fed gold 215m primerless???

ok seriously...,

Where the heck is federal with the supply of gold 215M primers. Down to my last and none to b seen in the near future. I have been a loyal fan, but if supply is this bad for the consumer, I feel my loyalty waning. I don't like the idea of being raped by primer scalpers for 100+$ a box. I place the blame squarely on the manufacturer. Anybody have some influence with this company to remind them where they will be when the war is over if they forget about the little guy?

Re: fed gold 215m primerless???

Called Oregon sportsman as soon as they opened this a.m., and they are out. Midway is backordered to September, Midsouth until May.

This truly illustrates the madness. What the heck is going on. By my math it will be 2 years that this product has been back-ordered. Clearly Federal has forgotten about the little guy. Calling federal has yielded ZERO stocking distributors and no results. This is unacceptable business policy in my opinion.

What other primers are comparable for competition (Input appreciated)? I want a mag primer for a 7mm/300 WSM. In my hands, ES and SD are higher with their regular mag primers, and velocity suffers a bit with the 210m's. I have a good load and I would like to stay with it.

Paying 75+$ plus hazmat from a scalper just pisses me off, with no guarantee of proper previous storage/handling.

Surely I am not the only shooter with this problem.

Re: fed gold 215m primerless???

The Wolf Large Rifle Magnum primers performed very close to the same in my 7-300WSM.

I ended up tweaking the load by .1gr to land at exactly the same velocity node. However ES was slightly higher with the Wolf primers.

I ran up on some 215Ms completely by accident and stocked up for awhile then. Hopefully I have enough to outlast the drought.
