The last panics/shortages didn't affect reloaders as much as the present situation. With the huge influx of new reloaders (mainly because there is no more ammo available due to unprepared panicking) everything reloading related is in short supply. Mainly because of the new swamp members and their very vocal anti-2nd Amendment stance, equipment, tools and components are very difficult to find (I even looked for 22 cal. airgun pellets locally, none to be found). Adding covid to the equation also affects the raw material supplies to the component manufacturers; if the primer makers can't get copper or brass and the chemicals are in short supply, reloaders aren't going to find any primers (and when they do hit the shelves the gluttons buy everything in sight.)...

I disagree. The last time this happened (2013 - 2016), reloading supplies WERE in short supply.

I had powder and bullets backorders take more than 1 year to fill. I would get shipments that I had forgotten I had ordered.

I was not buying primers, so not sure the status of them.

But people were looking for alternative powders as they could not get their normal ones.

Considering that the bill which allegedly has the most public support (universal background checks) can't even get to a vote in the US Senate I'm not too concerned about anything happening on the federal level.

Not gonna' happen no matter what or what fails. It's far different this time and gun laws only have a minor role in the hoarding craze.
