    Its nice to see even through all this shortage that some shop owners aren't gouging their customers.

    Went to the local reloading shop last night and he had Hornady 55gr FMj w/ cannelure, 500rds for $42.50. I picked up 1500.

    He also had 60gr v-max for $17.50/100

    He had 3 pounds of bullseye @ 17.50 per pound.

    I also picked up a 8lb jug of Varget for $156 a month ago.

    Hope this panic stops here shortly so I can actually walk into the shop and see the shelves full again, the downside to his good prices is he has nothing in stock half the time and when he does its gone in hours if its a really hot item. He had 12,000 55gr fmj on Sat and last night he had 2500 left.

    Nice to see, one local shop is soaking guys for 32.95 a pound for any powder he can get. He has some 50 Ballistic tips for 25.95/100.

    Well I posted this awhile back about how my local reloading supplier kept his prices at what they were before the panic and once again he came through for us.



    I got word that he had some titegroup in stock and also ALL primers. I went over and bought 1 pound of titegroup for $15 and my brother bought 5 boxes of loaded 180gr .40. As we were getting ready to leave town my brother says to me "I should have bought that keg of titegroup" I looked at him with a blank stare and said what keg, "He had a 8lb keg sitting there, you didnt see it?? Turn around I'm going to buy it" So my brother ended up buying 8lbs of titegroup for $116.

    I will not do business anywhere else!!!!!

    The lgs here is charging $4.99/100 or $49.99 per thousand primers and 30.00 a pound for any flavor of powder.

    I can order online, pay hazmat and save money.

    Only if someone pays it. Even then it's not really theft--it's either the desperate act of an unprepared reloader or just plain [non-high-road adjective].

    I paid it. If I only have 1000 9mm rounds that are .05¢ more, I'm fine with that.

    You may be fine with that but the rest of us have to suffer because of acts like that. The reloaders who are willing to pay highly inflated prices cause the prices to stay that high and that hurt everyone.
    Well there you go, hard to argue with!

    Its the price you pay to still be able to go to the store and get primers.

    These "dont pay that price or we'll all have to pay that" posts really get on my nerves. It is what it is right now. And im sure someones gonna say these people that keep paying these prices get on your nerves but geez. The man's 9's only went up a nickel. Also, you never know what folks have or dont have, stockpiled. Ive only been shooting for a few months so you can imagine that my "stash", or lack thereof could use some help. Im sure the dont pay (market, by the way) price have bookoos of stock.

    The worst I've seen is on of my local shops. Initially, he was asking ~$34/1k for all primers. Went back a few day later to grab a brick and he had split the bricks up and was asking $11/100. Needless to say, I don't see myself going back there...

    No such luck here. $40-$45 for 1000 primers of any flavor. Powders are $29 / lb and up. Can't find IMR-4064, 4895 or Varget at all. All of the IMR offerings are $35 and up except 700-X, which we paid $29 for a 14 oz can when you can find it.

    We only have 2.5 local shops. One is in town, the others in neighboring towns.

    They still are not going to starve to death. I ordered some bullets from Hornady last year and the big box of 6000 55 g FMJ's cost $365 or almost $61/1000.
