I've also been stocking up on all the components I can find, but when you can find them it is usually at places like Gun Broker and the prices are generally double the normal retail price, i.e. $85 for a box of primers that would normally run about $30-$35. I know that several manufacturers have stopped taking backorders and some have even stopped selling direct to consumers because the backorders from distributors and wholesalers are so backed up that even with stepped up production, it will take months to clear the backlog.
    buying at those prices you are creating the problem not helping. Most of our local shops received CCi primers last week.

    Supply and Demand 101:

    A microeconomic law that states that, all other factors being equal, as the price of a good or service increases, consumer demand for the good or service will decrease and vice versa.

    Supply Chain Management 101:

    In the realm of supply chain management, “Just in time” refers to an inventory strategy that it used to improve a business’s return on investment through a reduction of in process inventory and all related costs.

    When stock drops to a certain level, new stocks have to be ordered. This helps maintain space in the warehouse and keeps costs down to a reasonable amount. One drawback of “Just in time” however is that the re-order level is determined by the previous demand. If the demand rises above that amount, then inventory will be depleted a lot faster than usual and might cause customer service problems.

    Purchase limit here in sunny socal is either 2 to 5 50 round boxes per day. Walmart has been out of ammo here for over 8 weeks with no relief in sight. Small pistol primers have been non existant for about the same time frame. I have plenty of powder, cases, and bullets, no primers. Very frustrating.

    It's very tight even as a dealer/trainer to get any from the wholesalers. Cabelas though has been filling back orders for 38 SPL and I bought a bunch of 9MM last week at their store in Kansas City when I went through.

    Had to buy retail since my distributors were OUT!

    Walmart in Camillus, NY

    Walmart in Camillus, NY had 10 boxes of 9mm Blazer Brass @ $9/box when I stopped in on Sunday so I picked up 4 boxes. Went through 1 box with no malfunctions, so I'll heading back there tomorrow to buy out the remaining boxes if there are any left.

    That makes over 600 rounds (in about 3 weeks) through my new Taurus 24/7 Pro DS stainless without a single malfunction--including Speer Gold Dot +P, American Eagle, WWB, UMC and now Blazer Brass. It eats it all with no complaints.

    :
    Goose Creek, SC had 9mm Blazer Brass ammo at the same price last night. Limit 6 so I bought 6. There was also Winchester 100 round 45 ACP & 40 S&W and various rifle rounds, 243, 270, 223, 30-30, 7mm Rem Mag....

    The local gun shop charges $28.99 for the same box of 9mm Blazer Brass Ammo, 2 weeks ago it was $17.99.
