I went today to look for some reloading supplies and one of my LGS had remington small pistol primers. They only would let me buy two boxes a day but it was worth it. Untill he told me they were $10 for 100 primers!!!!! All I could do was laugh as I walked out the door with no primers. I was just gonna buy a few hundred to start reloading again because I havent been able to find them in stock. But im not paying $10 for 100 primers, I will just wait a few weeks untill I can buy bulk online.
Sorry to hear about the scarcity of ammo on your side of the pond. I am kind of worried about the Feds motives on buying all that .40 ammo. Of course that is a LEO round. The military uses 9mm! There is plenty of ammo in the German stores from all over this continent. I even practiced with some crazy Russian steel case ball point 9mm. I swear it was the color of titanium. It was the first time my sig had a misfire. I have had only one from this pistol now. It was the ammo though. Next time I pick up some Russian ammo I will post a picture.
