    I haven't done much centerfire reloading. I spent a couple hours looking for 357 cal 200 gr cast, 158 JSP, 44cal 300 grain cast and 9mm JSP with the case that fragments leaving the lead core intact. I was unable to find any of them. I was hoping to order from a business similar to Brownells or Midway so I avoid extra shipping charges. Are shortages common with Brownells and Midway? All they seemed to have in stock were hollow points.

    Yes, shortages are common right now on most reloading components, AR parts, popular ammo, etc. Sign up to have the vendor notify by e-mail, text, etc. when the stuff you want is available.

    It's hard even to keep an ffl stocked right now.

    Oh well, I would have rather spent the money on components. But I ended buying enough HSM bear ammo to get through hunting season in NC. If I decide to hunt out of state I can order more.
