Default Are things beginning to loosen up?

Just wonder if things are beginning to get a little more available in regards to reloading components. As I stated in another post, I was having a bit of a rough time getting IMR 4350 for awhile. Just in the past few days or so, I've been able to pick up 4 lbs. at a couple of places that had no idea of when new stuff was going to arrive.
How's it going for some of the rest of you??

I think it is tough all over. I just got my hands on some Reloader19. Still no primers out here in Virginia Tidewater area.

Denver area is non existant! Friend of mine closed a store 8 or 9 years ago. I got some excellent buys on powder/primers and bullets. Store em in 20MM cans.At the time, I simply figured I'd use it eventually. At normal shooting rates, kids n dad are good for a few years.

I was in a store tonight and seen R-22, IMR 4064, IMR 4350 and IMR 4831 on the shelves. No primers though. 223 value packs and 22lr ammo spied as well. I left em a pound lighter on the 4831 and the 4350 but left about 20 pounds on the shelf.


Sad part is I havent really reloaded enough to know what I really like..lmao. Id imagine that will take a few more years. My 270 loves the h version of the 4831 so I really dunno how it will take the the I version.

Reno area isn't so good either. I have enough to last for a long time...cept I'm down to about 5k in magnum primers.

Pacific Northwest is about the same. Shelves are empty. Dealers are waiting for shipments to get to them. At least thats what they say anyway.

Tight in in Arkansas as well. A buddy of mine is the sporting goods buyer for a local co-op here. He told me this week that its not getting any better either. He's not sure if I'm gonna get the stuff that he ordered for me or not. Ive got enough pwd and bullets to last for a couple of years, but it don't hurt to keep a little extra.
