Default Reloading supplies

Since ammo prices have become stupid, I decided to get into reloading. Now that I am, I CAN'T FIND ANY POWDER! Is anyone else finding that? Also, primers are looking scarce.

Prices should not be changing at all. If they are, tell those people you'll never shop at their store again unless they stop gouging.

Hard to find, yes. But prices should not be changing at all.

So your saying if you order from wholesaler a and the price is this much but they are out. So you call a wholesaler b and there cost is more your price doesnt change ? You wont be in business long like that.

I didn't say I was running a business. Any stores that are charging a higher price than they were a month ago for any ammunition are gouging, plain and simple. Our stock comes right from the manufacturers and their prices have not changed, or ours would have.

From wholesaler and from manufacture are two diffferent things. Wholesalers can and will gouge when possible . Your luck to be employed with someone big enough to order direct.

Please go read a basic Econ 101 book. Then come back to the deep end of the pool.

that's cool and all, my second is in business. You're suggesting he read a book, because he's denouncing use of a system which is known to be unsustainable and destructive to the society/group which practices it? correct?
