IMR Powder Bankrupt

Spotted this thread in a shotgun forum. It appears the manufacturer of IMR powders has filed for bankruptcy in Canada.

Don't know how this will effect the supply of IMR powders in the US.
I am no longer a member of this forum. Bye!

Looks to me like it will be business as usual, just new owners.

Had me scared there for a moment, visions of having to go looking for a different powder than IMR4895 for my Garand...
"Bother", said Pooh, as he chambered another round...

SNC is a huge company. Among other things, they are also the owners of Simunition, and the incredibly populart FX cartridge that is used heavily in reality based training.

It is far better to dare mighty things, though riddled with failure, than to live in the dull grey of mediocrity.

I had the opportunity to meet one of the past CEO's of this corporation.
He was a WWII RCAF Fighter Pilot, CEO of this corp. and Chair of the Calgary Oilmans Club as well as just about everything else. Truly a dynamic individual.
The company has contracts which extend well beyond the scope of the reloader. If the flow of powder stops from them, there will be another companies powder come along in no time, that we will not be able to get along without...

Live in peace... But defend it...Embrace it... But never take it for granted...
