Supply shortage
« on: July 29, 2020, 10:38:58 AM »
You guys notice that reloading supplies are short again?

I can't find small pistol primers anywhere. And Magtech 12ga brass shells are non-existent. Everyone is out of them.

What have you guys had trouble getting?

Nearly everything is scarce here on the front range of Colorado.   Mostly empty shelves where common Ammo and reloading supplies are usually are plentiful.   This includes reloading dies and presses.   The only thing that seems to be plentiful is .22 LR ammo.

Been out of the mix for shooting supplies since the CV-19. Haven't been shooting, either.

Seems to be everywhere. I have what I need for now, but I'm going to need to re-supply. I hope they get stocked back up soon.

Tons of smokeless powder available here.  Lots of primers too; maybe not at prices I wanna pay...

I haven't shot enough in the past year to need anything.  Still have half a case of #10s, large and small primers and 209s

I have a good supply of primers from some time ago. Powder, white and black too. I haven't been to our local reloading store in over a year, so don't know how things look there. Probably have 1K+ caps and can make more if I need to, both aquarium tubing/primer or tap-a-cap.

Smokeless supplies and guns and ammo are good here. A little higher than normal but not too bad.

They are remaining stable here, but there might be a day or two wait for the more popular ammo and powder. I did hear from a local today that many people in the valley are stockpiling based on their perception of current social events. But by golly, we have plenty of toilet paper in the stores.
