This is from Powder Valleys Facebook page:

FYI – we have just received the following message from Vista Outdoors (the parent company of Alliant Powders):
“Due to the worldwide shortage of nitrocellulose, the Vista Outdoor supply agreement for the sale of Alliant Powder canisters has been suspended for an unknown period. At this time, we have no timeline for the fulfillment and will be canceling outstanding Alliant orders in our system.
Representatives will provide updates and coordinate new orders based on availability.”
We have heard mixed messages from various powder suppliers about the availability of nitrocellulose, and therefore powder, over the past several months. This is one Manufacturer’s analysis of the situation. We are posting this so you can have all the information we have and draw whatever conclusions are right for you.


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

When you wait until you need something to buy something, you will always be left without something…

This will go on until we have regime change in D.C.


I am continually astounded at how quickly people make up their minds on little evidence or none at all.

I’d rather look at it than look for it. Ammo, powder and primers.

The ripple effect in the powder market will be immediate.
Panic early , panic now.

I would not be surprised to see them entirely devote production to military contracts at some point also. Many of the big orders for ammo here in the USA are headed to overseas countries.

That is a different whole kettle of fish. In the next few months. I see much grief.

I can get all the RL-15.5 and 16 I want at the LGS - just not what I want.

15, 19 and 26 would be nice, but it sounds like it's sayonara for a while

Probably a ploy. Every so often some will be available at a new, boosted price

If the manufacture is saying it's almost impossible to make, you may want to buy some, if you are not stocked up already. I've heard this from other sources as well. Just a waiting game at this point. Will it get better after Trump is in office? I don't know, but I do know this current administration is fu cking us gun owners any way they can.

As BSA said, if you can use it you had better buy it…..

A possible effect from the election of Donald Trump might be that he’ll reduce the hassle involved in opening new manufacturing plants, and someone may decide to jump in the nitrocellulose biz, and maybe some other needful things that have us at the mercy of events and foreign ass_holes.
