It’s not too late yet, but I think it might soon be. Yeah–build your own.
For those of you who aren’t the fly by night 2020 gun buyers, I would recommend you get into reloading.
Would you like to be sure that ammo shortages will never affect you?
I don’t know how long the shortage will last. I do know that any investment you do now in reloading will be of great long term value to you if you expect to shoot for another 20 years.
Reloading itself is not rocket science, but it does require that you actually read and follow directions. So I probably just eliminated 1/2 the guys here.
It’s a good feeling to look at the bench, the supplies and the ammo cabinet knowing I’m covered. The only ammo I ever buy is my carry ammo. Everything else I build for a small fraction of the cost.
p.s. I never bought 9mm dies–it used to be so cheap. But for $50 for dies and a shell holder, all I need to do is buy the bullets I need and save some brass. Once you have the basic equipment, calibers are relatively easy and inexpensive to reload.
