    But I just did order more powder. And the powder prices have started to rise.
    Powder is more expensive, but at least it is available. Primers are available nowhere.

    Casting your own bullets is certainly a thing. Here is a forum dedicated to it. Cast Boolits Pretty cool, but I cna't imagine it is worth your time unless you are retired.

    If you want to get the best prices, you have to be persistent in checking price and availability a couple times a day. Reasonably priced stocks come in and sell out in a matter of hours… sometimes minutes. In the past 2 weeks I’ve purchased 115gr 9mm ball at $22 per 100 count box and Winchester 5.56 55gr FMJ at $0.43 a round with veteran’s discount (1000 count box). Both of these were available for less than 5 hours.

    You won't find good prices online... forget about it. The big sporting goods stores don't advertise when they get a shipment in (they don't always know ahead). They quietly put it on the shelf, so they're frequent customers get first come access. set up a texting group with friends. Each of you picks a day and checks the store a couple times on their day. When it's on the shelf, you text out to the group. You have to be ready to drop-and-drive when you get the text.

    I've only got one 9MM, a West German Army Walther P-1, which is a post-war P-38.
    I don't carry it, I fire a few magazines every couple of years, yet I'm sitting on 4 or 5 hundred rounds of hard ball, plus three 25 round boxes of Hornady Critical Defense.
    At the rate I shoot that pistol, that will last a decade.

    If I was ever to become a gun owner, I would collect a lifetime of ammo, say 20,000 rounds or so. And ups and downs in the market place would not affect you, if you had a firearm, I don't have any, so it is all just theoretical.

    I stock ammo in 21 different calibers and gauges, and have one or more firearms in each.
    At age 72 I will never run out of ammo in my lifetime even if I never buy another box.
    In case of fire, there’s only 300 rounds or so inside the house, the rest is in the barn.

    I roll my own mainly because I shoot IDPA and with practicing routinely use 500+ rounds a month. Add the wife shooting and that number goes up.

    After I had surgery on my left eye I got really paranoid over "flying brass." I salted away my ammunition years ago, hoping that dampness or simple Wisconsin winters wouldn't affect the rounds. Oh, and by the way, shatter-proof shooting glasses are quite pricey. Then again, you get to keep your eyes...
