    GC AKL and North Shore have 2217 in stock, but no 2208. Cheers.

    Steve's Wholesale have an ADI shipment due in early December, I don't know how long it takes to get to the South Island though.

    There won't be any 2208H in the shipment should be 2208 and 2206H though

    There should be heaps of Aucklander's heading to Wanaka when lockdown ends - there seems to have been plenty doing it during lockdown

    ADI shipment is currently sitting on Melbourne wharf. Doesn't mean much though if the last, several times updated ETA, ADI shipment was anything to go by.

    Steve's said in their latest newsletter that he hoped to distribute to NI before Xmas and SI in the new year.

    Yeah I bought one from RLS at that price a few weeks back, considered it good value at $84.50 per 500g... considering the prices other powders are going for in 500g jars.
    THINK!

    @tetawa. The guys at T/M to sell stuff which is totally overpriced should be ashamed to be a part of our shooters community.

    It's called supply and demand, are you going to reduce the asking price on your house to 50% below current market so you don't feel "ashamed'? I'll bet not.

    "Where can I find powder"? mostly in the hands of those of us that looked into the future, and prepared.......

    I do have a 500g can of 2217 not needed for my current loading requirements, not for sale for money though, only up for trade for .243 - .277 - .30 cal pills.

    GC had new Hodgdon 1lb equivalents H4895 (AR2206H) and Varget (AR2208) restocked a few weeks ago but had a limit of 2 per person, fair to say they went like hotcakes...
