I hear ya. I'm not out of everything yet, I just don't want to get to that point. I just don't have a clue on where to buy supplies in El Paso yet. I am new here, from Phoenix. I need mostly small pistol primers and powder. I am lucky that I have more once fired brass then most people can imagine. ( probably over 100k )Given the current supply situation, buy supplies almost anywhere you find 'em - they're not easy to come by! I'm sitting on 20k pistol primers, with another 15k on order since March. Needless to say, everyone is after me to sell 'em "a few". Those that are into reloading understand when I say "no" - those that don't aren't really friends.
A lot of the 'net sites are declining to accept any more backorders. I've been TOLD that they're starting to catch up, but don't see it yet. See lots of folks paying rediculous prices on primers at the various auction sites! Fortunately, I remembered what it was like when Clinton was in office, and stocked up before it got too crazy.
What's wierd is that even the bullets are hard to get - I've got 15k hard cast of various calibers on order from Mastercast, and after 60 days, they're finally fixin' to ship about 8k of 'em to me. They say they're so backed up it ain't even funny - they said it'll be another coupla months before they can get to my 380's I've ordered!
