    Where's the powder?

    I didn't know where else to make this post, you can change it if needed.

    I've called and been to every store in So. Utah to buy some Bullseye or other powder and every store is out and all powder is or has been on back order for a month...no shipments are coming in. I talked to an LEO friend who told me that their department can't even get ammunition for their officers...is this happening everywhere, or is it just a glitch in this area???

    Nah. We've got lots of it here in the few stores that carry it.

    I am afraid we are going to see more and more posts like this one in the future

    You can order it from Midway if you can't find it locally. I don't think this will be a problem in the near future.

    If they are out of ammo, it's probably due to all the panic buying.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    Just finished traveling 100 miles to get the last can of TiteGroup and three boxes of ammo, hope this ends soon, happy to hear the rest of you seem to not be having this problem. I'll keep you posted when this situation finally turns around here.

    +1 to this. Order what you want and they ship it to your door. You may want to save up and make one large order though, that way you only get hit with one haz mat fee!

    Try Crossbow Enterprises, Codez CO, Tel 970-565-3383.

    I have been dealing with them over 12 years, They stock primers, powder, bullets in bulk and attend a lot of the Crossroads gun shows.

    They have NEVER been out of stock YET. They were at the Tucson AZ gun show a couple of weeks ago and had a truck load of "stuff"

    Just checked with these people and they're out of Bullseye, but they will be at the LV gunshow and hope to have some there, looks like it's a trip to NV.

    I just got in a big order of powder and primers in from Natchez, can't speak to the local situation.

    Doesn't seem to be a shortage on line.
