Shooters World Powder...new supplier?

Recommended Posts



I just saw this on the NSSF newsletter.


They have a powder called "Cowboy" that has the same burn rate as Accurate 5744, which I understand is being discontinued.


Not sure what size order you'd need to place as it appears they sell to reloaders with FFL Class 6 licence.

It's been mentioned on a few of the forums over the last few months.

Shooter's World Powder has been available for several months now.

 

5744 is a fast rifle powder, suitable for cast bullet loads. Why a similar powder from Shooter's World would be called Cowboy stretches the imagination. Buffalo Hunter would be a more appropriate name.

 

Good luck, GJ

 

 

BTW - just bought 8# of 5744 - Gamaliel's has it at less than $30 a pound, and in stock. For a powder that some folks claim is going away, Accurate is sure making it available and talking it up. I think this is just an ill-founded rumor. Why would someone deep six one of the best cast-bullet and .45-70 powders going? Ah, well, but IMR (Hodgdon) just did on (SR)4759, didn't they?
