It’ll probably be the new normal price from here on out. Even if when things start to go normal for stocks of ammo and reloading components IMO. It’s just in high demand now since there’s millions of new gun owners. So more pressure on manufacturers. I’ve stocked up quite a bit of everything for the past 2 years before election. But I never know was gonna get this bad. Especially with the pandemic, civil unrest, and demoass trying to take our guns.
Sadly, I see paying a premium on things for a while. I mean it sucks, but firearms are something that I've resigned long ago as one of my expensive hobbies. I am pretty "decently" stocked up on many things, but unfortunately reloading wasn't one of them. Overall, I think I'm doing ok on stuff even for reloading.
Like many things in life, timing is everything. Just before recent stuff (pandemic, civil unrest, etc like you mentioned), I had gotten back into shooting a lot, so had stocked up on ammo. But I was also shooting a lot during that time.
Ah, probably a good thing that things are tighter now. Otherwise maybe I'd already have expanded to a different caliber, or two.
