    Went to Cabela's and Varget down to $22.50/pound and 75 gr Hornady .224 bullets $14.00/100. That's $2.50 lower for powder, $3.00 lower for bullets.
    Primers down a buck/1000.
    Still a ways to go though !

    primers here are $30/1000, rl-15 is 21.99/pound, hornady 75 bthp's are $16.99/100 and hornady 165 btsp (30 cal) are $24.99... prices here are elevated on some stuff, some stuff has come down, which shocked me. most things are available to me without looking too hard. a few very specific bullets are still tight, but hoping the pipeline is completely full within the next 6-8 weeks or so...

    I just got back from Cabelas as well. Bought Barnes TSX bullets that cost me about $35 in February. They were now $30.99, plus all brass and bullets were 20% off. And I picked up a $5 a box rebate form for Barnes bullets earlier at a different store. Comes out to $19.99 a box. That's a heck of a lot better than February!:)

    The panic buyer/hoarders have filled their shelves, closets and garages so things are beginning to back up in the supply chain. It's likely component prices will drop to near "normal" in a few more months. Especially if the present majority power brokers in DC get kicked out in November.

    I want your prices! Pounds of rifle powder are still running $26-29, primers are $35-45/1k. I buy my bullets in 1000-piece lots online, as nobody locally has either the quantity or pricing to make it worth asking. But I did see a 4-lb jug of Power Pistol for $70 the other day, which I didn't think was outrageous. Maybe things are skewed here?

    On a side note, after the prices and availability I was quoted locally for 8-lb jugs of Varget (and the last one I saw for-sell was $230!), I laughed while out at Camp Perry when I could get all I wanted for $130/8-lb, only $20 more than 5 years ago. :evil:

    Once the prices start to fall (just look at $18 for 1000 Wolf primers at Wideners), there may be panic selling by those who hoarded pallet/garage/warehouse full of supplies further driving the price down at gun shows - which will only be reflected by national online vendors.

    I am all smiles here and look forward to buying more reloading components at pre-price gouging days. Hooah! :D

    I buy Varget for $18.50 and primers are about $28/k. Speaking of that tomorrow is pay day. Maybe I should pick up some more.:evil:

    Today was payday for me! Just back from Gander, 1000 SPM, Federal, 1000 SP, CCI, $32 each. Which ain't bad for here, really.

    Buy what you gotta, but so long as people keep paying the jacked-up prices they sure won't come back down.
