It sounds crazy when I say it here in September of 2023, but we’re now well into year 3 of the great ammo shortage that’s been ongoing since 2020. Today, I’m going to provide an update on where things stand with regards to ammo and reloading component supply in order to address the questions I’m constantly receiving from listeners: why is ammo still so hard to find, why is stuff still so expensive, and when will things return to normal. I share your concerns and frustrations and I think about this stuff all the time too. For that reason, I’m doing a detailed dive into the subject in this episode of The Big Game Hunting Podcast.
