Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I know the Hazmat fee feels a bit stiff, but my circle of hand loaders has just done a "group buy" of sorts so it gets spread around.
MidwayUSA has a fairly good supply of AA and others. Well, they did a few days ago.
My problem is primers. I feel I have plenty of powder, probably too much, but it's no good without primers which NOBODY seems to have. I did manager to get 5k Federal Large Pistol from Powder Valley a couple of months ago but currently I'm back-ordered at Cabelas for who knows how long. And Cabelas seems to be the only site allowing primer back-orders.
I'm just thankful I cast most of my bullets and have some lead alloy socked away. But even cheap lead in the form of wheel weights is drying up...very hard to find. I can buy alloy online but that would make my own bullets only 1-2 cents per bullet cheaper than commercial hard cast bullets. I'm used to at least a 5 cent difference per bullet.
Forgive the pun, but I just might bite the bullet and buy a couple hundred pounds of hardball alloy. It too might start disappearing.
10mm; when you care enough to send the very best.
