Re: I need Primers!!!

Had to fight the urge to buy more. It's more like a necessity right now. I bought 2000 last week and a thousand today, and I had about 2000 already onhand and about 700 primed and ready to load brass cases. I will start buying or trying to purchase more primers going forward, but I also don't want ...

Re: I need Primers!!!

https://i.ibb.co/hCL8zJD/16009684813096260009268791957797.jpg Was able to pick up a 1000 CCi today for $49.99. This is twice in eight days I was able to purchase small pistol primers. I hope this means that more are coming. The shop I got them from said this is the first time in months they receive...

Does Anyone Have Supply Chain Info?

We are all aware of how the pandemic has thrown a monkey wrench into the normal buying and selling of fire arms. Over the last couple of months we are starting to see gun store shelves starting to replenish with some brands. I was at a gun store yesterday and the sales person said that they are gett...

Re: I need Primers!!!

Your best bet is to check with all small indy shops within the radius of what you are willing to drive to get them. I got some small pistol pri.ers but had to drive 2 1/2 hours each way to get them. They are out there but will require some work on your part to find them. Great advice!!!!! I live in...

Re: Using Magnum Primers In Non-Magnum Loads

I'm having a heck of a time finding even small magnum pistol primers. There isn't a retail spot within 45 minutes of me that has a single pistol primer. I'm about to start researching loads using the small rifle primers I have with the 124gr plated bullets I have. Be careful if you will be shooting...

Re: The Blue Bullet

Ordered 1200 of these last night , anyone have any experience reloading with this product? I love blue bullets. I use the 125gr RN in my SFX. However, if you just ordered them this past week, be prepared to wait a long time before they come in. Unlike most other vendors, blue bullet will take your ...

Ammunition and Reloading Supplies At Gun Shows During Pandemic

Hey folks, there are a couple of gun shows passing through over the next few weeks, and I was just wondering if anyone has been to a gun show during the pandemic (especially since June), and did you see items like primers (small pistol) and pistol powders available? I don't want to plunk down money ...

Using Magnum Primers In Non-Magnum Loads

Hey folks, I thought this would be a great topic to chew on for a bit. I know here in my area (Atlanta, GA) that small pistol primers are getting real hard to find, but small pistol magnum are still a bit easier to get. Personally, I will not use magnum rounds when loading 9mm, because I use TightGr...

Keep Waiting For More Inventory, But Still Nothing

I want a TP9 Elite SC in black so bad, but I just can't see spending more than $70 more than I was going to pay in March. That was my thinking in April and May, now they are just not available anywhere. I have an Elite as my EDC and an SFX for USPSA matches, so for now I am not tempted to purchase f...

Re: Ammo availability

Ammo is getting harder to get hold of. It is the perfect storm of price gouging and slowing of supply, since a lot of places are running short staffed and taking longer to fill orders. Back in February, the last time I purchased factory ammo, I paid $7.50 a 60 round box of Monarch 115GR FMJ RN with ...

Re: OAL On 9mm 125GR Lead Poly Coated Bullets

Thank you very much for your sage advise! I did dial back on the flare and that seems to do the trick. I am going to open my other pack of ACME bullets soon, and I would love for the OAL to be at least 1.10".
