Anyone waiting on primers?.

Hate to rehash an old subject, but I just wanted to ask if anyone
has any new info. on primer availability.
I placed an order with Powder Valley back in early April for a few
thousand small and large pistol primers and 2 lb's of 231.
Nothing yet.

Contacted them back in Oct. and they told me my order was still
active, just did not know when it would be filled.
No choice but to wait.

Wow back in April? Bummer. Who did you piss off there?

I ordered a bunch of primers (LR, 223, SP) and two kegs of powder back 12.21.09 and got it a week later. You probably ordered some exotic stuff.

Same here, my back order is still from May - for CCI SP/ LP - but all my Federal backorders already came. I guess we have to wait more.

Has payment already gone through? If not, I'd cancel the orders as there are other sources for those items who have them in stock.

I was at the local Gander Mtn. last week and they had CCI large and small pistol primers.

$49.00/K.

Gouge.

No Thanks.

I wouldn't cancel the backorders. I'd order from some other place that has them in stock and keep the backorders.

Primers keep for a long time, and this shortage illustrates nicely that there's a significant advantage to having more on hand than you might need immediately.

Pretty much all sizes are in stock around here but not necessarily the brand you may want. I took a chance on Wolf and picked up some Winchester. Usually I use CCI and I've found those but not in all sizes. The goal......buy whatever quantity of reloading components as my wife will let me get away with. I don't trust the supply or the government (present administration for sure!). Stuff on back order stays on back order!

All I have to do is drive 10 miles and get all the primers I need. Unfortunately that usually means 1k as they want $40 for them. It's by far the largest reloading cost, even over my cast boolits.

Sportsman's Warehouse is almost fully stocked lately around here @ $29-$31/K. That's not horrible with no shipping or hazmat.

Getting those shelves filled back up with powder and boolits too.

tons at Crossroads of the west show here in Utah over the weekend. Picked up 5k Wolf Sp for $125 cheaper than what I paid at Powder Valley 4 months ago.

I can buy all the federal I want locally for $34.00 a thousand. But I still have 10 K on a shelf so I am good.
