Powder, Primers, bullets, brass and all of that... im good I have had to shelve a project for my too young son due to current circumstances, but that's ok, he is only 2 years old atm But, better to have it sitting in the safe, which is locked and padlocked inside a closet, than to wait till he can actually use it. My grandfather had my Westernfield 30/30 in his safe several years before I was "old enough" and that was back when .... hehehe well... more than a couple years ago.

Besides, I need to put serious and significant thought into my son's project. I may very well make myself one just like his, so he feels like "hey dad uses it too..." There is no 1 will do it all WELL...but easily many that can do A-Lot-of-it-well-enough. So I will research supply, equipment longevity, and utility etc carefully, then do probably a dual build and heavy supply stock up so we will not have to worry about "bumps in the road" like this.

Actually considering the 6.5 Creedmoor or just maybe a 7 Creedmoor. No such thing as a Magic 1 for all ... :P Always about trade offs.

SCF... are you really as old and crusty as you come off ..?
or are you just cantankerous in general?

/grin
Have a good one!
I'm old and cantankerous. I'm retired from the industry and I own my own prototype machine shop where I make stuff including British Motorcycle parts 'cause I collect British bikes besides firearms.... I work at my own pace, keep the door locked because I dislike company and stay away from the wife. There is a big train whistle on the front of the building with a sign that says "If you want service pull this'.... You pull the chain and the whistle wakes up everyone for miles around and may or may not summon me. Len is older than I am, but not by much.

I also talked to a friend of mine and he said that a local pawn shop has started selling .223 rounds , 5 rounds per sandwich bag . The owner has sold 12 .223 Ar's in less than 2 weeks.

Its safe to say there is still a "mad dash" on reloading and shooting supplies.
I just bought a CVA AccuraV2 at cabelas. They have had none on the rack lately, I look a couple times a week as they are my neighbors. People are buying everything I guess. Maybe the air rifles will be next. The new generation atr rifles are at least as lethal as a 10-22 with no cartridge, propellant or cleanup and no noise. Just the thing for a covert inner city wacko.

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

I feel like such an optimist.

Instead of looking at a bare shelf and thinking we are all screwed, I look at the bare shelf and think about how much of that stuff will show up CHEAP in the not too distant future. I just hope that some of the people who are buying up firearms and ammo stick with it and expand the shooting hobby/ sport/ individual right.

This to shall pass and my lesson this time around is to not assume that 9mm and .223 will be readily available.

If I told you it was an Airsoft replica, I'd be lying. Maybe I should post a picture instead of my MG42 machine gun. At 1800 rpm, it's a hoot, an expensive to cycle hoot.

I discovered many years ago that ALL automatic weapons are too expensive to shoot, hell a little full auto sub gun and a ak47 dam near ate me out of house and home when ammo was cheap. Full auto is only fun and effective if someone else is buying and carrying the ammo. Am I the only one that wonders why the infamous black rifle is black? They color code cloths, trucks even socks but carry a dam black rifle. Guns should be matte camo........just sayin.
