    Default SOMCHEM will they ever get back to manufacturing Handgun powders?

    Looking towards the next 2 years, SAPSA (IPSC) will be hosting Africa area champs in 2024 and World Shoot in 2025. When this happens, a significant amount of foreigners will be looking to buy completed rounds for these major competitions. Both the hosts of these major events and S.A Dedicated sports persons would appreciate the Handgun powders being manufactured locally for 2 reasons.
    1) constant availability
    2) pricing

    With the foreign powders, DSS just about settle on a powder only to run out 2 months later.

    Will Somchem ever come on-line again?
    Iv searched their website under "NEWS", but found no information

    Pure speculation on my part but I suspect they are using all available capacity to fulfill government orders from Europe.

    RDM will have stock of the following:

    S335 within 2 – 3 months
    S121 by September
    MP200 no manufacturing for 2024 – only 2025 again

    Info I received in April.....
    Recent studies show that 1 out of every 3 liberals are just as dumb as the other 2

    I hope it's true but I'm not going to hold my breath.
