No, not enough ammo and no longer reload. I keep looking and find some on occasion.

I’m ok for a good long while. Picked up lots of stuff at an estate sale.

I'm good for quite a while now. Pretty stocked up on all primers, bullets, shot and powder that I need and just ordered a case of CB1100-12 wads from Midway. :)

Three cases of Federal Top Guns showed up on the front porch yesterday. Scrupulous attention to searching for ammo stock does pay dividends. I’m buying two or three cases each time I see what I want. So far it’s working. Sitting on 21 cases right now.

Went looking a couple months ago when we were down to 10. Didn’t realize the shortage was affecting shotgun stuff so badly. Now back up to 50. That’ll last about half the year. Will look for more in spring. Will try to stay above 25 flats from here on out. That should give me three months to find what I need.

I'm good except for shot. Hoping that I can find some in the spring.

I did an inventory earlier this week. I'm good for about a year or so, my limiting factor is 8000 primers, I have way more of everything else!

Sounds like some of you reloaders should get together to trade what you have a lot of for what you need. One guy has shot and no primers. The other guy has primers but no shot. Does anyone else see where this is going?

Hazmat fees, shipping and distance problems really limit trading

For the most part yes. Don’t shoot skeet as much as I used to and I’m ok with supplies for that. Have enough steel shot for a couple of duck seasons. Been considering starting to reload for the Garand again do I can shoot in the high power matches. I have to every thing I need except large rifle primers.
Ironically I have extra pistol primers that I will never use and more 209 then I need.

Depends on where you are. Not much available here and only a few field loads at nose bleed prices.

I asked this because I was concerned if registered skeet would be affected because shooters would not have sufficient ammunition.

I have two full years of reloading supplies. I’m hoping Republicans take the House & add at least 3 seats to the Senate in 2022.

All larger registered events could have some challenges this year. If a shooter has to fly in and can't be sure that there is target ammo available at or near the venue.....not good.

It will be interesting to get feedback on how the month of February and first week of March go in Florida and Georgia with the big sporting events held there...Gator Cup, Seminole and others. If it is difficult for those, the regionals and other big blasts coming along will be tough too.

I just signed up a few weeks ago for the NE regional at M&M in May. That is drivable for me...9 hours each way but I will reserve factory ammo for that event and take it with me.
