I had planned all week that Saturday I would purchase small quantities of reloading supplies. There are two Cabelas stores 1.5 hrs. from me and a Gander Mountain as well. I called a local dealer first that I frequent and he chuckled and said he didn't know when he would have powder or primers.

I then called the Cabelas east of me and asked if they had Universal or Unique or Bullseye, The fellow at the gun counter said he had Universal and small pistol primers. The wife and I made the 95 mi. Trek only to find out that the fellow I talked to was mistaken, no primers or powder.
I did pick up a tumbler and another reloading manual and some winchester 231 and stopped at our favorite steak house so all wasn't lost.

I should have my press by Tuesday but I still have no primers, I will have to beg a coworker on Monday, I hope he is in a good mood.

somewhat feel your pain. So far I have a scale and reloader and brass. Soon as March hits i will have more time to do some searching. Haven't even bothered looking for ammunition since before Christmas.

Letting the manufacturers get some products out to the shelves.

Our Cabelas {20 minutes away} is about out of everything. They did have some Varget, Sour Cherry candy and bore brushes {they were out of .475 brass bore brushes though}
And that brings me to a complaint about Cabelas, the guy I asked about the .475 brushes looked at me funny when I asked for one. He never heard of one. Kids,,,,,,,,,,

The smaller shops still have some of the powders and primers I need. I've been forcing myself to buy either a pound of powder or 1000 pack of various powders at every opportunity. The other thing folks should be accumulating is lead wheelweights and roofing lead. ;)

The closest Cabela's is 45 minutes from me.... I was in last Sunday and they were brimming over with ammo and some of the prices were less than what I expected.... alot of .223 for under $10 / box. 9mm and .45 were abundant. I didn't check the reloading supplies at Cabela's as the day before at a much smaller shop I had bought a pound of Unique and 3,000 Federal No. 150 primers that I didn't really need but added to my stash.... I was shocked to pay $125 total for these but I hear fellas paying alot more than that in some places for the primers alone....

Here in central Illinois, I found primers at a small shop, $32.00 per thousand and saw unique for $18.00. I was thrilled to find it.
