What a difference 5 years makes.

 

From 80$ per # on GB to the new concern....stock sitting on shelves gathering dust.

 

I get an email a week from PV begging me to buy something.  I'm still sitting on the pounds I was able to snipe in about February 2013.

 

So since I can get whatever I want, what is the premier sought after components?

I still have problems getting SPP for the better brands. .22lr prices are still high.

I don't know much about .22 but these seems pretty good?

I bought 20k rounds of 22 from targetsports usa over the winter. .04/round  and I got a 20% rebate on top of it.

Always keep a large supply of primers, they are the first to go when a scare arises. The Obama years were obviously rough on all fronts but if you remember - the first to go were primers, just like the Clinton years.

Stock up on primers before the government requires the manufacturers to put that "stuff" in them that makes them go bad after a period of time.

This is the wisdom someone at the range imparted me with in the early 2000s when I started reloading.

I gotta say to some, I told you so.  I fucking told you so. 

 

Looking around seeing these ass clowns buying primers for 150 per K, 8# of Bullseye for $350.  You are the problem.  And you'll be selling it for pennies what you paid next year at a garage sale.

 

When I posted this a mere 18 months ago it was after months and months of emails and ads to please buy .22,  primers and power.  Shat. I recall a 5000 "bucket" of .22 for something like .03 cents a round.  One could buy 9mm for 115 per K.  I also got a kick out of the clowns trying to dump what they bought during the panic on local forums....watching the prices fall. 

 

What I didn't see was the run on coated lead bullets.  SNS, Blue et. al.  Always seemed like if they got a bunch of orders they could just work the weekend or something.

 

Still sad to see nothing can revitalize this place. Too many trolls.  Not even a range officer getting kilt could do it.
