Hodgdon is discontinuing H50BMG
« on: July 10, 2018, 06:43:42 PM »
For anyone who uses H50BMG, Hodgdon said they're discontinuing it. Apparently it's not a big seller and it's not compliant with the new EU REACH regulations. I assume there are additional powders which will be impacted by the same regs.

If you need some I'd pick up a keg or two now. I've got 2 kegs but I'll probably grab a 3rd just to be safe. I only get about 400 loads per keg in the 338 SnipeTac so 3 kegs would be just enough to burn out whatever life's left in my 2 barrels. :tup:

Just when I was able to expell the thought of getting a 50 out of my head I read this. Now I want one again. Dang it

Where did you see this? I looked on their website (quickly) and didn't see anything.

i haven't found anything recent(within the last few months) but doing a web search showed a bunch of threads on various boards last fall talking about how most of the hodgdon powders were going to banned in europe due to not meeting some EU standard.

in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

Well I hope that doesn't affect us at all. Their own website says H50BMG "shares the same technology as VARGET", I'd hate to see VARGET disappear because europe got their panties in a twist.

If anyone needs some I have 9lbs sealed that I wont be using I sold my 50. Also have about 125-150 new primed and unprimed brass. I'll make some a great deal on.
