    LR primers, and maybe a keg of 748 for cast .405 WCF's... I'm sitting pretty good for handgun stuff.

    BEER! Was there a shortage of beer? Nobody told me! I must go out and buy a truck load immediately! PS-------I DON'T DRINK!:uhoh:

    Actually I too was fairly prepared after the 89 thing, but I messed up and got hooked on 45 ACP right in the middle of this and all my worries began! I can't seem get my hands on a single grain of Bulls Eye!!!!! So I had to resort to Unique, Red Dot, Win 231, AA#5, Clays, ------

    I had a friend who has a 14 oz. can of BE in the old metal can still sealed. He ask me if it was any good since it had floated around in the shop in the last hurricane. I told him definitely not and to give give it to me to properly dispose of -------I've yet to see it------some froend!:mad:

    He obviously has no concern for his own safety! LOL

    Right now gas has gone to $3.65/gal. When it goes back to $3.04 like it was a while back, I'm going to stock up!
    Reloading components and 22 ammo, I'm good to go.

    55grs, primers, powder and if brassman ever gets more .223 in, a whole bunch of that. the only person who is happy about the supplies drying up is my mail lady. she was tired of trying to pick up those"if it fits it ships" boxes.

    Yea, I think my ups guy is glad I can't get bullets right now. When things loosen up, "I'll get even".

    I'm good on everything else right now and I still have a few thousand each of the bullets I shoot the most, I just don't like not being able to order them when I want to and I've had to scale my shooting way back to make them last.

    I can buy powder right off the shelves around here so it's not a problem but I still usually keep, and the key word here is, "Several" pounds of it here, and still have 10 to 15k of spp around here also. Always do.

    I also will get a few bricks of 22 rimfire.

    About a month ago the Gander Mountain store in my area got in 5 million rounds of 22s and they were gone in 1.5 hours. Who shoots 22s that much?

    they'll show up at the next gun show for four times what they paid for them, and they will still have them when I leave.

    I'll slowly restock on the things that I'm using up now. I will wait until the prices return to normal, and let the guys that really need supplies hit it first. I was fairly well stocked, as this was not my first "crunch".
    To answer the question, 4831, Varget, 231, a few thousand primers and bullets. I saw this coming with ammo and components, even AR's and mags, but the tooling/die shortage was a little surprise. Lightman

    9mm and 40 S&W Rainier bullets. It never occurred to me they'd be unavailable for more than a couple of weeks and I only have a few hundred rounds. That's put an end to my IDPA Saturdays.
