Hodgdon Powder Company Acquires Ramshot Powder, Accurate Powder and Blackhorn 209 from Western Powders

Hodgdon Powder Company is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Ramshot and Accurate smokeless powder brands and the Blackhorn 209 muzzleloader brand from Western Powders. This acquisition is effective October 1, 2020, with the company set to immediately begin shipping these new products to wholesale and retail customers.

“This acquisition of the Ramshot and Accurate brands further solidifies our portfolio of smokeless brands and products for our handloading end users,” said Steve Kehrwald, president and CEO of Hodgdon Powder Company. “And the addition of Blackhorn 209 to our world-class muzzleloading brands like Pyrodex and Triple Seven uniquely positions us to serve the muzzleloading consumer. With these brands, we also add the capabilities of an additional ballistics lab to continue developing the data our customers demand from our Reloading Data Center tool and publications like our Annual and Basic Manuals.”

“Hodgdon has always been a strong competitor in the reloading powders industry,” said Doug Phair of Western Powders.  “The Hodgdon family has built a robust company.  Ramshot, Accurate and Blackhorn 209 will make excellent additions to the Hodgdon family of powders.”

“For years, our friends have referred to the Hodgdon family and company as ‘The Gunpowder People’ and this acquisition is another example of our dedication to the handloader and muzzleloader hunter,” said J.B. and Bob Hodgdon, co-owners and sons of the founder of the Hodgdon Powder Company. “We have experience in acquiring the IMR Powder brand in 2003, the Winchester Powder license in 2005 and the GOEX brand in 2009 and we plan to put this experience to use in expanding the reach and customer base of the Ramshot, Accurate and Blackhorn 209 brands.”

After years of use the powder hopper on my measure is very cloudy.  Replaced the OEM plastic hopper with a Pyrex hopper from Dram Worx:

Great stuff.
Reloading / LED Light for Reloading Press

I've been using an LED light from KMS Squared and have been very happy with it.  Only problem is that the lights are a little too bright.  They offer a dimmer switch option now.  You can get 10% off by using the coupon code 'UR10'.

Can anyone recommend a good PCP on Oahu that works with HMSA?  Someone that has good communications skills would be good.  My current PCP's office staff just suck - they don't answer the phone or reliably return calls when you leave a message.

Reloading / MidwayUSA - Blemished Bullets Hot Buy
« on: June 18, 2012, 09:20:17 AM »
Received an email from Midway this morning.

Tip:  Buy enough to fill a USPS medium or large flat rate box.  You might have to keep adding 1 order of bullets a time and click on the 'shipping estimate' button.  The .224 & .308 match bullets are a good deal.
