Where were people when Cabelas was selling all four varieties of S&B primers for 2 cents each, only 8 Edit: 6 years ago ?
100,000 primers lasts a very long time, I can tell ya.

Yep these are times we prep for. After 2012 I've been stacking it deep for just this situation.

Whenever reading threads like this, I can't help but wonder if the time has finally been reached where experimentation with Boxer primers (for those that still have some) and modified Berdan brass casings, is a worthwhile combination to pursue? I've never tried my hand at this, but I've read where some folks have successfully done it. If I were to try it, most likely 6.5 x 55 would be my first candidate. Anyone here ever perform this Berdan-to-Boxer case-modificatiion and found that the effort was successful, worthwhile, and gratifying?

I have watched a few videos on it and it's a lot of work.

I think if you want to shoot 6.5 the cheapest way is to buy the wood bullet practice rounds, remove the bullet and powder and reinsert powder and bullet. I have done that and it's fairly easy.

Last time I went target shooting was last june. Ammo is too expensive and my salary decreased.

I went hunting the last dove seadon because I had ammo I bought years ago.

Why?

The last shortage lasted some 5 years (2013 to 2018).

Depends on the product, I guess;

Checking my ammo / components purchase spreadsheet:
  • Bulk .22LR becoming available in quantity in 2016, price coming down in 2017, dirt cheap in 2018 (CCI SV @ MidWayUSA $250 shipped, GECO Bolt @ TS-USA $205 shipped)
  • Shotshells: very inexpensive in 2015
  • Components: Hornady bullets (entire line), very inexpensive in 2016; S&B primers dirt cheap in 2016 (S&B 2 cents each @ Cabelas)
  • Centerfire pistol: very inexpensive in 2015; dirt-cheap in 2016: 9mm & 45ACP @ $10-$12 per box, shipped
  • Centerfire rifle: very inexpensive in 2016
