    I was just wondering. Is there much shot shell reloading being done in Europe?
    Are they experiencing the same type of shortages in components that we are?

    I travel to Europe six times per year on business. Here are my observations.

    My experience is that few people re-load for rifles or pistols. I've never met anyone who reloads shotgun shells.

    In general, the laws on powder and primer buying and storage are so tough it doesn't make much sense to go through the added hassle (I believe this to be by design).

    Shooting is NOT a sport for the 'not-well-healed' so the cost of shells doesn't play as big an issue as it does here. Nor do they shoot as much as we do, so again, the cost of the shells is less of an issue.

    I thought that might be the case. Glad we live in the USA.
