    I was told today that IMR was no longer producing 800X. Can someone confirm that. I am a novice reloader so I am not always up on current news regarding reloading. If this is old news please just post a link. Thanks.

    Can't find anything about this. Shotgunners are the #1 burners of 800-x, and for them, it's metering is not that bad of an issue. I don't see it going away anytime soon, but with the great consolidation underway, you never know.

    I just bought some a month ago. Not sure that it would be discontinued, but I'm not sure.

    I suspect I'm going to try #7 and #9 next - unless they come out with a #8. :supergrin:

    I sent an email to help@imrpowder.com asking them about it. I will post their reply when I get it.

    ETA -

    Well I got an answer back faster than I expected.

    Hmmmm, maybe a phone call on Monday is needed.

    I was told this info by a gun-show dealer of reloading products. I know info you get from gun-shows can be extremely tainted, but I haven't seen 800x for sale at any of my reload supply haunts either.

    Powder Valley has it in 1#, 4# and 8# jugs.

    But I haven't seen it on the shelves in any stores around here.

    I bought mine off the shelf of Jay's sporting goods, Clare, MI. Their prices are a tad high, but I was there already, so it made up for shipping costs.
