Does anyone know where to buy primers please god help
Every time a gun grabber is elected for a second term ;-)I started reloading after Christmas and luckily haven't been plagued by component problems. I have a LGS that has been extremely well stocked. The owner is a big reloader and apparently remembers the last shortage. So far I have bought 9,000 primers and about 5,000 lead bullets. Everytime I go in for something accessory wise for the reloading bench I buy either a pack of primers, bullets or a pound of powder. I'm trying not to overhoard and leave supplies for others but I've got to take care of myself too.
Once supplies return to normal, I plan to buy atleast 5,000 of each style of primer I use and seal them up in ammo cans for the next shortage. I'm thinking these shortages may go in cycles every 3-4 years.
I've been shooting my black powder pistol, it's been kinda reallyIve got a 50k stockpile of various primers and i use primers i find on the shelf for my current needs. Right now im sticking mainly to shooting cast bullets out of my old west type guns. Powder primers bullets are readily available here in quantities enough for me to shoot on a regular basis.
its not really that much. a competition shooter will go through that many in a couple of months just shooting matches. before the idiocy i shot something around 200-300 a weekend just messing around. thats about 900 a month. 10000 a year. at a generous pace ive got 5 years of primers. thats about how long this idiocy is going to take to blow over or we get to chucking federal bullsht into boston harbor. either way, its called making sure you have enough to last.50K! Wow I thought I was doing good stocking up on four bricks of them after that school shooting
hmm it didnt happen under reagan and he was an huge gun grabber. altho there was a run on full auto recievers.Every time a gun grabber is elected for a second term ;-)
I've heard that isn't recommended. They say you can in other larger calibers, but not in 9mm. Not sure exactly why maybe due to the small amount of volume remaining in the casing with the powder and burn rate/pressure???I have looked through my load books but was wondering can you use magnum pistol primers in 9mm loads
If you're referring to me, I don't feel shortchanged or threatened. I currently feel prepared. I didn't start reloading until a couple months ago and could have faced the same problems of shortages. Luckily, one of my LGSs is huge into reloading and is also prepared. I could go in tomorrow and buy 20,000 primers/50,000 lead cast bullets and probably somewhere around 50,000 plated bullets. That's about what he has in stock and he has been doing it for so long that he has his supply pipeline in place.You have 9000 primers and you feel shortchanged or threatened? How about letting others get some of what's left, instead of stashing away 5000 more?
