    Well, I guess that current events being what they are, I can no longer get along with buying 100 or 200 bullets at a time.

    I just put in for backordered bullets to get me through the summer highpower season and maybe enough to hold me over into part of next year. I also backordered 2 bricks of federal match .22 ammo that is the only thing that runs in my bullseye pistol.

    I'm $577.10 poorer now. I didn't even order any powder or primers. I have about 4 pounds of rifle powder left. I have plenty of primers to get through the year. It's going to be a long summer.

    Bummer.

    That Federal Match 22 is very expensive. Have you tried the Wolf Target or Wolf Match? They shoot well in a couple of mine and are a little cheaper.

    Eley sport feeds. Haven't tried Wolf. Before the shortage there wasn't much need to try other stuff. Might have to try it.

    Priming is my big issue. Only the match stuff is 100% anymore.

    I got 1500 Match Kings and threw in the 2 bricks of .22 as an afterthought.

    I already have a few 1000 from MBC under the bench, but I shoot pistol all winter and rifle all summer. I wish I could shoot cast lead loads for highpower matches. It would save me hundreds of dollars.

    Yep, I figured I could cancel it if it doesn't show up before the end of the panic, and I might as well start waiting. It also looks like they have the 168s in stock, but I bet they just stopped updating their website.
