Trying to Find Ammo or Components in a Shortage

It is perhaps one of the most frustrating obstacles a hunter or shooter ever has to deal with. Going into a sporting goods store in the current market and attempting to buy powder, bullets, brass, or primers will have you shaking your head in disgust. If only we all had crystal balls a few short years ago we could have planned accordingly and bought our supplies before an eight-pound jug of H1000 required taking out a second mortgage on your home.

Sadly, however, crystal balls only exist in the movies and the reality is reloading supplies and ammunition are expensive, if you can even find them. All too often the shelves in hunting departments could be confused with the shelves in Old Mother Hubbard’s cupboards. So, what are we supposed to do? How do we as shooters, hunters, and reloaders continue to shoot, hunt, and reload when the necessary materials to do so are getting so scarce?

Unfortunately, there are not a lot of good options when it comes to trying to answer these questions. The truth is we are all at the mercy of material suppliers. It seems that the only realistic choice we have is, to put it bluntly, shut up and deal with it. It sucks, we know. We love to shoot and reload, too! And, despite what everyone thinks, we’re victims of the same shortages as all of you. But we all know just dealing with it is easier said than done. No one wants to shoot less, no one wants to hunt less, and no one wants to reload fewer rounds. All we can do, all any of us can do, is put our heads down and press forward. It’s the American way.

We’re sorry we cannot offer better advice, we just wanted you to know that we understand and we’re with you. We at Peterson Cartridge are working around the clock to produce as much brass as possible. And you have our promise that we will continue to make the highest quality brass we can. Hopefully, this shortage will end soon, and product will ship more consistently. Until then, we look forward to seeing you on the range and in the field.
