    Man if it is like oil, it will go thru the roof, a while back there was a "threat" on a oil pipeline in the middle east, and oil prices went up..
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    If brass experiences a shortage, there is always the possibility of buyback or tradein schemes for used brass recycling. It might get more expensive for awhile but in the long run market pressure will even things out, either at the ammunition manufacturer level (with buybacks/recycling) or at the raw material level.
