You said it. I'm glad the OP finally got his ammo, don't get me wrong. However, this "Jack Ross" drama is a canonical example of why I started rollin' my own. I don't need to be concerned about whether the ammo vendors have what I shoot in stock. When I need a box, i just sit down and crank out a couple boxes. This is also why I started casting; projectile availability is no longer an issue.
Oh, and I save a lot of money per round, too. :-)
shooter in California should at least pick up something like a Lee Classic Turret press and get going. Yes, most shooters can afford such a setup; they typically buy multiple guns, so they can buy a decent reloading setup, too (I know, Mosin buyers lke me are the one exception
). It'd be less than $300 for everything.
