There are options. Unfortunately prices are all over the place, and it's hard to say what prices should be since they have really been in flux since 2008.
Were you looking for manufactured FMJ practice loads, or reloads from a trustworthy source?
I'm in the Houston area - so far, right now, .45 seems to be fairly available, and not too bad in price (JHP or FMJ) if you're open to buying from a reputable web dealer. The source I use seems to be holding just a hair over usual retail before the frenzy started. You can't just grab it off any old shelf right now, but usually if I need some, I can find it within a day or two, mail order.
Locally the gun shows and local retailers who do have any inventory are the ones that have the severely jacked up prices. I can't speak for other areas such as far out rural areas. Posts I've read saying they are running into good deals, but they admit they were in the right place at the right time. We had two great sources for reloads, that completely dried up when all this happened, and are still dried up. But we can get manufactured reloads without much issue and are paying .80 per, whereas most is about $1.00 per, or so (depending on volume you buy). Some are getting better deals, and some aren't seeing that good.
I know that's not a very concrete answer but hope it helps.
