    Powder Shortage!

    Is there going to be reloading shortages, in light of recent talk of gun control in America ?

    Already the case. And not just powder but brass, primers and .22RF ammunition.

    Getting most supplies from USA has been difficult for years now! Panic buying and stockpiling on both sides of the water. I'm sure many of us on here are guilty of it, self included!
    If there was ever a time for the European reloading market to grow, it is surely now - especially if you can produce lead free bullets.

    Panic! Run to your local shop and buy all that you can! Having to fill out a BATF form 4473 and have a back ground check if you buy a gun at a gun show -something an American has to do right now anyhow- is going to cause MASSIVE powder shortages in the US and the UK!! Run! Panic!! (Oh! The Humanity of it All!!)

    I got tired of picking up .22LR piece meal -a brick here, a brick there- so I put in a bulk order last week. One million rounds (200 cases) of standard velocity will be delivered a week from Monday. How long do you think it will take me to go through it???~Muir

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.
