I believe what we have experienced in the past will seem tame to the next emotional responses to Hillary or anything anti-gun. The speculators who are waiting with cash in hand will buy out inventory and sell at greater profits. For those preparing, ammunition will still be an issue. For those reloaders components will still be an issue. If you have not prepared for the next emotional roller coaster, Good Luck.
Ps I believe any caliber will be bought for further profit, too many people verbalizing the same philosophy and thought process, you will not see product on the shelves.
You might be right, then again, pretty much everyone I know who reloads in any volume are sporting very large inventories. Past experience seems to have taught everyone I know that shelves can be empty for far longer than they ever dreamed. Believe me, as a guy who just moved, just the stuff the movers wouldn't move was a lot to move (powders and primers). Watching those kids lug all those boxes of bullets, all those 5gal buckets of brass, ample stock is a heavy problem. Even with all that stuff, I found myself placing a really big order with Powder Valley, just last week..
I will grant you that a rush appears to be starting again. I was in a local gun store picking up a pound of a couple of powders I had never loaded before for a caliber I just started loading. This store carries a very large selection of powders and a large inventory of each for such a small store. As I was reaching up for the two new products I needed, I noticed their Bullseye stock was empty. I was surprised as I had been in a few days earlier looking for a Dillon caliber conversion for 380 Auto (my new caliber) and the Bullseye shelf had been full. I asked the guy what happened to all the Bullseye and he said a lady had come in and bought out all they had. These were at pretty steep prices over what someone would pay in volume online, so yes, it may be starting again. CCI small primers seem to be MIA again, most popular Alliant handgun caliber powders are pretty much gone, etc. How bad the next wave gets is anyone's guess.
Who knows, maybe even 40S&W won't be dead after all.....
