Is powder still in short supply all over the US or is it just my state? I've heard people say they are finding stuff regularly outside Utah but within its like a black hole.
I think if you're after a specific powder, then things can be tough.
I saw no H4831sc anywhere in Albuquerque but plenty of 2400. One place had a LOT of 4lb jugs of Red Dot but little else.
Primers are certainly easier to find but the price is $35/1,000 & up.
Count yourselves lucky though; powder's $70/1lb back here in the UK.

Cabela's here puts out various powders once a week and you have to be in tune to their timing. Other places are hit or miss also. I have enough varieties and quantities to last a while.
I've been using Unique in my 380, works great and uses the same charge as my 32h&r magnum. 4gr Unique for the 32 with a 85grn jhp. and 4gr Unique for the 380 with a 90grn Sierra hp.

I'm okay on primers, but powder... I'm getting a little antsy...

As for primers... everyone has them that I can see. Cal-Ranch, Cabelas, Gunnies, Scheel's etc all have 1k boxes of them in all sizes.
