not around here. primers are available at decent prices hit-or-miss.

    My LGS had a pound of H335 which I snatched up and they also had small and large pistol primers, I recently got 5000 CCI small rifle primers from Midway. Slowly the shelves are filling up, very slowly!!!

    LOL!
    I was reading that thinking "Holy cow, how did this dude get a hold of win231", and then I got to the rest of the post.

    Is there a comparison chart for smokeless powders?

    I'm the other guy who bought 8# of Unique from Powder Valley, FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. Relatively new to reloading, and have been waiting maybe 1.5 years to finally try this powder.
