I was just informed, yesterday, by Caldwell's sales person, that none of Hoppe's products can come into Canada now, due to labling problems.
He may be right - or wrong. Anyone using this Hoppe's products up here should get it while current supplies last - if indeed, there is truth to the statement. The last time I spoke to him, 2 years ago, he told me Hoppe's didn't make anything called Hoppe's #9 Plus, only #9.

 Strange, I said, I've been using Hoppe's #9 Plus for 35 years, and now I find out from you that they've never made it?

So- his statement yesterday might be true - or not.

Daryl,

Canada and product labeling.

I remember one company supplying black powder to a distributor in Canada.  Normally the labeling down here was in English only.  But to ship the powder into Canada the labeling had to be in both English and French.  The English label occupied the entire back of the cans.  Where to put the French version?

The labeling laws have been in force for many years and until now, products coming into Canada were fine with a small sticky in French.  Perhaps the laws have been made more stringent?

I called my local gun shop and told him to order some for me on Monday. The distributor still has it in stock and it came to the gun shop yesterday, I picked up several bottles... May want to call your gun shop, while there is still some in warehouses some where.

Well, if we can't get more in Kanada because of the goofy language laws, I'm good.  I have a couple pint bottles & a little goes a long way.  I only shoot from April thru October (fingers get too cold when wet with lube in winter) & my supply should last the rest of my days.

It seems that the product is out of stock on thier website. I've put a request for an email notification when the product is in stock within 60 days as per thier site. We'll see.

Considering the 'new' packaging, it would be strange to stop making it at this time.

The last Hoppes I bought was in a heavy gauge steel drum, one gallon.  Wonder if it is still available that way. :-\

Just got my bottle of No. 9. It's in the same 8oz plastic squeeze bottle as shown in an above picture, however, it says Hoppe's 9 with no mention of plus on the bottle.

Same label as the 9 Plus and on the back side of the bottle the use directions has 9 plus in all the instructions. It is thicker than water, but by no means thick like honey.

Do I have the same stuff?? I contacted Hoppe's ( Bushnell ) in Kansas and the consumer rep said he'll have to check and get back with me



thanks,

rudyc

I wonder if "this" is going to be the "NEW" label or perhaps it's an intermediate lable between the old lable like on the glass bottles and the (possibly) new one on page 2 of this thread.

 I'm also interested in hearing a reply from Hoppes. I've seen both labels and always thought the Plus was a newer label that was more marketing such as new or improved. Can't believe there was ever a need for two different formulas of Hoppes for black powder use.

Bucks - it's been called Hoppe's #9 Plus since the early 1970's when I first used it.

  Daryl perhaps the product is unchanged since the 70's. The different labels they use sure are confusing. Roundball shows a pic (pg 2)of an 8oz. bottle of Hoppes that has Plus on the front of the label. Rudyc shows a pic(pg 3) of the same size bottle of Hoppes with no Plus on the front of the label. About a year ago I bought 2 16oz. bottle of Hoppes #9 that has no Plus on the front label. On the back in the directions it refers to the contents as Hoppes #9 Plus?????????????

I bought a bottle of Hoppes #9 plus a very few years ago and it had "Plus" under the Hoppes.  This Hoppes was different from what I've bought since.  The earlier stuff was a little thinner and didn't have to be shaken like the new stuff which is thicker.  The older stuff didn't smell like the newer, either.

Perhaps the new, thicker variety more closely matches the 1970's/early 80's #9 Plus, which was thicker, slipperier and was kind-of milky coloured.

I've not personally seen Hoppes #9 Plus not marked as such, with the Plus on the bottle.

Couple years ago, a friend had Buffalo Arms in the States send him a small bottle of the new Hoppe's #9 Plus as he'd just run out of his 1980's stock. Interestingly enough, it came right through Customs along with some cans of Kroil Oil for both of us. It looked like the plastic bottles on the second page of this thread.

On these labels.  Do they list any ingredients in it???

My bottles of Hoppe's Nitro Solvent lists the ingredients on the label.  Anything listed on the labels in question here?

 The site only shows the 8oz. bottle. Are there larger sizes, like 16 or 32oz?
