    Went to the reloading supply today, Got a pound of powder, and much to my amazement. 500 primers for 5 bucks a 100. They had new shipment of most everything this week. Sure am glad.

    5$ for 100? Why did you not just buy the box?

    I'll bet its the dreaded primer rationing! Lots of places around here have gone to 500 max per customer per day...

    Don't laugh, some places, even normal gunshops, are doing just that. Primers are just starting to trickle in, and for the time being, it's 2 flats a day! The same goes for 22 bullets. The way I see it, it's progress!

    Sad but true! Must actually have something in order to ration it!

    Depends on the shop in my experience. I walked into a local shop, he had tons of LRM primers with no limit, bought 1000( shoulda bought 2), another shop had a 500 per day limit. I am seeing lots more powder though.

    This is great news to hear of components starting to show up and not be bought up in less than a day. Perhaps the frenzy is coming to an end?
