I learned several decades ago to get stocked up with reloading supplies with our governments ways during election cycles. It seems to always drive up prices,and get harder to find powder,primers,and bullets in stock.
I recently bought another 48 lbs of powder, and 12k primers to add to my reloading supplies.
With the way this years election is playing out, it's better to be prepared.

I try to keep enough inventory to have a cushion of supplies to rely on during the high demand times. It's a balance for me to either spend money on inventory you won't reap the benefits of until much later, or save the funds to have working capital. The worst is buying during the high demand times when prices go up and you ship 1 or 2 items in and pay extra for shipping and/or hazmat, and my prices have to go up. I try to avoid that. But, if Hillary does win the election, you WILL see another run on AR-15's, magazine's, ammo, powder and primers, for sure. That's just part of it. Happens every time a Dem wins.

I have a good supply of the bullets, primers, powder and cases I need for what I have. Minimum 8 lbs of powder etc. I re-started on reloading right before the panic. Not going through that again.

Been doing it for years. Like others said, it's a balance.

It's nice to be able to sit back and relax knowing your inventory is adequate while others panic when they don't prepare.

I started years ago, but a gun swap here and there, then new and better powders coming out lately kinda takes the joy out of looking at the inventory.

Have almost burned the primers I bought after the Clinton/Brady created shortage in the 90s. After that time have had enough reloading stuff to keep me shooting when the other crunches hit. Intend to keep it that way.

I shoot a bunch.

I never stop buying components. That is, until there is a run on them, then I stop.

I took stock the other day of what I have on hand, 70+lbs powder, 6k 223 fmj, 500 308 and about the same in 9mm and 45acp but I'm woefully lite on primers.

If you live in a city or town, check your local fire code on the amount of powder that may be stored. Many limit it to 50 pounds max on one premise.

FJG, can you help with relevant fire code requirements and limitations, if any, that we should know? Last time I researched it, there were none on a statewide level, none at the county level, which left it to local ordinances. Is that correct?

I know what you mean, I shoot a bunch also, and always get nervous when I get down to the last 8 pound jug of any powder I shoot.
I also know a lot of guy's that procrastinate, and then start crying when something happens and they don't have the supplies that they need.

Not good for you all to be posting what you have. As I read it the ATF is very clear on this:

Up to 20 lbs of powder can be openly stored in original containers.
Up to 50 lbs of powder can be stored in an appropriate powder magazine.
You cannot legally store more than 50 lbs of powder in a residence.

I don't like to keep a whole lot on hand but I do try to keep enough on hand to get through 2 shooting seasons without needing to purchase more. That way I could shoot 2 years if all supplies dried up.

Federal primers are what is killing me at this point...they've been non-existent for a very long time.

Judd,
could you link to that reg please?

Here is a search engine for primers and other components.

It shows F210M's in stock at Powder Valley. Best hurry. Hope it helps.

If Bernie wins, I think it only right that you guys with such supplies share and give me half. Please PM me your addresses and I'll come by to pick up my supplies. banana clap
