I’ve been thinking the same thing about gunbroker!I've been looking for IMR 4166 for months?? I only need a pound or 2, but even 8 pounders are nowhere to be found?? I knda wish they'd never started Gun Broker! Give scalpers a place to market thru the internet and they'll buy up everything a hand loader needs.
Well... It's people stocking up but also it's people that are looking to grab it all before actual handloaders get a chance and then to sell it at scalping prices on Gunbroker.
+1. If all hand loaders boycotted buying components at high prices then so called scalpers would be on the hook with a bunch of product they couldn't sell and the next time maybe they'd think twice before buying up everything and anything unless they personally need it.I knda wish they'd never started Gun Broker!

There aren't millions of new gun owners in the UK demanding ammunition so unless the "consumables" are made in the USA, I don't think you will be facing the same issues we are. But I'm pretty sure you will be paying more. . .I'm in the UK and not at the moment having any problems with consumables,is the problem in the US covid 19 or is there another reason?Can I expect the shortage to reach here in the near future?
