If they have no stock, how can anybody be buying the stuff? Are they filling orders for our ever-popular government that are being ordered specifically to take the products off the market?
The problem isn't with the reloader's,it's the factory ammo shortage that's causing a shortage in the reloading supply chain.
A large majority of Primers/Powder/Brass/Bullets are being used to try and produce factory ammo,so there's a lot less being offered to the dealers of Reloading supplies.
Powder Valley is very behind,and chances are if you see an item in stock when you order it,by the time they get to your order,it is out of stock.
I placed an order for 5 different powders that were in stock when I ordered,but when they got to my order,they only had 1 type in stock,and only 1 type of primers that I ordered.
If you placed an order right now with them,it would be July 24th before they would get to your order.They are filling orders for June 23rd right now!

I know how you feel! My local supplier has raised his prices up so much that I cussed him out.He has forever lost my business!
8 lb of H414 = $200
Primers = $50 per 1k
I'm in no need for anything at the present time,so I can wait this deal out for several years if I have to,but I will never purchase another item from anyone that takes advantage of the situation with their longtime customers.
