I am concerned that all prices are moving up on everything that we buy (inflation) and going to make an even bigger jump up on reloading components even after the massive demand abates. I hope that I am proven wrong but I think higher prices are here to stay.
Yes sir that is what I am saying . I am pointing out the fact that if they increase at all then the suppliers (bruno's) is raising the price themselves. A good way to check for example is call Hogdon Powder company and ask them are they still selling their powders to dealers for the same price as last year ? If so then the shops are jacking it up for no reason . I can still get the same price on powders today as 8 months ago if they are in stock on the website that I am set up as a dealer .
I dont mind folks making money but i dont like it when folks take advantage of people.
