I am well aware of the accute ammo shortages in the USA. They hit us up here but to a much lesser extent. If cross border shopping were possible on ammo, the starving Yanks would have cleaned us out too. I’ve been smugly patting myself on the back because I stocked up years ago and haven’t had to worry about ammo at all.
I DID spot a hole in my gun preps though - I have just started getting seriously into bullet casting ... and no gun lends itself to casting better than the 45 ACP! Or the 45 Colt! They throw big chunks of lead at low velocities... and I can virtually eliminate my projectile costs if I start pouring my own!😊👍
But - dear gawd! All I want is a cheapo Lee two holer that will drop the classic 230 grain round nose bullets. I used to be able to get these right in town. Now - pretty much EVERYONE is out of stock! I want one that will do 250 gr. semi wad cutters for the 45 Colt, and a round ball mould for my percussion pistol. I may have found one for the 1911... but the other two...nada.
Bullet casting is a pain for some folks but it is almost a necessity when ammo supply trains get derailed. I would never have guessed that casting would have been hit by the shortages... but now I know better.
