    Like the ammo spotting thread, powder spotting. Add to this as you find powder.

    I was just by Continental in Timonium. What I remember them having:

    Benchmark - .223 and other smaller caliber rifle
    WW296 - Magnum pistol and .300 Blackout
    WW748 - Good .223/5.56 and .308/7.62 powder
    CFE223 - Another good one for .223 and .308
    Retumbo - good for big magnum rifle

    And a number of others. With many, only a pound or two. Others, they may have more of.

    Price around $30 a pound it seemed.

    Continental actually has quite a bit of rifle powder, no pistol. I made a list and showed it to Browning Guy a few weeks ago and he said there were a lot of good rifle powders on the list. They usually have 1 lb in the case but a bunch in the back, like 296 and Titewad for instance. From talking to the owner they've had a standing order for 3-400 lbs of powder for quite awhile but it just isn't coming in.

    296 IS a pistol powder. Also used in some rifle calibers.

    Titewad is also a pistol powder.

    Yes, I looked them up, but used for hot loads, magnum mostly it seemed. Like 41 Mag and hot .45's. They've had a lot of both for the whole summer so I got the impression not many people are using it for pistol loads. From what I've read here everyone is using 296 for rifle. Now I'm new to this so just learning the ropes but these seemed to be for hotter loads than I want.
    Thanks for the Cabellas HP 38 tip. I've been trying to order some and apply for a CC at the same time to save $25 but the site is not acting right. Hope they still have some when I call Mon.

    Unfortunately, it does not offer ship to store for powder. :(

    Snagged some Unique.

    Now for Accurate to come into stock.

    Since Pinecone wanted a "Powder Availability" Thread, might as well compile how I search Cabelas since their powder page typically doesn't show what they have in-stock:

    Hodgdon's

    I don't understand why, but if I bookmark those pages, you can usually see what is available even if the main page doesn't show. Haven't managed to catch IMR yet to bookmark it. If I do, I'll update the post
