    No primers anywhere. I am waiting for my usual providers to notify me when primers both small and magnum are available.

    I don't know what to tell you except your either gonna have to wait, or spend 5times what they are worth.

    Here's some for sale- CCI #500 Small Pistol Primers 1000 FREE SHIPPING : Supplies at GunBroker.com

    Those prices are just ridiculous. I got lucky last week and scored some sm rifle primers from a local realoder here in town who I bought some 30-06 brass and 8lbs of powder from. Had he not been willing to sell me some sm primers, I'd still be without.

    The only thing I don't have right now is large pistol primers, but I'm gonna wait until the craziness is over with I guess, 'cause I aint payin these high prices.

    'Til then, I'm kinda laying low.

    Free shipping, wow, what a deal on those.

    I was kinda mad when I had to pay almost 40 bucks a thousand here at Gander last month, but did it because the 7000 primers I bought should last me till all this mess is over.

    BTW, sgtD there were 2000 large pistol in that batch. I feel for you man. But this too will soon pass. Or at least I hope it does.

    This is exactly why we all need .22's for practice.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I would suggest placing a backorder somewhere like Powder Valley, Inc. and waiting. Their prices are reasonable and the order will be filled eventually.

    Or, if you are near me, I might be able to help a bit. See the PM I sent you.

    Seen the price of .22 lately?

    FWIW, Cabelas is accepting backorders and citing (FWIW) 2-3 weeks for availability.

    I'm not even set up for reloading .45 acp yet. I haven't bought dies and other stuff, and frankly really don't have a need to do so right now, so I'm gonna wait it out. I have plenty of ammo and don't shoot my .45s much these days. I do have a number of .45 brass saved up for reloading someday, but it can wait.

    For now, I have plenty of sm pistol primers for my .38, .357, and I can load for 9mm and .40 cal too if I feel the need. I also picked up 8lbs of pistol powder from that same guy, so I'm good there too.

    I've got plenty to keep me entertained over the summer with loading for my rifles. I'm gonna be developing loads for .223, .308, & 30-06. Thankfully I am pretty well stocked on components for those now.
