    Duson,Louisiana all stores on RCBS web sight said that they could order it for a small fee. I could order it on line cheaper.the midway web sight has everything on back order.the walmart has cut its sporting goods to nothing so it looks like I will have to order it on line

    Its not a local issue everyone is sold out of most of the popular stuff you have to look around for sure. I had to go to an out of the way place as oposed to my main guy and I bought everything he had.

    It has to do with the new president and everyone is freeking out and for good cause I think.

    So far, I think it is all just hot air. BUT, if the demo's get their way lots will change. I have talked to a couple loading supply stores myself and what they said made sense. Hodgdon and other producers layed off employees just like every other industry and they are haveing a hard time keeping up with the little rush after the new president took over.

    I sure hope it is all just hot air!!
