Home and settled down some. I realize that the entire industry has had price increases over the past 4 or 5 years. Fear? Good marketing ploys? Shortages? man made or real? Hoarding (prepping)? The many wars our elected officials seem to keep us involved in?You pick the excuse. Lead sky rocketed in prices. Have you bought a car battery lately? Gun Powder of all types has doubled in most cases. Primers Up about 50% and would be higher if the dealers thought they could get away with it. Brass, and all the components, then the guns themselves. Guns have doubled in price also. Is this safe to keep buying will the prices top out and eventually fall to nothing like the housing market? Like precious medals have done.
Since I don't cast, I shop the internet for the best prices on what ever bullet I need to stock up. I don't compete much anymore. However I still like to shoot and have such a wide variety of weapons to play with. I need to save a buck where I can to continue their enjoyment. If I can get free shipping from one dealer or another then I jump on it. Still not a sure thing but, it gives you a mark to shoot for. Remember most on line companies charge shipping and some times Haz-Mat fees. I guess I need to start doing that with Percussion caps also.
Drop in at the remarks section below and let me know the price on caps or primers in your area. Not asking where you live but, a general area would be nice.
Hunting seasons are gearing up. Ya'll be safe out there. Don't be like this Goober
