    Went home today and literally blew the dust off my STW. Looking forward to doing some long range shooting until i hit the net and realize cant find bullets cant find powder. Is this ever gonna end gets so frustrating spending hours on the net or several hundred miles driving your ass off to find supplies. Is anyone else having issues? Looking for 162grain amax or Berger 168 match bullets. Any suggestions or advice i would surely appreciate.

    CMP in July. Everything you need or will need and you are close enough. Free admission to watch the best shooters in the world and all the components you will ever need plus Cedar Point is 8 miles away.

    Hey WV,

    A bit of a drive, but last time I was there, Fin,Feather & Fur in Ashland, OH, right off I 71 had a pretty good stock of powder and some bullets. Sportsmans Den in Shelby, OH, also had quite a good stock of powder....at really good prices....bought RL 25, 5# keg for under a $100!!!!! Check it out! Cabela's near Wheeling has sucked for any components for at least the last year....

    I just started a Camp Perry thread btw.

    I know the owner of Fin, Feather and Fur and I was down to Ashland about a month ago and he told me he would be at CMP with a full load of Hogdgon propellants. Maybe Bruce Hodgdon will be there too...... he's a big muzzleloader hunter. Shoots a CVA.

    Interestingly, he had at least 100 8 pound kegs of CFE223 on the shelf in the basement when I was there (and a bunch of other Hodgdon as well). I picked up some Berger 6.5x284's and some Sierra 240 Sportsmasters in 44 magnum as well as a couple boxes of Federal Gold Medal Large Rifle Magnum Match Primers. Got a 4 pounder of Unique (I use a lot of Unique in handgun loads and shotgun loads) and some Lil Gun too.

    He will be there, Dawsons will be there too along with the big players on Merchants Row.

    I've always got great deals on components at CMP. It's my must do for components for the year.

    Best of all, no haz-mat crap and no inflated ship cost.... I can fo the Ohio Sales Tax instead.

    I have been having trouble for over a year getting supplies for shooting. Here in the South West it has been very hard to find bullets powder primers etc. When you do find it they put a limit on how much you can buy. I have been searching all over it has been very spotty. I hope it clears up soon.gun)

    Can't help you with the powder, but this is a great place for bullets that I have been buying from since 2009 when he worked out of a shed in the back yard. Jake is a standup guy that you can trust. Do check back often because his stock is constantly changing.

    Hope this helps.

    I had to drive 100 miles 1 way for powder, then they would only sell me 2 lbs. That's only 140 rounds for my load.

    Same for me here in Alaska. I go in with my list and hope they have primers. usually they don't. But if they do you are only allowed one box of 1000 and your done with primers. Then I go over their list of powder to see if there is anything I can use. Usually not.

    In the last month I am starting to see primers coming back to where they are putting them back on the shelves but still have to use the list to access the powder.

    Still no 22 long rifle to be found. What I have read is when a store gets some in you are limited to one box of 500 rds, and they are usually sold out within the first half hour of the store opening. People know what days the stores get their deliveries and they are line up waiting to get in before the stores even open up. This is fine and dandy but really a pain when you live so far away that going on a hope is not worth the trouble.

    Good luck Revraz and to everybody else, let's hope for the best in the near future.

    I've seen the reloader powders here and there but the hodgdon has been hard to get. I got on a waiting list with Graf and sons. It took about two months but I got 10 lbs of h4350 for my 6.5x284. Primers I see hitting the local shops more and more and bullets I just search online and can usually find what I want somewhere.

    The reason why Hodgdon is so hard to get is the bulk of their propellants are manufactured in Oz and shipped to Shawnee Mission Kansas to be packaged. The powder plant in Oz got smoked, literally.

    I see loads of 22's but you'll pay for them. I used to buy Eley primed, Vitavouri loaded Wolf March Extra for my indoor pistol leagues for 30 bucks a 500 round box. It's now $119.00 Glad I bought a full case (20 500 round boxes) last time I bought them which was 3 years ago. Kept on sealed ammo cans, they will never go bad.
