If I had a need (like a very large group buy), i'd go get them, not yours mine....
I'm on the bidders list, I've bought used machinery in the past so I'm already approved.
It's there, it just that individuals can't deal with the quantity. I'm not adverse to buying 5000 OFMB cases and I have in the past but it's a lot of work between getting them and cleaning them and sorting them and then decrimping the pockets and uniforming the pockets and flash holes not to mention a FL resize and about 10% will be scrap anyway.
This 'sky is falling' crap is just that. Most bulk suppliers are indeed out of sorted, OFM brass but it's coming back, barring another 'impulse buy'.
People got stupid when this stuff all started and sucked up all the inventory.
I watched some idiot at Cabelas 2 months ago, load his plastic shopping cart full of 223 rounds, literally shoveling them off the shelf. I thought the cart would break (was sagging a bit) and I thought to myself WTF.
People that make statements like the Government is crushing them are very ill informed to say the least.
