    I could stop reloading today and be set for a while for most common calibers and shotgun sabots.

    My friends 7mm mag is selling for $2 a round and his .06 ( off brand mfgs) @ 25 a box.

    I might look into a .44, .41 or.357 mag rifle. I don't know why.

    I have a Henry Big Boy Steel in .44 magnum that I absolutely love. The receiver is color case hardened and a real beauty. I hunted with it one time and was fortunate to take a doe. Hand loads by the way.

    I shoot a lot of different calibers including .243. One thing I noticed since Sandy Hook is the .243 was the last ammo to disappear in a buying crisis. Now that it has gone away I*m not sure how quickly it will return

    I was pleasantly surprised that the 6.5 creedmore seems to be sporadically available.
    Word is that Remingtons plant is back at 80-90% capacity. Not great, but a damn sight better than nothing. Wont be much on the way of deals this season, but I think we'd all be happy just having inventory right now. Long term, I gotta believe Vista will add some capacity. Especially with the whole Russian thing. I know the industry moves at glacial pace, but somebody has to see the opportunity...prices have been up for 2 years, inflation projected up for a while, Russian sanctions, etc.

    In January I bought a crossbow, tired of scrounging for ammo to be both in stock and at a price that didn't make my asshole sore. It also extends my season. I don't care if I get a deer or not, sometimes I just wanna be out in the woods... lol
