You may be out of luck for awhile---I bought 10k a few months ago and just by a stroke of luck found those---came in the day before. Would have been in a world of hurt as this season is about to start..

When you do find them go ahead and buy a couple of years worth so you don't have to worry about it.

I was told by the people at Widener's Reloading Supply that it would be late spring to late summer before Federal, CCI & Winchester would be supplying the public with their primers. They have been putting everything into a BIG military contract. About a week ago I was in Widener's and they had started getting some WW & CCI primers. You might give them a look Widener's Reloading and Shooting Supply INC or give them a call 1-800-615-3006 .

KQ

If you would add a little basic geography to your profile then I could determine if it was worth telling you where some are.
