I think it's starting to get better, but we are nowhere near pre frenzy levels. My guess is we should back to almost normal levels by mid summer.
I seriously doubt it - we have added millions of new gun owners (demanding ammo) and thousands of new reloaders (demanding components), coupled with high volume purchases by the Government

Supply won't catch demand for quite some time - then factor in the demand for raw materials from overseas, and the outlook gets even more grim

It's Crazy! 9mm dies $$$

That's crazy pricing for dies. I picked up a set of Lee Carbide .32 ACP dies at Kittery Trading Post for $31.99 a few weeks ago, and a set of the same dies in 9mm for the same price a week before that.

I found a fellow member needing 9mm dies. I sold them for under the retail amount even though the member received an extra sizer die and decapping pins. I'm not tooting my own horn. All I'm saying is I had an extra set and just couldn't bring myself to mimic the business practices happening today. The gun community had treated me very well overall. I'm going to continue to help my fellow 2A supporter in the spirit I believe the culture should be.

YEP! That's what I'm, talking about. I think we may be in the minority however...

What matters in the end though is that at least we are trying to set an example and we still respect ourselves.

Don't be a HATER Shane - it does not look good on you!

Seriously though, if you use FB, check to see if there are some local BUY/SELL/TRADE groups in YOUR area. You may be pleasantly surprised with what you find - I was...

Today, .223 ammo had dropped from $49.95 a box to $32.95 for 50 rounds at a local shop, so something is happening with prices.

It's not gouging, it's capitalism.
