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.

This week, Rick and Steve sit down in front of a computer and with the magic of Microsoft's Skype, talk to Chris Hodgdon of Hodgdon Powders. They talk about the fascinating company's history, reloading, (or like Rick would say, handloading), and generally shoot the breeze.

Steve and Rick continue on their handloading series and discuss what options do you have when you've run out of handloading components such as primers or powders. Rick also answers some viewer email about rules.
