They haven't loosened up here at all. I keep hearing it's gotten better but I still can't find any 45s, 9mm, 38, 357, 380 is a joke, 32, 25, even 22s are hit and miss. Some rifle rounds are slim too. Dicks and Gander Mountain have some stuff but they're pround of it. I'm just glad I got into reloading before this whole mess started and stocked up when things were still cheap.

Things are starting to get better in my part of the country. The Bass Pro has most pistol and rifle rounds in stock. You are limited to 5 boxes per visit, but they have it. I even picked up 150 rounds of 380 there last week, and that was the first time I have been able to get that since Jan.

22lr is the only thing wallyworld seems to have with any regularity around here. But now they have a sign up limiting you to 1 box of any 1 caliber but the shelf is pretty bare so wtf do they need the limitation for if they don't even have 1 box of any of the popular calibers.

not really a tip but when I go and the price now on ammo its just crazy.since I cast my own bullets I can load a box of 44 mag/45 colt for 3.00 a box.

I load both with 9.0 grs unique

powder 1.28

primers 1.60

bullets free

brass free
--------------
$2.88 per box of 50 isn't bad.

The only drawback I see in reloading is crawling around on the floor (or ground) fighting other folks to pick up brass. I get a chuckle at times watching folks argue over whos brass it was...

I would reload for sure, but I am time and space-challenged right now, so it's not practical for me.
