    Great powder and fair price from powder valley. Thank you powder Valley for keeping your prices reasonable so we all can do what we love in times like this.

  66. ROBIN (verified owner)

    Would have given 5 stars but did not get know where near the velocities stated on hodgdons website without getting into +p loads. However, compared to A PP it doesn’t have as much recoil or flash which is a plus. If you are looking for a great powder that has very little standard deviation in velocity this powder is it, but you must get a little gutsy if you are searching for PP velocities.

    Thanks for the fast service, it would be nice to be able to order multiple powders (pistol and rifle powder , primers) like in the old days : under one hazmat charge. Just to find products is great. Funny how quantity of products is regulated so much due to supply chain issues but shipping charges are not adjusted to to help the consumer who always carries the burden . Just a thought….
