An Episode of Hoarders
So I understand everyone hoarding primers, but it's gone too far here. A recent trip to the only place in town that stocks reloading supplies showed not a single bag of media for my tumbler nor any case polish. They are usually well stocked on that stuff. It kills ya! Even MidwayUSA was out-of-stock on corn-cob media for tumblers. Argh!

The last gun show in Toledo, virtually no ak or ar rifles on the tables and no ammo either. They can't make it fast enough.

Yup getting stupid here too even Ruger's BX25 10/22 mags were selling at our local gun show last weekend for up to $100 ea. had to laugh when I get them for under $20
had an offer for my 30rd mini-30 mag for $115 told him I would take $2000 for the mini with the mags & he actually was thinking about it.
It is not for sale but for that price I think he would have owned it

Buying in bulk has taken over the web buying. I want some 40 cal and probably will have to enter the winner takes all bidding wars. :yucky:

Ha! That's crazy. How many weeks and still not a brick of 22LR to be seen in my town.

seen about 20 boxes of 5.56 at Walmart last week. thought about getting a few(3 box limit), passed. went back a day later and all were gone. haven't seen any anywhere since till today at F&F.

I had stopped buying ammo from F&F when they raised the price for 45 acp from 16.00/50 to 25.00/50 for no apparent reason. anyhow, gave them another chance a few days ago and voila. Remington 22LR bricks for $18.00. went back today to pick up one more and all gone, but they had WW 55gr 5.56 on the shelf for $11.99/20ct box

LGS had lg pistol primers which are getting scarce

Sorry, this don't relate to reloading so much as it does to hoarding.

Still no .22 LR in this town. Our retailers like Fred Meyers and WalMart get some in, but they sell out within minutes of bringing the stock out to the counters.

Scorpion starting to see more & more here give it a couple months for it to reach you way up there takes awhile to get through Canada:lol:

we have already been thru all that down here. ammo is getting back in stores and ARs have come back in price from $700 and up depending on what ya want. I didn't have any real worries,I was well stocked before it went crazy. I try to always have atleast 1k rds per gun

Anybody see rimfire ammo showing up yet in quantities that don't fly off the shelf?
