    I only shoot practice, and steel at that, so what I say will appear to have little direct application, except to those who can see through the trees, but shot $$ is not the problem - shooters are. Read the threads and it is the curmudgeonly, unflexible attitudes that shooters are the center of the shooting universe - it doesn't work that way in shooting economics.

    The commodities run the show. The cost for components and the money to pay for them are not elastic - its limited. And since I don't travel for ATA shooting, I'm not even addressing that, but I do understand that impact. But it seems everyone is focus on the price of lead.

    Don't like reloading for $4/box - don't load 1-1/8 or 1oz loads, drop to 7/8s or 3/4s. 1 bag of shot will load 355 hulls or 533 hulls - its your choice, no one is putting a muzzle to your head and telling you you have to shoot more lead at 16 yards - who the heck even needs 1-1/8 oz of lead at 16 yards anymore?! I could also ask why many are paying 2x price for a shot media, but I well understand that issue.

    Shot is not the problem, it is US.

    The problem is the fact that prices are going up up up up. Pay is(except for state/fed/union workers) staying flat flat flat. I have not had a raise in 5yrs why. Because I could easily be replaced by a younger worker for a 1/2 of what I make now. It sucks but unless you have a contacted pay raise forget it.
