LGS shelves have a good selection of powder, lots of bullets, no primers.

Prices are still ~$50/lb for powder.

The only primers they had were CCI #34 @ $129/K

Primers. I wish there was a better way. Seems to be our weakest link as shooters and reloaders.
Yep.
I’m glad I planned ahead and stocked up.
I mean hoarded.

Then complained about primer availability at the LGS.
Yeah, that was not a complaint, it was an observation on local availability and prices.
I did agree with madmatter1970 that primers continue to be a weak spot.

I am also watching the local ammo supply as to price and availability, no complaints from there as I'm not interested in buying any ammo anytime soon either.

I did not mean anyone should reload primers. I meant the oposite. I tried 5 shot gun primes. 4 failed. One did ignite. Not in a live powdered shell. Reloading primers does not work. Maybe if for whatever reason your life depended on it. But I can not think of a scenario it would be better than using a knife. Or sharp stick. Or brick.

I'm glad my LGS has not engaged in any price gouging.
