    I am a recreational shooter and I have only 25 UGH. By the time that runs out for me maybe it will be back under 30.00. I have cut back my shooting due to gas and ammo to one time a weekend. I am also loading 7/8 for skeet and 1.oz for trap which is what I usually load. Now go guys and make me feel bad with the hundreds some of you have in reserve.Why not cover primers as well 5000 here.

    Except for powder (only 24lbs), I have enough supplies to load 20,000 1 1/8oz shells.

    I am almost ashamed to to say that there are 93 bags of cheap shot (from $5.00 reclaimed shot to $10.00 a bag) on the floor of the reloading room. The last ton+ I just got last Saturday in Bloomington, IN. at the $10.00 price.

    In the last two months people have twisted my arm to take the old stuff off their hands.

    LOL I don't know why and I am not complaining. But every time the phone rings I seam to get "I got your number from the club website do you know where I can get rid of my husbands old reloading stuff". And I can not refuse to do a kind deed and help them out. They say how much and I go to the bank.

    I have sold about 20 bags to guys at the club at my cost but had to shut that off after one week.

    160 + bags of Magnum shot, 45,000 Fiocchi primers, 15,000 F209A, 20,000 RIO, 3,000 STS209, and 1000 W209. I also have 5 25 lb Kegs of REX I and II, and 12 lbs of Promo. When I bought all the powder I also bought 50,000 WJII wads. I'm 70 years old and hope it lasts another 30 years. Richard

    That's almost like asking how much money you have in the bank.

    I only have 5 or 6 bags, but I'm not really worried as I have a steady supply of cheap lead and will soon be purchasing a shotmaker. I have enough shot and ammo to hold me over until I get the shotmaker and get it figured out.

    I have about 15 bags, but like Tron have determined at present component pricing, it makes more sense to just buy shells. I have been buying Gun Club 8's for $4.00 a box so it doesn't motivate me to reload right now.

    Maybe when I start shooting handicap or feel like shell quality is contributing to my misses, I may reload again but for now am quite happy with the Gun Clubs by Remington.

    If you know how much you have then you don't have enough.

    With all these bags of shot you guys have. No wonder there is a shot shortage and the prices have sky rocketed.
