    Primers are as rare as rocking horse shit here in New Zealand at the moment. It has something to do with them all going to US military (or so I was told)

    I have found a shop that stocks both the Fed 215 Match and the CCI250 but in limited numbers

    My Edge should be ready in 6 months but I want to get the components while I can.

    What would be the best primer to use? what would the difference be?

    Thanks again, your help is appreciated as usual (just found a source for the trusty H1000 as well!!)

    Rgds, Steve

    According to Shawn's article on the development of the Edge, he has found the CCI250's to be the best with H-1000. I have only used the CCI-250's and have had terrific success (low ES's and great accuracy).

    Can I tell you when I have picked up mine!!

    He limits you to 100 but if you buy projectiles he will sell you the corresponding number of primers.

    a bit different but its the only reason he has any left.

    Cheers, Steve

    Ive just purchased 4200 of them, probably the last in the country.
    If things get REALLY tight for them I may sell some but, have a ring around first, three phone calls was all it took for me.

    Its getting pretty bad for them, I spoke to a distributor that I know well about it last week, hes had 2 million on back order for the last 18 months, the last lot he got was 5000 12 months ago.
