I'm with you Hoss. I have not been shooting centerfire handguns at all lately. I have been reloading and sticking them away. Been doing some rifle shooting and reloadin those, but that may soon be curtailed as well.
Hopefully I don't run out of components. My local resource is out and said he has had small rifle primers on order for over 3 weeks, but none have come in. He said to me jokingly, "If I order you some today, I should be able to get them in by the end of the Obama administration."
The worst I have seen so far is yesterday, I saw a box of Remington 38spl +p 158 gr lswchp for IIRC $32.50 for a 50 rnd box.. I bought the same stuff at Cabelas (always high priced there, but on sale then) a year ago for just over $15.00
It's ridiculous. The set of dies I want is list price at Cabelas and Midway for about $23 bucks. Out of stock since Christmas, selling on ebay for over $50.
I'll just wait it out. I aint paying double if I don't have to, and I've got enough set aside to outlast me if you really get down to it. It's a shame it has come to this though. At first it was an interesting anomoly, but now it has become ridiculously frustrating.
