    I bought some from Wideners late last year to test and I finally got around to loading some. I think the RG is actually cleaner than the IMR4895 and I'd like to get somemore. Wideners is out.

    Anyone know where I can get this powder?

    It's gone. There won't be any more available since at least the US Govt has decided they don't want us to have any more surplus components. It will all be destroyed in the future. Only possibility will be other countries having surplus ammo they will sell for components vs usable ammo. As I understand it there is a new UN agreement that most nations have signed that is supposed to reduce the availability of surplus weapons and ammo which, after all, we all know is only good for shooting people. Whoever heard of shooting paper??

    Had I known I'd have bought 10 containers. This stuff is really good and was cheap compared to IMR.

    I wish I had bought more too. I remember that I almost passed on it last year because I read internet complaints about muzzle flash and other weird things. So far I have no problems with it in 223, 308 and 30-06.
