With the ammo and component shortage what's everyone's regimen during this time? I'd love to say I had stockpiled enough to shoot the way I wanted to for the next 10 years but that's just not the case for me. I have enough to get me through, I hope. As long as supplies trickle back in in the next year I'll be fine. Im normally in the 700-1000 rnds a year category and am going to be slowing that down to about half of that personally, at least until I can get more primers. Have to practice to make good clean kills at those extended ranges but I'm not going to allow my supplies to run out either. What's everyone else doing?

I’m not shooting that much. I have rifles pretty much dialed in for woods hunting, medium range and long range hunting scenarios. In some cases, I’ve abandoned developing separate Varmint loads and just used one projectile for “double duty” deer/Varmint if it’s suitable to the task. I am doing more rimfire plinking these days and some coon hunts but my ammo stockpile for that is generous.

Weather at the moment a bigger deterrence than shortages of any kind. I could shoot normally for 3 yrs and not skip a beat. Primer wise I could shoot for 6 yrs.
But as forecasts loom above us, I bet 90%+ of us feel dangerously low on components at the moment.

I need to do dime drills and dry fire. I don’t have time with life and the family to go to the range as much as I want to. I have single friends who’s jobs get in the way of their shooting. Trying to figure out when life slows down so I can shoot, hunt, and fish more.

l prepped accordingly and have enough conponents and bullets for a couple of years or more.
I’m good on bullets and powder, but I totally dropped the ball on primers! ‘338 dude’ really bailed me out on the Federal Match Magnum primer scene, though. We met up at a half-way point and I traded him some RL26 for the primers....so I can at least work on some Magnum loads a little bit....just gotta establish some limits on how much I ‘play’. 😉

The one thing I like the most about this place is the people, always willing to help each other out.

I’m pretty good on powder, small rifle, and large rifle non magnum, but rifle magnum primers I might be short on. Lol I kind of got caught with my pants down with the primers. I lucked out recently and got cci450, cci br2, and 210m, now to find 215m or cci250.

Dry fire when out hunting ect dry fire just as you would if taking a hunting shot or match shot. think the shot from loading the round to sighting the target to sending your round down range use your range finder wind meter bipod or tripod or pack and take the shot just dry fire it will help all shooters match or hunters with trigger pull sight picture scope dialing wind reading ranging ect

an awful lot can be practiced well with a quality rimfire rifle if you have the rounds :)
Agreed! As I noted in #12, I normally shoot with one of my .22s while waiting for the barrel to cool off, when doing load development, barrel break-in, or any range time.
