Lee Loaders in 357/38 in stock anywhere?

This crazy panic has EVERYTHING out of stock EVERYWHERE! Anywho, I'm looking really hard for a lee classic loader in 38 or 357. Anyone seen any of them in stock anywhere?

This one doesn't say "out of stock", so it may be available.
You will need some accessories of course for it.
I have this press, have used it for all my calibers for several years now.
Has performed well for me, although I do not use it as a progressive press,
it just didn't give me the quality control I want. I load each die in batches,
running out 50-100 rounds at a time.
I can't believe how scarce they have become, and the pricing. Everyone wants into reloading due to the ammo shortage, and sky high prices.
I'm glad I have 10K rounds loaded on my shelves, keeps me going to the range every week without breaking the bank.

ShootingNut I think the OP meant the Classic Loader. AKA "Whack-a-Mole" one you use with a mallet. The Lee Loader uses a mallet. The Lee LoadAll is the progressive.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

Hmmm, just "whack the lead in", guess I'm just not up on the
latest equipment.
