I signed up for Email notification at a couple online retailers. Hope to get more before I need it.

Have not had the powder shortage as much as the small primer shortage. I just bought some Titegroup and powerpistol and IMR sr7625 my top three , my LGS had plenty in stock then.

My LGS has not had any powder come in for the last several months. I am still in pretty good shape with what I have been using but did want to try out a new powder so I guess I will just wait.

No SPP locally either. I did get some from Natchez a month or so ago but the shipping charge was crazy high for 4 bricks of primers but I did share the primers and the shipping with a shooting friend.

Well I scored 2lbs Power Pistol a few weeks back, and an 8lb keg of Accurate 2460 yesterday. So my powder shortage is over for now.

I was in Graf's Reloading in St. Charles, MO today & things where looking up. They had HP-38($21.99/lb.) & Winchester SPP for $19.95/500(limit 500). They also had quit a few more bullets & cases in stock.
I'm still good on primers(3,500), so I will wait for prices to come down.
He also had Universal & Varget, but no Titegroup.
I got more powder, so I am good to go for a while, I am trying to keep a 6 month supply(at least) of everything on hand for the next crisis.

I used up the last of my H335 last night, have about 6-700 varmint nightmares, and 600 SRP's. So I'm done loading rifle till my keg of 2460 gets here.

I have 16-1700 SPP's, little over 2lbs of Power Pistol, but no 9mm bullets till my order comes in from Precision delta which could be middle of Oct! It's ok though most of my 9mm cases are full right now, need to empty a few!

My lgs just had Varget show up. The counter guy said its the first shipment on 6 months that they got from the regional distributor. Still only allowed me 1 lb per week, but it's a good sign.

I have plenty of everything, but that's because I buy just a little bit every time I'm in the store, that way, I'm not suffering during the shortages.

I wanted to start reloading .223 and .308 and I finally got the dies I needed but I just can't find powder. I wanted to try CFE223 from Hodgdon but nobody has had it for over 6 months so I'm told.

Ya, the Accurate 2460 was not my first choice but I was watching gunbot with my load books and the 8lb keg came up at a decent price was listed for .223 in my books and the Accurate web site had a recipe for the Varmint nightmare bullets I have, so I bought.

The 1200 9mm I have loaded should get me through till my order from DP comes in.
