Reloading supplies are scarce as well. This is especially true for primers.

However, try to find the shell holders for the more common rifle calibers. I’m looking for a shell holder that fits a .30-06 Springfield. That is the parent cartridge of a number of other rounds such as the .270 Winchester, the .35 Whelen, the .25-06, and the .338-06.

Good luck!

Cabelas? No!

MidwayUSA? Nyet!

Brownells? Non!

BassPro Shop? Nope!

Graf & Sons? Nein!

Amazon? Only if you are willing to pay almost four times MSRP.

EBay? Used only and sold prices are $22 and up plus shipping.

Now if you are looking for shell holders for such popular cartridges as the .303 Savage, the .303 British, or that safari favorite of years gone-by the 6.5×54 Mannlicher-Schoenauer, you are in luck.

    While I doubt that .45 ACP reloading supplies are any easier to find, it might help.

  2. For reloading hardware, including shell holders, try They make awesome presses, dies and numerous other reloading hardware necessities.
