New Bullets for 2021
By Sierra Bullets
Happy New Year! We hope that 2021 has been off to a good start for each of you. What will this year bring? Wow, last year was a roller coaster on every hand. We start 2021 with a lot of uncertainty. In the shooting world, we have a shortage on almost all components. Primers seem to be the biggest concern for many. Powders are also in a tough supply/demand situation. There are a lot of new gun owners who find ammunition hard to find. They then become new hand-loaders with a short supply of components. Many tend to bulk buy all they can find and afford. Be wise and vigilant in your purchases though. Just because a powder is found does not mean it will work in any cartridge you would want to try and use it in. One would be well advised to research before you purchase.
