In my neck of the woods, I have not been able to find any pistol powder at all. Even a lot of the shotgun powder that can be "subbed" for the pistol loads is non existent. Gunbot comes up empty almost all the time. Is it possible to use some of the "rifle" powders to work up a recipe for some pistol rounds. I am having better luck finding 22lr ammo than pistol powder. Need the experts to chime in.

Can't help you on rifle powder for pistol, but a suggestion: have you checked your local backpage dot com or armslist dot com? Many sellers are gougers but you might find a price you can live with to get something without cost of shipping and hazmat.

The fastes rifle powder is slower than the slower pistol powder. So you may be able to ske it go bang, results will be dismal. Shotgun powders, all of them, can be ade to working in all handgun rounds. Try te local gun club or skeet/trap range & any local gunship.
