reloading components

6 posts in this topic

Schells just opened a new store. They had one in our mall but they opted to move into a new store in a new mall area about 1/2 mile west and south of the new Cabelas. Today, We went there just to check out the place. My bud needed a few 100 CCI 200 LR primers but their supply was depleted. After calling all around town we were told that there simply are none in any of the reloading places in town and powders and bullets are in high demand and low in availiability. Kinda sounds like panic buying with the new political regime in place. I've got plenty of stuff myself but, I wonder if there is going to be a big riff, country wide, with restrictions on components? Guess I did prety good when I bought two bricks of .22's last year at 10 bucks per 1000, a couplla pounds of powder, 500 primers and a few boxes of bullets. Any of you reloaders seeing a trend?

Seems to be getting harder to find anything firearm related as time goes by right now. And they say the economy is bad, all firearm related industries are selling at record levels right now.

Well it is getting dificult to find any deals on regular shells too cripes a box of fed premieums cost 15 -20$ for 2 3/4". If that keeps up they will have to post guards outside the sporting goods stores. heck they cut off your cadiletic converters from your cars allready. I was told federal was not makeing any ammo for awhile to suport the war effort but if thats true I have no real Idea. But it could be a reason for lack of some ammo and inflated prices for some stuff. The clerk at gander told me that.

I have noticed an increase in the cost and sometimes availability in primers, bullets and brass. Powder, not so much, but I am sure that will be the next thing.........

crazy Gotta love the rumors. Federal is pumping out plenty of ammo. There was definitely an increase in consumer demand after the elections.

Of course it is, the manufactures are playing on our fears. They know that if they jack the price reduce the production they will make a fortune. Humans are like lemmings, tell them something will be gone, and they will flock to get what ever it is.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
