Availability of components?
I have been kicking around the idea of reloading for a while now. Part of it is due to the rising cost of ammunition and the realization that I can shoot much more for the same cost. The other part is my continuing frustration at not being able to find the ammo that I want to shoot (i.e. the current state of .223 ammo, where I recently saw some on the shelf locally for $1000 per case).
My question is this: are the components (mainly thinking of bullets, powder & primers) just as hard to find as factory ammo? I have been trying to find primers and bullets for both .223 and 9mm and think reloading may not solve the second part of my equation.
