    In the past I've always purchased my powder a pound or two at a time as I needed it. Due to difficulty getting powder I've decided to just order an 8 pound keg of the two powders I use the most. I mainly use Alliant Unique and 2400 for my loading. An 8 pound keg of each will last me quite a while.

    Here is the question. Who is a reliable supplier of gunpowder that will take a backorder, and actually deliver when it comes in? I realize it will take MONTHS to get it, but I think I've got enough powder to get by. The suppliers of reloading components in my area (SW MO) won't take any backorders. I'd appreciate it if those of you with experience ordering from these suppliers could recommend a reputable, reliable, supplier to me. Thank you for your help! :wavey:

    None of the major retailers appear to be taking back orders on powders at this time. You best bet is to just diligently watch Graf’s and Midsouth and order whatever pops up asap.

    Agree, Graf's is really good about BO but if you order both, you may end up paying two HM fees if they ship separately, which is very possible in todays climate.

    Thanks for the replies and information. I contacted Graff's. The lady I spoke with on the phone was very nice. She set up an account for me and allowed me to order the powders I need. She advised me that I would be contacted when my order was in and ready to ship. Now I just have to be patient and wait. Thanks again! :wavey:

    Yeah, prepare for a year wait. Keep looking. I am a buyer at any decent price of any powder I use enough of. I have powder but like primers, can't really have enough when it's not available.:crying:
