Good explanation, Tubby. Reminds me of the part of Econ 101 I managed not to sleep through. :biggrin2:
I am not pleased about the higher ammunition prices, but I will repeat what I have said in other threads: if the ammo keeps disappearing off the shelves at the higher prices, it is not gouging; it is simply supply and demand. I started reloading this year and it is paying off; I can even keep myself in components as long as I am willing to accept a 6–8 week lead time in most component orders.
