If you only look at the major 3 public facilities that everyone uses, and refuse to use components other than what you think you've used for the past 40 years. Then I'm afraid, yes, you may be waiting for a spell.

If you remember what we reloaders have always been, which is crafty, curious, and resourceful folks always looking to test and learn and try.
The you'll happen across a ton of components for sale, at non-stupid prices.

Not one to be captured by the "brand that's true" sirens song, I bought a few 8# kegs of powder they would otherwise try and sell. Bought laid in, for less than $15/#.

Cheers

Guys, you have to stop thinking of components as some holy grail nonsense.
When times are tight because stupid people suddenly think taking medical advice from a politician is a wise life choice...

Buy bullet weights, not just the brand that pappy used. Buy powder for a 358, not just RL-22.




Jim, whatever you do....don't buy in-stock bullets at Graf's.

Cheers

I am one to allow the free market take care of things like prices. I also feel that those places that are excessively gouging the general public, won't get my business in the future.
