Powder Availability.

Due to high demand for raw materials around the world, Nitro powders are getting varied in their availability and costs. In addition, the loss of Maxam, our key European powder manufacturer, there have been large holes to fill.

We are managing to get stocks of various brands to help cover as many aspects of shotgun cartridge reloading as possible. Bellow is a list of powder availability notes:

Maxam – Discontinued. Company no longer trading. 

Vectan – Shortages in raw materials has led to significantly reduced availability and a very high-cost price.

Lovex – No current stocks available.

VihtaVuori – Some powders available, reduced stocks.

Hodgdon – Good stocks have been secured and more will be available shortly.

Alliant – Some powders available. No longer Exporting from America, unsure if additonal stocks will be available. 

Powder stocks have been a struggle over the past year, with the loss of Maxam from the retail market being our biggest upset. We are trying to keep stocks available for all reloaders, with the continued investment in reloading data, to go alongside available powders.
