You can't in anyway get it, you can't import it, You can't even get to look visit the factory and look where it could be made.

Are the powder makers trying to " choke" the USA ? Politics ?

Personally I think it's the politics are trying to choke the powder supplies in the US.

However, there have also been actual supply issues not including the ever present hoarding. I think one major manufacturer even had a fire in which gunpowder wouldn't last long :D

No they are proprietary powders designed for FNH and under contract can only be made to order and only sold to FNH. This actually very common practice.

FN is a Belgium Euro company , the Euro's mostly hate the USA , they supply NATO who also dislike the USA , yes I know the USA is a member. So it doesn't surprise me they are deliberately restricting supplies to the USA

Really? You have used PBC powder?



A ding in a test round used for that type of testing is irrelevant.

Of course I not used the powder because I don't think it's available to the general public. If I was making a video about my products I would ensure all that was shown was perfect.
Ps what happened to the T6 I ordered?

Confirmed that it will work with the Newer Trimpro2 Universal Shellholder and it fits tight too. Maybe not as nice as the EA one, but it still works! :thumb:
You can actually upgrade your earlier gen Trimpro to the new one with this here and it will accept several calibers - http://www.midwayusa.com/product/271401 ... conversion" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

First, for which platform are you loading? The FiveseveN, PS90, AR57, something else?
Since you said "pop up clip" I am assuming the PS90 or AR57. (BTW, they're magazines, not clips)

Here are some threads that should cover what you're looking for as far as powder charge. Just pick the one that applies to you firearm. http://www.fivesevenforum.com/search.ph ... mit=Search" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Those threads are a good place to start anyway. Since the author's loads (for the PS90) for #7 went over 7gr and you're popping mags at 6gr, there may be something else going on.

I have no idea what you are trying to ask on this:
Also how do fix dies so the neck properly
If there is a problem with the neck, it might help to post pictures of the cases. The instructions for how to post pics are linked in my sig line.

He is having issues with the sizer die body on his RCBS dies, that is what he is referring to.

Then it's a manufacturer's problem, not much he can do except return it & get a different/better set of dies.
