    Hope and Change, OBAMA Fever. I am assuming you are being sarcastic, but if not it is all the proposed gun and ammo bans.

    It's still out there just have to search and get lucky. I went to Cabelas and bought a pound of IMR4350 for $30 and 1000 large rifle primers for $35. The big name stores seem to have more pull in getting their inventory filled.

    Primers and powder are no issue, but finding bullets is tough up here. One thing about obama, he's probably the best gun salesman we've ever had in this country.

    Can't find any primers between Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, and San Diego. Powder is almost non-existant. Luckily I was able to find h1000 and rl33 online before it sold out again. I only have about 500 large rifle mag primers. Should last me quite a while, but I'm still nervous!

    Yeah hope and change are a mother for the rednecks and hunters of America, I cant find any reloading stuff in town and online is a waiting game when you do get to place an order.

    Keep a bit on hand and you don't have to worry about the hiccups so much. I keep a rather large "bit" on hand myself.
    I've been in the lgs lately and they were mumbling about how they couldn't find 5.56 ammo for their new toys; I smirked and said I had enough. I got the "you're the first one I've heard say that" comment.
    I feel for the guys who are trying to get their rifles ready and not hoarding (especially stuff they can't even use in hopes of price gauging), but the idiots who bought blindly and are now scrambling can reap what they've sewn.

    Runnings here in Dickinson had 223, 22lr, 9mm, and 45 acp in but had a limit of 1 box of 22lr per customer and a 2 box limit on everything else. I am doing alright I managed to find 1800 fed 215 gms, 16 lbs of h4350, 10 lbs of varget, and about 700 7mm 162 grain amaxs from 3 different people, one from Texas, Arizona, and Alaska. I should be set until things start to come back to the shelves. Still need to get some RL33 since it is a known fact that whitetails hit the ground faster when shot using RL powders..:D:D
