I read that same article and my first thought was that I definitely had to get some. Of course the problem is that a lot of other people must have had the same thought. I normally buy my reloading supplies from Graf or Powder Valley. I spoke with Graf yesterday and they expect to receive a shipment anytime now - it's overdue. They have 3,400 lbs on order.
"Hello Santa - Could you please bring me 3 or 4 pounds of RE17 for Christmas. What do mean you don't have a hazmat license? Holy Sh@#, I already paid for all of the other crap - can't I at least get one pound? Okay, okay ... But you have to bring the Barbie Jammin' Jeep or my daughter will never let me hear the end of it."
