    Had to go Albuequerque to update the ol' rental car so I stopped by Sportsmans' Warehouse to stroll by the empty shelves.

    Wow, they had some nosler bullets. I snagged the entire stock of 270 150 Ballistic Tips. (Both boxes:rolleyes:)

    And would you believe it, they had US 869 so I bought all of it also. (1 pound :rolleyes:)

    Does this indicate a trend that things are loosening up a bit? :D

    Yeah, when I find something like that, I like to buy it all before the hogs get it! A friend has a 1 lb can of 869, and I told him I want the whole can.

    Ain't it great? Tom

    There was nothing left for reloading at the one near me but I was able to pick up a spotter and binos very cheap that I otherwise would never have afforded.

    The problem up here is powder and primers. I happened into WSS and found they had a schwack of Federal LR Magnum and Large rifle primers. I should have bought more than the 3000 LR Mags I picked up. I did shore up the powder supply, though not to the extent some guys on here have. Still, not a bad idea for my next trip out.

    I dont even go to SW any more to get their free paper, they otto just close up as they have nothing in Thornton CO store to sell. Empty shelves, empty walls, no guns. BassPro on Quebec St. however has fully stocked shelves, they even got ammo.

    How long is it going to take you to use 3,000 LRM primers?
