Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

i'm just ordereing on backorder to keep inventory on the shelf. When it shows up, thats fine.

I'm not short of anything really and as far as price goes, you gotta pay to play, thats life. Expect steel price increases, as a business owner, I would do the same.

But then I don't go out and shoot off ammunition to listen to the bang (probably why I don't own an AR in the first place). I shoot when I hunt and thats usually a couple rounds max.

If I want to bang alot, I shoot something affordable...22 rimfire.

Back in the day, I used to touch off lots of rounds but in the las\t few years, not that many and probably even less in the future. Problem is, m y relaoding didn't slow down until after I quit igniting soo many rounds so I have a PILE of reloads in of all ppoular calibers, especially those that are so hard to get right now....

It only takes one round to kill one animal if the shot placement is correct, not a case, not a box, just ONE.

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

Well someone bought the rest of the Retumbo at my local honey hole, but I did walk out with 1000 GM215M primers today. They just cracked open a new case to give me my box of 1000 at $37.98 + tax. So if anyone is near Lexington they have primers, Federal and CCI, and some powder. I know for sure they have H1000 and some other Hodgdon that I don't use. They have quite a bit of Norma MRP on the shelf as well.

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

I gotta think that thereís lots of people out there with an AR that has no ammo, or very very little stock. I read an article online about how many background checks there were and they spiked obviously around 470,000 but incredibly that wasnít much more than last year. The time frame of those last couple hundred K had to of been the last month. (!!?)

When I was a kid, my dad got me started and he said get any rifle you want (almost), and I opted for a semi-auto something or other, and he got a bolt action.. he was hittin campbelís soup cans at 200 regular, I could barely hit a paper target at 100, those were 22ís. It was a lesson well learned, I had a period I did not shoot for a long time, but recently got back into it, and started out with a bolt action savage. I couldnít have been happier with it.. One and done is good for me. (22 is a good alt for plinking and smaaaaart if you like shooting a lot, I had one but sold it, shame on me!)
There is a fad going on for sure and I have nothing against it, they are some great rifles (ARís) out there that are so versatile and straight shooting, you just canít overlook them. Its sort of the rebirth of the M16..
Whatís next? Population explosion, rampid oil consumption and food shortages, energy crisis and economies, itís a different world.. you have to think in world terms now-days, american businesses are still #1 I believe, we just need to stop in-fightingÖ

Midway nor anyone can now ship, ammo, bullets, primers, powder or brass (any component of a cartridge) to New York because of the laws they just passed. I saw this on another forum 2 days ago, some guys had orderd bullets to reload with from Midway and when they went to check out a banner came up and informed them they could no longer ship any componet or ammo to New York,
Some got the same thing from Sinclair and Cabelas. This will no doubt happen in some other crazed states that think like New York. I feel sorry for the rest of New York state because New York city rules the state.

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

I have a friend who was thinking about sending a rifle to Hart for a new barrel and he is now looking elsewhere because of this. Personally, I think he is wrong but it is a very sentimental rifle and he is scared of the situation.
