I'll be near a regional supplier with great prices on reloading supplies in a couple of weeks. I'm usually near there in late winter and early autumn. I usually stock-up then and save a tank of gas.

I don't really need a lot right now, a couple of thousand wads and some shot. His shot prices are better than what I see most folks paying on here. I can save about $10/bag with high quality home-made from a guy with hit-or-miss supply and who is hard to meet-up with. I'll probably buy a moderate supply of shot. If the maker of the home-made shot and I cross paths during the shooting season when he has some for sale, I'll probably supplement my supply with some of that.

I am looking a my powder supply. I probably have enough to last until my next winter trip and almost certainly have enough to last until the fall trip.

Soooo, if he has powders I could use, should I buy now? I hate to exaggerate the supply problems with this quasi-hoarding behavior, but I don't want to be stuck powderless in the future.

Doesn't sound like hoarding to me, just good common sense, why waste a tank of gas in a couple months when you're there now. Also while you are picking up your supplies ask your buddies if they need anything, sometimes you can get a small price break for bulk or full case buys. Ross Puls

There's no time like now..

Certainly, prices wont decrease, go for it.

Two years worth of components, IMO, is not hoarding.

How much is your supplier charging for shot? I refuse to pay over $40. Over $40 and I'll shoot new Kemens.
