Default primers

My lgs got a shipment of primers in. I've only been reloading for about 2 months so I only picked up 1000. 37 bucks which isn't bad considering the last bunch I bought around here was 34 before the panic

That is a good price and you are lucky they let you get a full 1K. Our LGS allowed me to buy 2 - 100 packs yesterday at $5 per 100.

Get as many as you can. Reloading supplies are the weak link in the chain, primers in particular.

I've bought 5,000 in the past 2 weeks for 33.40 per 1,000. Small/Large Pistol and Rem Benchrest Small Rifle. I'll probably pickup another 2-3,000 this next week. I'm stockpiling them while they are available.

Ammunition companies are running 24/7 catching up. Reloading supplies will be in short supply until the stocks are up. Small pistol primers will most likely be hard to get for another 6 mos.

I know that they arnt in stock piles but ive been really lucky. I started reloading at the tail end of december before all this panic started. I had 200 primers left and i found some in stock so i got 1000. I had about 75 when i found these tonight. Shooting wayyy more than i was 4 months ago. Which is sweet

When loading for handguns 1,000 primers may not last very long. I run a progressive machine and buy 5,000 at a time. I doubt I will make it thru the drought.
