Re: who's reloading tonight?
I'm loaded up pretty good at the moment, what I need to do is shoot. Went to the local gun shop with a couple of the other Old Guys this afternoon as one of them wanted to purchase a new Ruger LCP or LC9, he chose the LCP. I picked up a pound of powder and a 1000 primers. The stock of ammo and components was the largest I have seen in a while. I mean pallet load stacks of ammo clogging the aisles. Powder and primers were in good supply also. Powder was priced around $19/lb., primers were $34-$36/1000 with three mfgs to choose from. Blazer 22lr. was $16/525, Blazer Brass 380acp. was $16/50, Blazer Brass .38spl. was $17/50, Federal 9mm was $12/50, .40S&W was $15/50 and .45acp was $17/50. They had Fed. green tip 5.56 for $170/420 in an ammo can just to give you an idea. The Ruger LCP with Lasermax was $330, $300 without the laser. This is a high volume gun shop, take a number, now serving no. 87, type of place but it is the major retailer of shooter's supply in this area.
