    It's been 10 months now !!!

    Ten months since the second crunch making reloading supplies very difficult to find began. First one came in 2008 and second in 2012. My gun club makes large purchases of powder and primers and sells them at cost to members. After 10 months, they finally received some primers, and a box of WW Small Pistol Primers cost. $47 per thousand. Double what they cost last year!

    When is this going to end???

    Hopefully, there are two ending dates...November 2014 (semi end to this foolishness) & Jan 2017 (competition of foolishness).

    Components have been hit or miss around here but the highest I have paid for primers is $41 and I have been hesitant at that price. Heck about a month ago I was able to buy CCI primers for $24.99/thousand. Powder is running about $25-$26/pound. I hope things get better in your area.

    Panic buying and the companies keeping the stock on the shelf a little short is the cause. Why sell something for x when you can sell it for x * 50%?
