There are too many rumors and speculation as various powder companies take over others. I like certain Hodgdon powders a lot but I also like certain IMR numbers a lot, so I sent this question:

There are rumors on the veritable rumor highway (internet) that Hodgdon will be dropping some of the IMR powder offerings or swallowing them up with similar numbers in the Hodgdon line. Is this true? I would appreciate the advice since, as a rural Alaskan customer, I have to get my powders via air freight which means considerable expense and usually multi-hundred dollar orders. Do I need to be aware of upcoming changes so I can seek new loads with new powders before I make my next order? Thanks,
