I had a hard time finding 30-06 brass, supply seems tight. Do you think it's hoarding due to the upcoming election?

Re: are people hoarding already?

I dont think that it is hoarding. For it seems that reloaders are hoarders, all of us.
Think about it, how many people do you know that do not reload but keep a supply of differant bullet weights for the same caliber?
I personally have over 300 7mm 175 grn sp's, almost 100 150 grn 7mm etips, over 200 139 grn 7mm sp's. Not to mention over 100 fed 7mm rem mag brass, 50 rem 7mm rem mag brass and almost 2 boxes of mixed 7mm rem mag brass. Just short of 800 primers and that is just for my 7mm rem mag loads!
I dont even want to start counting my pistol primers, brass, bullets and lead supply and tubes of bullet lube.
In my cupboard I also have 3 different types of 8 pound cans of pistol powder, and 10 assorted 1 pound containers of rifle powder
So, I guess that you can officially call me a hoarder. After all you never know when you will need to have that 1 speacial load for your day out makeing noise

Re: are people hoarding already?

I can only imagine what the liberal news media would say about most of us if the cops came into our houses to arrest us for some supposed crime and had a search warrant. Can you imagine?

"The suspect had upmteen handguns thirty eleven high capacity magazines, a bunch of shotguns and oodles of high powered rifles as well as a kazillion assault weapons. The police also confiscated pounds and pounds of explosives and detonations devices. The police are certain he is a domestic terrorist."

One of my aquantances asked me if I drive or fly to South Dakota to shoot prairie dogs. When I told him I drive he asked if the plane ticket wouldn't be cheaper than the gas. I told him probably so but I didn't think the airlines would let me bring the 12-15 guns and 7000 rounds of ammo on board with me.

Most of us do things in a big way that most non-shooters just wouldn't understand.

Yeah, I guess I'm a hoarder and have been for 50 years.

I have found that if you find something that you need and like buy a LIFE TIME SUPPLY, cause there will be a shortage some day or they will quit making it!!!! (laste item....i.e. Barnes MRXs). Mfg. And society will adjust.
