Default Del Mar Gun Show - Reloading Material Availability

Given the current ammo shortage, I think it is a fair question to ask if there is a way to know ahead of time whether they even have reloading materials such as powders and primers available. I went to the Costa Mesa show last time and was told they didn't have any powder.

There is one line that is for primers and powder only. As a side note they will most likely be completely sold out for tomorrow. They had a huge amount of ammo and reloading supplies but the crowd was HUGE!!!!!! It looked like every single person was spending over $300 each in the ammo lines and the primer, powder line. There is a smaller shorter line for ammo inside that is not MiWall and the prices were almost double.

That reloading line was 6 hours long! I heard everyone there had to fill out some forms and then they had questions and took their time .. ugh. After waiting in the long MiWall line, I was not in the mood for waiting basically the rest of the day or going again the next day.
