    It's probably just that everybody that bought a rifle bought ammo to go with it. The cost to start reloading a new caliber is high to begin with but it pays off over the long run. Since you like the Tec side you might think about starting reloading, when Obummer caused the last shortage it really didn't effect me except 22's. I like reloading but I have extra time. The new CFE and IMR non copper fouling powders are not available in factory loads everything I reload now is using those powders.

    Obummer didn't cause the shortage. Sandy Hook (and the subsequent calls for bans by the legislators) did. It led to a run (a buying frenzy) on guns and ammo. It affected reloading components as well. I remember hearing the reloaders complain they couldn't get powder. For a LONG time.

    The chance of me reloading now, or any time soon, is ZERO. Mostly, because I don't have room (a place) to set up a bench. I don't have a "man cave." Out in the open, in the living room, isn't an option. Maybe when the kids move out, I can take over one of the rooms. That's years away.

    But, if there's a shortage of cartridges (for whatever reason), there's a shortage of components, too. So....

    There is no shortage of components at the moment.

    I was referring to the big shortage after 2012 (Sandy Hook). There was a shortage of everything. I distinctly remember hearing the reloaders bemoaning the lack of powder on the shelves. Primers, too.

    If there's a true and protracted shortage of ammo, components won't be far behind. Maybe this is just a glitch in the production system. I hope!

    if they are THAT accurate why would you need to fire more then one or two per trip to the range?

    I enjoy seeing the warp in the space-time continuum every time I fire one.

    It's like sending a tiny Chuck Norris downrange at supersonic speeds.

    Found some Hornady ELD-M 140 at TargetSportsUSA. Ordered some. They also had Federal Gold Medal Match Berger 130-gr.

    Still no Berger Hybrid 140, though.
