    Well based on the ten gallons of brass I sorted and cleaned this week, and due to the shortage of
    and price gouging of available ammo, I guess
    I’ll start loading everything I can using large pistol primers, because that’s what I got the most of.
    So .44 mags, .45ACP and .45 LC are in my future.
    Loaded 300 .45auto 200 gr LSWC yesterday.
    That’s like worth like $350-400 on GB.. :confused::o.o:

    My last order from Federal was on 8/21, I received it on 9/16
    I have placed several orders over the last couple months. I have received each order, though this last case took the longest.
    Not that I am in dire need, however this ammo "crisis" has not stopped me from hitting the range weekly, and I need to keep the on-hand supply where I like it. So, I will most likely order another case when I see it is in stock again.

    I have yet to see an NRA instructor or RO that impressed me. Frankly most disgust me as unsafe at any speed.

    He may travel in different circles...

    But the RO and NRA instructors can vary in skill significantly. There are plenty of neckbeards out there who use an NRA certification to prove their worth to society, and some RO are just $12 an hour employees who are given basic instructions.

    Others are better, I've seen a few that are ex MIL or ex LEO that did a good job (IMHO). There's going to be a spectrum of skill sets regardless- there aren't enough SWAT operators and Gunsite caliber instructors to go around. And very few gun owners really want to spend the resources on higher level training (we agree that training is good, just that few will actually commit to it).

    IMHO as long as they are teaching the 4 rules and a reasonable discussion of legal and ethical implications for carry, it is better than nothing for a basic CCW class or range trip. Id love to have Ted Kennedy teach everyone, but its unrealistic. :D

    if you are looking for 40 Precision Delta has longs in stock for 2011's at $317 per K. I bought a K and it was $250 just a short time ago. Hurry up elections, running out of primers. :usa:

    At some point, some or a lot of people are going to have to accept the circumstances and not be able to shoot as much or in some cases, not at all...

    ...or be in 24 hour search mode, constantly checking, being like a barking dog that can't get closer than a foot from the bumper of the moving car, and paying stupid people prices for the meager ammo crumbs they do find.

    Then use this mess as a lesson not to be forgotten.

    I got an email my order shipped this morning, Sunday September 20th after being ordered on August 27th, it's OK, it is what it is. My last order from them shipped in 15 days. They quote 12-15 days.

    F--in Federal will not ship to Illinois because it's to much trouble to
    keep track of the three or 4 counties that won't allow it or because of the
    Foid requirement.

    So F--- U Federal
