Reloading Stuff- Academy Sports


Recommended Posts

I don't reload but had a short list of items I would pick up for a buddy. Asked the Dept Mgr why no supplies as of late and he said all were dropped to make way for things that they could get.

doesn't make sense to tie up retail space on items you can't get, or replace stock in.  From a business perspective, it's better to just get out of that particular category of goods and find something you can actually sell ...

May have been the same store, but I went into the one at Mt. Juliet some time back. Shelves were empty, replaced by something else. Gave up, haven't been back. And, Academy isn't alone. Most stores, brick & mortar, online, all in the same boat. Occasionally, something will show up, but doesn't last long.

If things keep going like they have been, reloading as we know it may be a thing of the past. You can have a press, dies, scale, powder measure, calipers etc and if you don't have powder, primer and bullets all you have is expensive equipment collecting dust!! And guess what, the ammo mfgs. could care less!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s the beauty of Capitalism. If a profitable market exists then someone will address it. Primers are beginning to appear again now, albeit at much higher prices. Brass, powder, and bullets have been available through all of this, just in lesser quantities. Eventually supply and demand will equalize and prices will reduce. We are seeing this beginning to happen with ammo as supplies increase. 

All of this is based on no more unexpected upheavals in the market though, and I would never bet against something like that happening. Two years ago consumer ammunition consumption was ~8 Billion rounds per annum. Depending on who you believe, current demand is anywhere up to ~12 Billion rounds. A 50% increase in demand is not easily supplied in the short term. Eventually demand will drop to a lower level, hoarding will slow, and supply will increase.

Capitalism - the worst form of economy, except for all the other ones!
