A  reliable source tells me that Hornady is caught up and will resume production of their full range of ammo and bullets next week and will start to roll back their extended hours of production.
Here's hoping that everyone else will quickly catch up.

I noticed that a popular .224 Hornady bullet became available today after a prolonged absence from a busy online supplier, but the 1000 ea lots are already sold out again.

Powder is hard to find now because people thought  'goberment' was about to do something stupid. Many people are already well stocked, after 10 months or so, of acting on this concern.

This is something different than before, but you know more about it than I do.

I don't know anything.
 I just mde a tour through a number of gun shops in SW OK and bordering TX... the consensus from some number of shops was that no single thing has gotten us to the place we are now, but a whole lot of little things have, almost all, based on concerns that government (this administration) is going to do something rash. POTUS did announce a week or so ago that he "wasn't going to wait for congress" to enact new gun control legislation, but is going to enact new rules through executive branch bureaucracy.

On the positive side, I saw every kind of powder, primer and bullet available to buy, though just not at the same place.
One thing is certain- the BATF is all over gun shops in the US... I was told that over 1100 gun shops are under duress, losing their licenses, huge fines, banned from selling guns, etc. for the smallest kind of paperwork glitch.

the government is doing something NOW but the big hit will be after the 2014 elections and all the stops for the lame duck will be gone.


lets hope that 2 million man biker protest shows up at DC to counter the 1 million muxlum march planned for sep 11th!


i am seeing a little more ammo. but is is still insanely expensive.

reloading supplies about the same thing.

the time to buy it cheap and stack it deep is long gone.

now its time to pick up what you can get and afford in ammo--if you can find any!
