    Ok so I haven't shot much since this crazy shortage because I don't have any 210 federals for my .260/308/6.5 284. I have everything else but primers. What is everyone else doing? Are you guys using other primers that are easier to get or what. If I could atleast get something for my 308 I would be happy so I can start shooting again. Any input is appreciated. Thanks

    Changing primers can affect a load dramatically.
    So I buy big numbers in-lot for primers. Atleast 1000 at a time.

    I know, this doesn't help you...

    If you do some looking around, you will eventually come across whatever it is you're looking for. Product is still moving fast online, especially on primers, certain powders and bullets. I suppose it depends where you live and how many guns shops / big retail stores are in your area but stop by...never know what might be in stock, especially during the week when alot of folks are working.

    Every time I see the shelves start filling again they disappear a few days later. It will end when the hoarders credit cards fill up. I've been able to get anything I want through all of this b.s. by watching/waiting for it. I haven't needed much as I do keep a few hundred rounds worth of inventory for everything.
