    What do you plan to reload with it? I used it a few decades ago, went on to better stuff. You could maybe mail order from Powder Valley. Not saying ot won't work in the right application, some more common powders would likely have more data too.

    For .40 S&W loads. The Hodgdon site shows less pressure at
    excellent velocity. For this round some members are using this with great results. Also want it local to avoid the haz-mat fee.

    That sounds O.K.. Just to have another option available, H Universal works fine in the 40 too, with a handful of other powders.

    I don't have a clue were you could buy it locally for you.
    However there are a lot of powders that work well in the 40sw.

    Here are a few......

    • power pistol
    • WSF
    • WST
    • long shot
    • win 231
    • unique
    • universal
    • HP-38
    • SR 7625
    • AutoComp

    I was looking over the limited data with 4756 in the 40 s&w, it was rather sparse. I would look to a more commonly used & at least slightly faster powder. JMHO

    If L.A. is LosAngeles, not many good gunshops left in SoCal, but you shouldbe able to find it at a Turners or maybe Fowler's, call & ask. I tend to just add 1# of something new to any on-line order I have for primers & regular powder resupply. I haven't used 4756, the numbers look pretty good for an all around, multi caliber powder. I prefer WSF for that or the old stand by Unique. Unique can be had anywhere.

    Since I am 20min to Westminster, I'll have to check that out. I can always use a place to pick up odds & ends.
