Midway has 8208 XBR available. Ordered 2# among other items to smooth out the hazmat.

Unfortunately I donít see this shortage going away until mid next year if the election goes to President Trump. If it doesnít I am not sure we will ever see the shortage go away.

If I see any of the powders you are looking for I will PM you. I have email notifications on for both at Grafs. Hopefully they get some soon.

Anyone seen Trail Boss in stock? I can find it one place online but the shipping with Hazmat is nearly $40

I haven't seen Trail Boss anywhere either, but I've gotten very similar results with Vihtavouri N32C, aka Tin Star. It's in stock at a lot of places. Depending on the load it works out even better than Trail Boss. The ES's and SD's are much lower in my experience. I was using it for subsonic 90gr JHP loads in a 300blk single shot. Works equally as well behind 110gr for plinking purposes too. Cleaner and quieter in both cases than Trail Boss.

Thanks. Had read some positive reports on Tin Star. I am interested in Trail Boss due to its low density/high bulk - even more than Tin Star (based on what I previously read). Seems like a nice option for 38 Special using a Lee hand loader tool. But Tin Star is would be a better option than Titegroup that I have on order for other calibers, especially with TB being hard to find.

Shooters World Ultimate Pistol is another good powder for 38 Special and other pistol cartridges. Grafs has it in stock. You can do light to heavy loads with it and it seems pretty consistent.

No worries.

You may also want to look at the Shooters World line of powders. They are in stock in various places like Grafs and I believe powder valley. I have had good results with their precision rifle powder and ultimate pistol powder. Their SW4350 is very close to H4350 in burn rate.
