I thought the panic buying was only for ammo and reloading components, not reloading dies. What gives?
Demand for dies should primarily be a function of the sales of presses (yes, there are surely other factors). It seems that everything related to reloading is currently subject to shortages.

Cabela's - Out of Stock
Graf & Sons - Out of Stock
Midsouth Shooter's Supply - Out of Stock
Midway - Out of Stock

What Gives:
My local Cabela's has 45colt dies everyday. I just bought 45acp a few weeks ago and seen them last week when I went to get some camo for hunting this year.

Cabelas and Sportsmans warehouse up here has all kinds of dies, just the 223 and 9mm dies are still off the shelf, as well as neck size only dies are nill. I did get lucky and get 4 pounds of 2400 powder for my 44 mags though. Whoot! Whoot!
