when my current stock of components are used up? Not because of current availability, but because of new pricing?

W029 Primers - Last summer $132/5000; Now $240/5000 (Grafs & Sons)
Vectan Powder - This spring $109 / 8 lbs; Now $160 / 8 lbs (Vectan powder no longer being imported, prices for Alliant powders @ Recobs)
Lawrence shot - Last year $40 / 25lbs; Now $44 / 25 lbs (recobs)
Duster Wads - Lat year $103 / 5000; Now $120 /5000 (Grafs)

I have enough to last me until fall of 2022, but at the new prices it's $6.42/box. ( 1 1/8oz loads). At previous prices, it was $5.04/box. I guess if shell are up @ $8/box it's a good deal.

I sold my reloading gear once. I ended up replacing almost all of it several years later. It seems like I ended up paying about twice a much as got for the old gear. I reloaded almost everything for a while.

I have been shooting store bought ammo again, but am not selling my reloading gear. It costs nothing to sit on the shelf in boxes, and it is right there if and when I run out of new ammo.

So True.
I have 4 9000's and a Grabber converted to Hydro. Cost me less than $2000.oo bought new. I am not sure you can buy 2 for that price today. They don't eat or complain. Always there when I need them. .

My supplier has decent prices when your in a bind, he weighs out the powder and puts them in little plastic baggies for me.... all I have to do is send him a page to his beeper and he calls back with where to meet up.
Most suppliers put the powder in a balloon.
