Guns: You can't reload without components
Reloaders, at least in my experience, are not immune to scarcity. They're insulated, sure, since you can stockpile bullets, primers, and powder for less money and in less space than stockpiling loaded ammo. But you still need components, and for some time now there's been a shortfall, as the recent panic over the DoD's stance over previously fired brass shows. In my local sphere, the results of the ammo crunch have been stark, to say the least.
Stopping by the Gander Mountain in Ocala was like stepping into a post-apocalyptic zombie movie. The powder shelves were picked clean, with only a few odd canisters of Red Dot lingering. There were literally ZERO metallic cartridge primers left for sale - only a dozen boxes of shotshell primers. Even the bullet shelf was a bit bare, which is suprising considering that most reloaders get their bullets shipped directly to them in bulk.
Even outside north central Florida, it seems like reloading stuff is in short supply. When I searched for Lee carbide 9mm dies, I discovered that most of the usual suspects (Midway, Widener's, etc.) were out of stock. .223 rifle bullets are also starting to get a little hard to find, perhaps the result of all those new AR owners stockinng up. Buy it while you can, I guess.
