This mad dash is tickin me off and I wish people would relax so I can get my damn supplies. Got a brand new TRG 42 on Thursday and I can't get supplies for loads.
I hear ya, my local spots didnt have ANY rifle primers, about 10 LBS of powder, and about 40 rounds of 223 ammo, and they are the "warehouse" for the entire company (runnings farm and fleet). I had to go to the next largest town 100 miles away to get 2 lbs of powder and 1000 fed primers.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Please don't take offense but the way things are lately they may as well be banned. You can't get any of the stuff if you want to.

I've got a multi year supply of everything but I have to replenish if I actually use the rifles much. 5 K loaded and another 5 K components only goes so far. And it doesn't matter if you can recover lead and cast your own pills if you can't get brass or make 'em go bang.

Barnesuser 28-- pm me if you need anything and I'll try to point you in the right direction if you get to BIS.. Dickinson doesn't have a heck of a lot for gun stuff.

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

Just a side note relative to the angry shoppers that think this shortage needs blamed on everyone but them..... I for one, Am glad to see people buying, I am glad to see people not previously engaged jumping in (hopefully with a proper amount of respect). I am glad to see my local shop who has bean sitting on a truck load of inventory for a long time "getting some action, and Profiting". Glad to see people in the sport stocking up and getting ahead of the curve. Glad some people are not waiting until there on the ropes to worry about it.............. Right now as of january 2013: Semi auto rifle interests are running late and paying the price, Reloaders stocking up are trying to beat the next curve and buy some guarantees. The primer shortage a year or so ago should of freaked out anyone that cares and after it resided they should have learned to stay ahead of them selves. Just My opinion but I can't understand folks that are angry they are late to the party when they could have come earlier if they wanted a better seat. No point complaining about it now, Do what you can for now and remember this moment, when things settle down: Capitalize on it and get ahead of your needs.

What you say is POSSIBLE...but if it comes about....I bet it doesnt last more than 4 years...if you get my drift.

Things change quickly when laws are passed by presidential decree...and we only have 4 years to hold our breaths!
