Another Odd Shortage

While looking for 30-06 reloading dies I discovered that most brands are sold out and new and used dies on eBay are about double the price. One Lee factory crimp die I was watching sold for $60, plus $10 for shipping, that's a 400% increase. I imagine the situation is the same with other popular calibers.

And bullet casting molds, pots and accessories. Plain lead has gone from around $2 lb to $4 or higher.

Yeah it's been this way since about September-ish. Been getting worse and worse. This will take a long time to shake out and correct. Prices will be inflated for years I'm afraid.

Judging by our political unrest, I suspect this to be a permanent thing this time.

Welcome to the new now !
Most bullets and some powders are starting to show up , primers are few if any , it depends on your location . Much of the reloading equipment ( presses & dies ) got snapped up starting the middle of last year .
Hopefully Better Days are coming!
