Next January marks Hodgdon Powder's 70th Anniversary service the shooting community by providing high quality, well loved smokeless powders for pistols, rifles and shotguns. We managed to get Chris Hodgdon to come on camera one more time to celebrate their anniversary and to also announce new powders, like the IMR Target, Red, Blue, Green, Unequal and the much sought after Hodgdon CFE BLK for the 300 AAC cartridge.
This week, Rick compares the old Hodgdon Clays powder that was made in Australia to the new Canadian made Hodgdon Clays and the competitor, Alliant's Clay Dot. Rick also shows us the repair that was done on the slide on his Detonics Combat Master.

We do this every year. We invite Chris Hodgdon from the Hodgdon powder company to give our fans an update about the state of handloading powders. Chris is kind enough to talk about some new products that will ship next year and give us some background info about how Clays is coming back on the market.
