Only thing with them is that they're so backed up filling orders it's going to take about six weeks before that order is shipped. Fortunately, I just received my invoice from PV, after waiting three weeks, so my order should ship within a couple of weeks.
I placed an order at Powder Valley about two weeks ago and got an auto response/basic invoice of my order. The day I ordered, the header on their website said the date expected to ship if ordered today was March 8. That was yesterday so we will see how accurate their ticker is. haha. Standing by for now, I guess.
Third Generation Shooting Supply had the CCI #34 7.62 primers and the Winchester Large Magnum Rifle in stock last week. I bought 2000 of the CCI and 1000 of the Winchester as a knee-jerk reaction on Monday afternoon (March 4) and it was at my door on Thursday (March 7). From the sounds of it, 3rdGSS has their crap together!
I don't know how consisitent the Winchester primers are but it's worth a shot if I run out of Federal #215's. I just got a bolt .308 so the CCI #34 primers should be good to go there. I know the #34's are supposed to be harder for semi auto service rifles to prevent slam fires and what not but I bet my little 700 can put a dent in them.... Uhem. A tad off topic.
