Actually, my Sweetie and I took Alf the Wonder Beagle on a long hike up high near an old ghost town and shuttered silver mine. It was snowy and muddy, but amazingly beautiful. After record cold, we got some almost record heat, but with a brisk wind blowing off the Continental Divide. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon in the gun room reloading. I've recently switched to Alliant Red Dot powder for my light cowboy .357 loads, which are hotter than a lot of other cowboy loads...I sort of modeled my load on the old .38 Long Colt loads from the late 1800s. I figure I'm safe as long as I don't have to deal with any fanatical Philippine insurrectionists, in which case I probably ought to change to a 1911.
I never really spent any time with Red Dot before, but some of the more popular powders I usually use — most notably Hodgdon Titegroup and VV 320 — remain in short supply. Red Dot seems to be readily available, and the accuracy with 158-gr LaserCast bullets has been superb. I'm saving my last 4 pounds of Titegroup for my Sweetie's .32 H&R pistols, were it seems very much at home.
While I do note that ammo is generally more available (especially 9mm, 5.56, 7.62), at least on the Internet, primers remain in desperately short supply. Most of the big Internet sellers, including Midway USA, limit purchases, which means that we competition shooters spend time "foraging" for enough primers to feed the machines (I reloaded 1500+ rounds Sunday). I always used to buy primers in 10K lot to get the price discount. If this ever lightens up, I swear I will save my pennies and dimes and buy 100K of small pistol primers!
