Manufacturers Say Ammo Shortage Will Stretch Out for Years

Recommended Posts

Hodgdon posted a flyer on their web site about the powder shortage.

• The current powder situation is due to a record demand for all reloading components and NOT a reduction in the supply of powder.

• We shipped a record amount of powder in 2020 and will ship even more in 2021.

• We are running overtime in our facilities, have hired additional staff and have leveraged relationships with shipping partners to add new shipping options.

• Hodgdon does not sell powder directly to the government.

• Yes, we sell some powder to ammo manufacturers, but that is a small part of our business.

• We do not set sale prices or MSRPs for the price of our powders at retail.

Despite the above, there is no powder to be found anywhere.
Not in the big box stores, not on the internet and not at my local gun shop.

If Hodgdon is producing and shipping more than ever... WHERE IS IT?
