That I will do!!!

Last year I got caught buying tooling to load for rifles and there was not enough funding to also stock up on components. Now I have the tooling and enough components to experiment with.

When things settle down I will start stocking up.

FWIW; I think bullet sources will rebound a bit sooner than other components. With today's situation, like reloading has jumped exponentially, so has home bullet casters. With the many more home casters the demand on bullet suppliers is somewhat lessened. Maybe? (I haven't reloaded a jacketed bullet in well over a year and cast bullets make up all my handloads)

Ammo is certainly important but donít forget to put back some beans and rice maybe some corn meal, salt, steel cut oats. Easy to store in 5 gal container that keep for a couple decades. Didnít mean to hijack the thread.... now back to bullets powder and primers.

Late 2019 was a pretty low cost time for ammo. Less than 20 cents a round for 9mm ammo, less than 30 cents for 5.56mm. Current prices are about 3x that for loaded ammo. I will heavily cut back shooting before replenishing my supply at more than 30 cents per round of 9mm or 45 cents per round of 5.56. So prices would have to drop in half for me. Good thing
shooting isn’t my only hobby.

But with inflation, I doubt we will ever see those 2019 prices again.

Prices are starting to fall a bit. And things are in stock for more than a minute to two.

Not quite time to stock up, but not as bad as a couple of months ago.
