Demand has doubled. Supply has not
seems like this is becoming a cycle. The old argument against increasing production capacity that ďthis is temporaryĒ isnít really holding water any more.

I will say that in the past ammo panics, hunting rifle ammo and shot shells were never been hard to find.  It was all pistol/ar/22lr related stuff. Now all I can find for reloading is target bullets. Go figureÖ
Completely agree.   Production is going to have to double if not more to catch up.  Thatís expensive and as companies try to catch up qc issues will arise as many have seen already. 

I think a lot of these companies are just hoping to catch up like they have in years past.  I donít see that happening. 
Itís going to take a lot more equipment and labor to match todayís markets, thatís going to mean price increases as well as possible qc issues as production gets ramped up
I've definitely noticed price increase,even with hornady ,which is about all you find reliable these days.
I will give hornady that,they didn't throw reloader under the bus. And I have been trying to send money there way just cause of that.
Iím not a huge fan of hornady but from what Iíve seen they definitely have a bunch of red boxes on the shelves when Iím at the lgs.  Have not seen any other company with as good of supply.   Too bad they donít make powder and primers.

7mm/.284 is so popular. I think the 7mm-08 is really taking off right now. Folks are finally figuring out how awesome the 7mm-08 is. I do think there is a shift away from the super mags, with the help of the popularity of the 6.5 manbun. This popularity has really boosted the 7mm-08. I hear ya, I rarely see 7mm bullets on store shelves. I have been wanting to try the Sierra tipped game king. Wonder if it is as good as an Accubond?

I can find 7mm bullets for the 7mm-08 ,yesterday alone at different stores seen 120 grain BT, And some 145 hot cor that would be perfect.
I can't use the light weight bullets in my 7 mag.
They already blow apart in the 150-160 range.
So I refuse to use lighter ones.
I was looking at some yesterday.
Two old farts walked up.....
One old guy was like...They have lots of bullets.
Other old guy was like...I don't want those hornady,I buy those anytime,there always on the shelf.

Nosler has thrown us under the bus.
I have a feeling as inflation goes up,demand will go down,and we will start seeing more components on shelf.
It's like I seen some brass ,sweet Jesus 100 dollars for 50 pcs of brass it's nuts.

Does anybody remember those factory second bullets from midway?
That looked like this.
Man those where the days,when you could get cheap bullets.

 Iíve never had a issue shooting 140 Partitions out of mine, what do you mean ďblow apartĒ?
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I mean when you hit 3000+ velocity
I'm not shooting 120 grain BT out my rifle ,unless it's for varmint hunting.
120 grain BT I could push that to 3400 easy without even filling the case with powder.
140 like you mention about 3200 fps
If you use a heavy bullet ,it just makes more sense that's there is more bullet there. Cause they get longer as you go up in grain. Partition and accubond are the most expensive,and hard to find.
So to combat that ,I just step up to 150-160 ,slow my velocity down to right around 3000,and just throw an SST,BT,or any traditional cup and core bullet in there. That shoots good in my gun. Then I don't have to fight the the masses or pay the price for accubond or partitions.
But at the same time if I drop grain to much,then you'll get an explosive,blow apart bullet, for flat shooting,and to stretch out a little further shot ,I still want to be right around 3000 fps.
Not sure if any of that makes sense,but that's just how I'm doing it to avoid accubond or partitions,not to say if they where available I might buy them,but I've already started loading without them with decent results.

I saved my old IMR tin cans (why, I don't know) and some of them have price tags as low as $8.95.  I have an old box of CCI primers that were $9.95.  And yes, qty 1000.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

I just came here to complain about Shooter's Pro Shop changing their website.  It was OK before but it really sucks now.  Can't even filter by "in stock."  Worthless!
you can still get gas in heaven, and a drink in kingdom come,
in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun
