Same here. Basspro is understocked and over priced. Walmart? Most of the Walmarts around here are getting rid of their sporting goods section. Dicks now has a bigger paintball section, and they're now creating earth-friendly stores with no hunting and no fishing departments. All the small Mom and Pops are going out of business. What's a cervid serial-killer to do?
The problem is that reloading is not the sure-bet it was a year ago. As soon as the current regime took over-- don't get me started-- the reloading components disappeared. I'm 4 months into a backorder from Grafs on some 308 150 grain FMJ bullets.
Of course, it's our own $#@#$ faults. 1 ) We horde. 2) We are getting older and fewer and there are fewer young guys getting into the sport. 3) We buy out in the suburbs and then don't let hunters hunt our small properties.
