Default Alliant Powder Availability in Asheville

I just returned from my LGS - Morrison's Gun Specialties in Asheville, NC after receiving a call that Power Pistol had come in after a 4 month wait.

After hightailing it to the store, I was lucky enough to pick up an additional pound of PP - $70 total for 2 lbs. This is certainly not gouging, but unfortunately they do not ship.

I was greeted inside the door with a stash of unboxed Alliant powder of all types and 1-4-8 lb packages - more than I had ever seen anywhere. All his promised powder was held in the rear. He stated this was his first shipment from Alliant in 7 months.

In the excitement, I did forget to check on the primer availability - sorry.

WNC - have at it!

Jack

Powders are becoming available here in central Virginia, but primers are becoming the things of legend, myth, and lore. My local shop said it will be at least 18 months before they are likely to have a supply of primers.

Without primers, other components really don't matter. I've got plenty of powder, who knew that primers would become unobtainable? I really hope things turn around soon, for all of us.

I remember the last powder shortage, You couldn't find any kind of powder, let alone pistol powder. I found out (through this forum) that Fin, Feather & Fur in Ashland, OH had Bullseye powder. Me and a buddy called and made sure they had it and asked them to put 2-8 lb. jugs back for us. It was a 6 hour round trip, but well worth it! 8 lbs. Bullseye and 1k brick of CCI primers for each of us. The powder was $119 + change.

When powder came back, it was at regular prices and even on sale; that's when I stocked up! Guess we'll see how things turn out this time around....
