    I also love the comeback " components are just as hard to find as loaded ammo." Any serious reloader saw this coming long ago and stocked up on components. Hell, I got $500.00 worth of supplies today. My guy never runs out of anything.

    You know i'm just funnin.

    After this mess, I will start reloading. I can make the time.

    I'm not in a desperate situation now but could certainly be better off and it makes sense to become more self-sufficient in this area.

    And no, I'm not particularly mechanically inclined but if women can do it........

    Yea, I try to learn from my experiences and the experiences of others.

    I recall the primer scare of '93. I recall the Obamanation. So no, this shortage came as no surprise to the Catshooter household. I saw it coming right after King Bush was re-elected (yes I voted for him both times). Of course I thought that it would be Hitlery not some clown named Obama.

    Fool me once . . .

    Don't worry CF, I knew you were funning.

    I love the independance that being able to cast & load gives me. In no way do I do it to save money. I do it so in the middle of the Obamanation if I deceide suddenly that I need three or four hundred rounds of 380 I just make it. 380 was unobtainium/vastly expensive at that time. I never thought I'd reload for it. But circumstances changed, so I fired up the lead pot and went to work.

    Works for me. :)

    I'm glad I stocked up the second week of November, I had a feeling it was going to be like 08, and it's worse! I got a supply of practice ammo for 9 and 223 with the intention of doing lots more practice, but with the current scare, I'm not doing much practicing:crying: Saving it til I can get more, or more components to reload what I have on hand, for a rainy day.

    BTW Remember when you would go to a gun show to look for a good deal? The last couple of years it seem like the place to go if you want to get ripped off! :steamed:

    I went to a local show a few weeks ago and was absolutely appalled at the extortionist pricing some tables were charging, and getting, for bulk ammo. One guy was selling 1000 rd cases of 223 for $1000+ and selling it! The show was so crazy busy there wasn't even room to walk down the isles! I felt like :crying:When this thing blows over (in about a year if last time is any indicator) the people who paid those prices, or bought $2,000 AR's are going to feel a little foolish, but if it doesn't, they will be glad they did panic.

    I sure hope the legislature realizes that if they pass a bunch of new gun legislation, most of them will have to get real jobs after their next election cycle.

    People please. Why is this so difficult?

    I believe the question was, where are you getting TARGET ammo? I certainly have a good supply of SD or duty ammo, but I don't stockpile practice ammo, I, uh, PRACTICE with it. And when I say practice, I don't mean once every 6 months. I mean 2 times a month at LEAST.

    So, once again, are any of you finding PRACTICE ammo, and if so, when you answer the question, can you please actually answer by telling the rest of us the name of the company and if it's online or brick & mortar?

    I see that they charge your card when you place a order for something that is not in stock. They have your money to run the business and you have nothing. A smart consumer would not order anything like that.

    For some reason 22lr is harder to find than 9mm in my area.

    I ordered a couple cases of ammo on 2/2 and have received no notice of backorder or expected shipdate or anything. I actually forgot about it until this thread.


    Going to call Monday and cancel. That's just poor execution.

    I was talking about the 9mm 115g FMJ for $13 (not great but) and the buck OOO for $140 for 250 rds. Mags for $15 on up.
