I’m just getting into metallic reloading. Been load TSS for several years. I started gathering supplies in late January. You can still find components at a decent or regular price but you have to hunt for it. I don’t go driving around looking as that counter productive around where I live. No shops carry any reloading supplies. I scour the internet. Still have over 1,000 bullets on the way, 5 pounds of varget and superformance heading this way and a couple of hundred more pieces of brass (300 Win Mag, 7mm mag and 6.5 Creedmor). I’ve got all the dies and a single stage press as well.

Academy in macon has a decent selection this morning

556, 22, 270, 357 sig, 30 30, and turkey shells as well
Yep, I stopped there around 11:15 and they still had some in stock that survived the 9 am ammo rush. They had 9mm also. Got my 2 box quota of 9mm. Didn't see any 22s. Had 6.5 creedmoor also.

I was in Dick's Field & Stream this morning in Kennesaw, they have some .308 and .243 on the shelf - limit 2 to a customer. They had about 10 boxes of each around $40. Hope this might help to some of those in need.

I picked up 2 boxes of 270, then remembered my dad gifted me 200 sierra 140 grain 270s for Christmas. I put them back, hoping someone who needed them could pick them up
 
Winchester is actively searching for people selling over MSRP. When they find them they aren't allowed to buy any Winchester Products for a period of time is my understanding.
They "ain't" looking to hard for offenders then. Price gouging is every where for the most part.

I stopped by Palmetto State Armory last week. They had plenty of 9mm, 45 acp, 380 if you wanted to pay their price. 9mm were 34.99, 45's were 39.99 380's were 27.99

They clearly can’t do anything about second hand buyers ... resellers.... but they can do something about someone who buys direct or through an authorized supplier. If you see it and believe they are selling it above MSRP report it to them.. I’m sure they sill check it out.

I understand that but I've not read or heard that Winchester or any other ammo manufacturer doing anything about the high prices. You got any viable info of the such or just "Ive heard" this is what they are doing?

yeah...I guess your right...I have only heard....from my friend that owns the LGS. He told me he has been checked by Winchester 3 times in the past 6 mo. I have only heard him speak about Winchester doing this...no one else.

Isn't Winchester the one that filed suit against Cheaper Than Dirt?
