Hodgdon is taking over the powder markets. Hope nothing happens to them. They have the Hodgdon powders, IMR, Winchester and distribution for V-V. A single company with that much maket coverage or leverage kinda bothers me.
Hodgdon now owns both Winchester Powder and IMR. I was told that both Winchsester and IMR will be manufactured the way it always has been and at the same sights, but that Hodgdon owns the names and oversees the quailty control. New IMR powder is in a Hodgdon type canister with the IMR label and I have even seen some 748 in a Hodgdon type bottle, but the rest of the shipment was in the same type of canisters that Winchester has been using.
