You mean like...in stock? Good luck. Especially if you're looking for the common calibers like 233 or 308

Am I better off ordering with Backorder sales like with Brownell?

Good luck finding anything in stock. I tried emailing Powder Valley Inc. but was told no idea of ETA on backorders. It's gonna be awhile before things are somewhat normal again.

I just did an inventory of my supplies at home (powder, primers, brass, bullets) and although its enough for my shooting the rest of this year, and probably next year as well, its still spooky. My recommendation is to get email alerts when things are orderable, and then immediately jump online and buy what you need (but please don't hoard). Big online retailers are your best bet, locally will be hit or miss and you will miss 99% of the time. I personally find that calling a local retailier everyday is not a productive use of my time, nor is it good for them. YMMV.

Philips Wholesale in Covina. Anyone been there lately? Are they as bare as the Turner's display cases?

If I go to Angeles I'll report back. You don't specify what you're looking for. bulletheads has .223 55 grain for $185/1000. I'm BO at midway for the last month, and my ship date changes by weeks to years depending on when I check. I'll believe it when I see it.

I can find powder at one place, primers at another, but never at the same place. Looks like everything has an order backlog of weeks to months just to process them.

I've gotten the midway in stock alerts, and the stuff is sold out even though I click on the link immediately LOL some guys get product though.

Pray that the reloading Gods will shine some light on us soon. And hopefully the shortage causes the newbs to quit, so us "vets" no longer have to deal with this....

Last Thursday I picked up the last of the small rifle primers and BL-C2 that Phillips Wholesale had. He does get stuff restocked regularly. He was expecting more within a week. He is currently limiting primers to 2K per customer. Fed Match small rifle primers were $35 per K. The 8# of BL-C2 was $158. He had no 55 grain bullets and no other powder fit for 223 in any size. Today I saw CCI bench rest primers at the Stockade $50 per K ouch. Stockade has some Hornady 55 gr Varmint bullets I bought a few boxes $16 per box of 100 not many left. The only powder fit for 223 they had was RL-10.

I'm also looking for primers, brass, bullets, powders and dies... But, I can't find a damn thing anywhere I've looked online or locally.

Looking strictly for 9mm, maybe 7.62 x 39mm... but also .223/5.56mm (which I don't expect to find)...

This panic buying/hoarding bulls%%t is getting old.

there is a new shop opening in Paradise Cal. called F.F.F. Outdoor Sports, (fins, fur, and feather) they had 223 dies this past weekend and expect more this upcomming week. they seem to have shelves of dies in all calibers..{I have all my dies so I didn't really pay that much attention.} They also had components.. just thought I would throw that out there....

I saw Wolfe small rifle primers for $24.99 per 1000 (I think) at the Ammunitionstore.com but you have the hazmat fee for orders......

I think I have 20k small pistol primers in my garage. That's what, $3k?
Maybe I should sell them and buy a DPMS AR15

OP, what area of NorCal are you in?

Xtreme Bullets has 9mm and 45 plated bullets as well as lead cast bullets in stock. At least that's what their website says.

Canyon Sports in Martinez had various powders in stock last Friday, I bought some Hogdon's Lil' Gun, $26/lb.

City Arms in Pleasant Hill had some Alliant powders last Friday also.

Antioch Armory ( Antioch ) and J&R Sports in Livermore carry reloading supplies. But like others have said, stocks are low!

There's a guy on craiglist in Santa Rosa/Petaluma that claims to have Winchester SPP and various powders for sale.

Hope this helps....

fwiw powder valley says they're shipping 4 weeks delayed and I can't even get the website to pull up a order page LOL

I've been looking too long tonight. Can't find any bullets, they're ridiculously priced on GB so I don't blame anybody for selling them there.

Now I feel good. Because of my anal brass rat habits I have more brass then I might ever use, My primer stash is up to about 20k misc primers, though mostly sr and lp, and I have about 20 lbs of experimental powders to play with.

Most of it came from 4 different powder valley buys...

Sucks that I only have 500 .45 projectiles... :O

Just kidding, I got a few more calibers too.

If you are a veteran re-loader as I am, you had your supplies long time ago. Its a learning curve for newbs. Never get caught short again.
we need newbs to keep the process going not stop.
