This thread was about reloading supplies being depleted due to people in fear since the shooting. It is not a debate about the idiots in DC wanting to eliminate gun ownership. That WILL NOT ever happen. Period.

People are in fear of one thing; the liberals will use any excuse they can to ban something. That's why the run on guns and ammo started with AR stuff and pistol stuff; it's a favorite for those who want to stoke enough fear in people that they will give up something.
The boat got rocked; with the supply chain being as tight as it is in business these days, that's all it took.
The run has progressed at this point to those who are just buying their butts off in hopes they can continue shooting for the foreseable future. Throw those who want cecession or are preppers, and you've got a lot of extra buying.

Actually some bills being noodled around DO go after ammo. A "Violence Tax" on every bullet sold is being talked about. Limiting or eliminating purchases over the internet. Requiring a license/registration of all ammo purchases. No purchases of bulk ammo over 1,000 rounds... etc.

Given that to chum the waters of FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) why wouldn't you stock up on supplies? If not for the sake of getting it before taxes, limits and licensing....just to keep your shelves stocked at lower prices. For years I told every one of my shooting buddies to "Police and SAVE your brass." They all scoffed back " I don't reload like you do." So they just left it there. They are all telling me they should have listened. LOL. They would be able to sell that stuf for a decent buck right now!

Once I saw the crush for lowers, 80% lowers, uppers, parts and AMMO. I knew the reloading stuff was next....so I got to it before they did and stocked up. According to MidwayUSA, Brownells, Cabelas, Bass Pro, etc...they all expect brass in the stores between March 2nd and March 28th. They of course couldn't say how much it would cost. LOL.

Shoot straight....be sure of your backstop...and load safe!

We will be seeing the shortages here in Canada also. My gunsmith and another supplier told me to get what I can. They say that they expect to receive less than ten percent of what they ordered.
I picked up a 17 Hornet for plinking and had trouble finding ammo and such. Ordered dies, but don't expect to see them for a few months.

Four years ago the same thing happen. Shelfs were bare, prices went up. Some were posting photos of their hoardes of ammo, bragging about it. Making jokes. It was dumb. And it passed, this will as well.

I found one local place on Monday that is not increasing their prices thankfully. I paid $24.98/lb for seven pounds of H1000 and Retumbo.

That's cheaper than I can get locally on the h1000 unless I buy kegs.
