Default Alliant has Suspended Powder Production

A press release on the Powder Valley FB page.

Powder Valley
6h ·

FYI – we have just received the following message from Vista Outdoors (the parent company of Alliant Powders):
“Due to the worldwide shortage of nitrocellulose, the Vista Outdoor supply agreement for the sale of Alliant Powder canisters has been suspended for an unknown period. At this time, we have no timeline for the fulfillment and will be canceling outstanding Alliant orders in our system.
Representatives will provide updates and coordinate new orders based on availability.”
We have heard mixed messages from various powder suppliers about the availability of nitrocellulose, and therefore powder, over the past several months. This is one Manufacturer’s analysis of the situation. We are posting this so you can have all the information we have and draw whatever conclusions are right for you.

Translation "we can sell our Nitrocellulose feed stock to governments for way more money than to the hobbyist reloader" Alliant and parent Vista are not our friends IMOP.

It will be interesting to see if the information about the Alliant production being suspended is confirmed by other sources, especially by Alliant or Vista. I think there is a potential buyout of Vista in the works which might have something to do with it that was not mentioned in Powder Valley post on FB. In the meantime Alliant powders have become unobtanium again.

I actually have E3 coming my way so I'll be good with that powder.

I only know what I posted, which is Alliant is supposedly ceasing production/distribution of their powders for reloading. As yet I haven't heard of any other company doing similar but I believe they are all having difficulty putting their product on store shelves this Spring. If this is true it will cause a greater demand for Hodgdon and other powders.

Mike is right, if you see some powder you know you can and will use, it's probably a good idea to buy it. It lasts a long time and you can always sell your surplus down the road.

I've got enough Nitro 100NF to last quite a while for my 12ga. loads. Now just have to score more 20 and 28ga powder. Loved 20/28 but that is hard to find and super expensive.

Pete, my Magic 8-Ball says big price increases for the remaining available powders and probably factory ammo too.
