    I've had some luck at gun shops with ranges. Seems they put some back for shooting customers

    Wanting to get into reloading, but components of everything aren't available at all. No bullets, no powders, no primers.

    I haven't gone shooting and want to hold onto my limited ammo stores, but I might dig into them to shoot my first IDPA match next month.

    I received 3K of 115GR Bullet Components from Midway 5 weeks ago that were only $10 per K than I had bought elsewhere 5 months ago. Not bad for getting ahead of the curve, but it took me almost an hour on line searching to find them and when I did I pounced on them. Already have pounds of powder and more than 25K of primers most of which were purchased before 2008.

    I bought 100 rounds of 45acp and 100 rounds of 357 from Walmart a couple of days ago. Didn't notice a price increase. I have plenty of ammo, but these days I buy it when I see it.

    Got 1,000 9mm 124gr HBRN, and 500 .357 158gr RNFP from Berry's about 2 wks ago, and just got UPS confirmation on another 1,000 9mm 124gr HBRN coming from TJ Conavera's this Wednesday. It looks like bullets are beginning to free up. Prices seem to be up only about 5% to 8%.

    The items are around, you just have to look for them. I spent all day Wednesday driving around to various gun stores and did well. Picked up 6,000 primers of various sizes, a couple of LCP mags, 45 ACP bullets, 380 bullets and 357 jhp bullets (of which I do not have that gun, but it was a good deal I figured I could trade it for something). I hope things get back to a more normal state!

    I lucked out today! First I went to a gun store a friend told me about - found 9mm ammo, not a great price but not too outrageous. So I bought a box (showed some self restraint and only bought one since the price wasn't great). Then after going to 3-4 different places I called my large local store to see if the Smith & Wesson order came in. They said not yet - check back later or tomorrow. So about 30 min later I see on their Facebook page the S&W's arrived and they had a few Shields in stock. I RAN over there and bought a Shield - well they only currently allow customers to purchase one box of ammo if they buy a gun or go to the range. So I bought a of 9 to go with my Shield. Then I went over to the range to test that baby out and they asked "do you need any ammo?" Why yes I do...was able to buy 1 more box. :) A great day - 3 boxes of ammo and a new Shield!

    I've put off my entry into reloading because of the scarcity of primers and bullets.

    It'll turn around.

    I'm dragging the bottom the barrel here in TX, I have a core supply of ammo that I prefer and am being very judicious on when I use it. Range trips are heavily curtailed and I've been forced to shoot ammo that I wouldn't normally based on limited access. I've said numerous times to myself "I will never buy WWB or Tula again", I have boxes of both at home right now just because I can't get anything else.

    I bought 40 S&W today at Walmart at about 5% more than before the craziness. But they had PLENTY. However, they had hardly anything else. 40 seems abundant and normally priced. That said, my LGS's want $23 per 50 rounds of 9mm (and $750 for a Glock 19, $650 for a 9mm shield, and the list goes on). I won't be shopping at either of them EVER again.
