So far, plenty in stock - but only in my storage cabinet... Most new ones are going directly to ammo manufacturers and commercial reloaders.
Give it time... Things will normalize.
There may be a bright side to this. If, in fact, things do “normalize” the market may soon be flooded with “like new” used guns.....giving many of us the opportunity to buy more firearms....that we don’t need! memtbAs I see it , if the balloon goes up , components on hand won't matter as much as ready ammo. I feel bad for the new gun buyers who can't find ammo for their new guns but prudence should have brought them along a while back.
Where have you been for the last 6 months? The shortages aren't new. They'll continue for quite some timeYou guys having trouble finding reloading components?
Primers shelves are practically bare in the shops......Powder pretty low in supply as well......
People hoarding up I guess.....
Shooter's World powders ("Lovex" in Europe) are very high quality powders from the Czech Republic. Unfortunately "Augusta, GA" is 2.5 hours away (Shooter's World's national distributor in the US is in Greenville, SC). This powder brand has been available in this country for years but unfortunately like others, is perpetually OOS due to demand.Have no fear! Any new anti-gun legislation is a fantasy until mid-February. It will take at least that long for Congress to get organized. Right now there is a flood of primers, powder, and bullets on the water in container ships coming from Europe. You may not like the brands or are not familiar with the powder, but it will be on dealers' shelves before Christmas. Shooters World Powder is readily available in Augusta, GA and load data is available on the internet. The data does not cover every brand of bullet with every workable powder, but there is tested data. Estimation, interpolation, and testing may be needed along with sensible decisions. I got answers and starting points for 223 Rem and 30 Herrett Contender loads with lighter bullets. My chronograph will tell me the rest of the story.
I've been shooting as much this summer as I could because of high temps and humidity. My wife had an invitation to come along, but chose to stay home with her mask.
