    Anyone else having a hard time finding components? I'm looking for Nosler 300 RUM brass and Federal 215GM primers and I can't find any ANYWHERE. Seems lots of components are getting hard to find... Is it just me? Any leads on the brass and primers is MUCH appreciated! Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    I was recently told that the war is taking priority with a lot of the components. I tried to buy some Fed210M and the dealer said he can hardly get them. Federal's priority is on military ammo right now.

    Sorry, I buy in large bulk whenever I see anything worth reloading with. Thankfully I only shoot my .300 Win Mag - but I have a couple 1k CCI 250 primer boxes stocked, and a couple hundred pieces of brass in storage.

    Sorry I can't help, but I've been stocking up for a while. A little birdie told me this was coming.

    You might be better off placing an order with powder valley and leaving it on back order,sometimes they get components and they are gone before thier website is even updated.

    I can't see how the war has anything to do with nosler brass. All there 7mm rm is gone also and the last time I checked the military wasn't using 7mm. I can't find any primers either.

    I never said the war was taking the brass. I said "some components" and more specifically that Federal's priority is the war effort. If a company shifts its production to fulfill a military need do you not think that the other items they produce will not be reduced?
