If you're referring to me, I don't feel shortchanged or threatened. I currently feel prepared. I didn't start reloading until a couple months ago and could have faced the same problems of shortages. Luckily, one of my LGSs is huge into reloading and is also prepared. I could go in tomorrow and buy 20,000 primers/50,000 lead cast bullets and probably somewhere around 50,000 plated bullets. That's about what he has in stock and he has been doing it for so long that he has his supply pipeline in place.
The 5,000 more will be when supply levels return to normal and I can lay in my stash. Maybe I'll keep them right near my food, water, silver, gold, guns and other prepping stuff. Don't want to get caught with my pants down.
