    nope on the websites, I've been finding the little I need at present locally. They seem to be able to get at least some stuff in. I keep enough on hand to last many moons (or an occasional war) so I really don't worry about much at all for temporary disruptions. I am short on a couple of things, but I'll shoot for a couple of years without an issue.

    Do you need everything, or just brass??? One of my local shops has some lapua brass.... It aint cheap, but from what I see the 338 Lapua really isn't very cheap to shoot to start with.

    I can't find much online. Yesterday at Sportsmans I found two boxes (250 count) of 300 gr Bergers that they had just gotten in. They would only let me buy one box at $179 + tax. They are slowly trickling stuff in there.

    Midway has 250gr Bergers and Lapua, Nosler, Norma and Hornady brass listed as available. Hope this helps.

    I had much the same issue as you, I've got a 338LM on order and have been tracking down components.

    Got my Lapua brand brass from Midway, was BO about two weeks. Center Shot Rifles who is a site sponsor (handle: Coyboy) had 4 boxes posted here recently as well. They might still exist.

    Got a 50 count box each of 300gr bergers and SMK's from Sinclair Intl. They had the Bergers in stock and the BO SMKs showed up in under 2 weeks (late Jan).

    I have been able to find slow powders and magnum primers locally at most places - it is the small rifle primers and 223 powders that are nowhere to be found.

    Good luck!
