Componets getting scarce

nearly impossible to find most bullets for popular calibers off-the-shelf or without a significant backorder. primers come and go nearly immediately, so either you get lucky or on backorder.

powder is scarce too in really in demand powder varieties. i've been backordered for titegroup for nearly two months now.

i have a ton of things on backorder or waiting to be shipped. I have 10k primers that i don't really need coming that i'm going to sell locally for what i have into them (I was able to get some since I ordered these, and unfortunately I wasn't able to cancel my order). that should help a couple folks in this area.

i hope all my stuff doesn't come in at one time... my wife is going to get suspicious, LOL.

What? Me worry?

Some people call free market pricing 'gouging'.

I call it free market capitialism.

No, I dont' like it when things I want go way up in price, but I realize it is due to massive demand for far to few of what it is people want.

That is how free markets must work if they are free, anything else is socialism and communism.

I suppose anyone older than 45 years of age knows how bad it was in Soviet Russia during the communist rule there. Look up bread lines or

something on Google. They loved price fixing and central authority. In our case the current dilemma is just far too many paniced buyers and

not enough makers. Differ situation but a FREE MARKET has room to move and adjust. If we give it time to work.

If I dont' like the prices. I don't buy. I can wait.

Sorry for the near rant. Time to get a drink.

All I can do is ration what I have... hard to do when your competing damn near every weekend. I stock up where I can and when I can. Right now on the waiting/backorder list for bullets, primers and powder. I do know that if I'm desperate that I can drive to 30 minutes to a local bullet manufacturer and get a supply of cast lead. I say desperate because I try not to shoot cast lead that often. Just my personal preference
