I stopped in my LGS last night to pick up a few items and was shocked............the shelves were bare !!!!!!!!!!!!
This place managed to keep some inventory during the Obama error but the only supplies they had were 6 lbs of W760 that came in yesterday
ZERO primers of any kind and one box of Barnes 338 cal bullets, sure glad I did my hoarding years ago !!!!!!!!!
Can't believe it's this bad and the Biden/Harris error hasn't even begun shocked


along the same lines, it just might be Graf. the sons are not there

I bought a couple pounds of IMR 4227 yesterday at an LGS. Great cast bullet powder in nearly every case from the tiny 22s to the big 45s. Had a long talk with the owner about his conversation with his Vista Outdoors rep. If anyone is interested, I'll elaborate.

Yes, please do.

Vista's rep told the LGS owner that when they bought Remington and were taking a tour through the plants, they realized how big a schitshow Remington had been running for a long time. The ammo plant has had to be completely re-tooled from top to bottom. It was all worn out. The rep said that they couldn't believe the Remington ammo would even meet SAAMI specs consistently. So they've been busting their asses to get Remington ammo back in production to Vista's standards, with a substantial price increase coming.

The worst news is that Remington's primer factory was nearly a complete loss. They are literally having to start from scratch there, since nothing was even salvageable. In the mean time, Federal and CCI primers will be used in Remington factory ammo, for at least six and more like nine months. So primers from Federal and CCI are going to be pretty much unobtainable as well as Remington primers for at least the next year. It's second-hand information to me, and third-hand to you, but that's the story I got.

Yeah, Marlin ammo was unavailable for a long time, and I hated not being able to get their components, either.

Ok, here’s a real kick in the pants for you to ponder. What if they adopt a position like the EU did back in 2015. No primers or powder can be sold if it contains 1 or 2 chemicals that produce toxic gasses. Only Green powder and primers. 50-60% of the powders now available banned.

I'm actually expecting something like that. Their "gun grabbing" has not worked, even with all of the fake events and endless propaganda, so the next step is to make guns pointless by getting rid of the ammo, or making it so scarce that it is a luxury item.

I fully expect that Biden/Harris will use the EPA as a weapon. Also afraid they are going to ban the use of toxic ammunition on all federal lands. Was conversing with some Brits about the time that went into effect. The European powder companies were safe but the price went up 50% and I seem to recall that it was already 50-60 bucks a lb. Varget that was left in country for sale went over 200 overnight.

The most hysterical laughter I ever heard came out of my computer.....
