I've looked at the usual places on my side of town. Cabela's, Gunmaster etc. I need AA2200. Going to take a ride out to Wiley's and maybe the guy in Mesquite.

Any other places to check? I don't mind a little driving but don't wanna end up in Waco! cool

Accurate Arms powders are not generally a stocked powder. I don't use them a lot since I have to ship in the powders.

Call Gibsons in Weatherford. It's a drive for you but it's closer than Waco.

Cannot say that I have. I'm not really looking for it.

I'm building a custom upper in a wildcat cartridge. The guys who did the development swear 2200 is *the* powder for the thing. (6 x 6.8)

What guys are you speaking of?
I have been shooting that round for quite a few years in a custom AR. Probaly the most popular powder is XBR8208. I do know where you can probaly get AA 2200 but itís 200 mile drive from DFW

The guys from Black Hole. Anyhow, I just bit the bullet and ordered 8208 and 2200 from Powder Valley. I was hoping to work on loading some over the weekend. I guess I'll just have to wait. Not worth the cost or hassles to hunt this down.

Thanks for all the suggestions on where to find powder.

What powders do you have on hand? I have used close to a dozen different powders over the years that shot good. CFE223 H335/N133/AA2520/Terminator/ IMR3031/Varmint/Benchmark/N135/N530
You will have fun with that round. I have heard mixed reviews on their barrels so hopefully yours is a good one.

Mine shot great with H335 and although you will have to use a drop tube I got highest velocity with IMR3031 running 70gr BTís at 3333fps

Thanks. I'm waiting for dies and my tube to get here. I've heard the same things regarding BHW barrels. I'm hoping mine is not problematic. So I wait. I have brass and pills. smile

Pretty sure I saw plenty of 2200 at Alpine about a week ago.
