I'm way late to the party......but are primers about as scarce as popular ammo or is there some to be had? Everything I see says out of stock so.........


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

You can use large rifle primers. Reduce your load a bit and ease back up watching for signs of high pressure.

I found large pistol primers and magnum pistol primers at a local gun store. No small pistol primers, though!

smaller gun shops that don't see any online traffic and not as much foot traffic may have some.

even during the great primer shortage of the past It wasn't this bad

Can you still buy the large rifle primers in 1000 at a time?

I went to the local gun shop today and be darned if he didn't have everything but the brass. It's supposed to be coming Tuesday. I spotted stuff on his bottom shelf that he said he didn't know he had. Bingo! I guess reloading isn't a big deal around here. Now all I need is the dies.

I could have bought 4 bricks of lg pistol primers at our local Fleet Farm the other day. No small pistol, however.
