    I was doing a search tonight for some Federal 215M and clicked on Cabelas Canadian website and they have 215m's in stock. If there is an online store based in the United States that has dersireable primers in stock I haven't found it. I've had 10,000 on backorder for what seems like an eternity. Seems strange to me that you can buy them all day long in Canada but can't seem to get a whiff of them here in the states, at least on the internet. Our local reloading supplier never has them on shelf when I'm in there. I have enough primers, small and large, to last me through this year but I hate getting this low.

    Its funny you say that, i live in Canada and we just got our hands on some 215M's a couple months back at most and we hadn't seen them in a long time as well! I dont think either Canada or US are flooded with anything right now and its making it really hard to have fun in this sport :p hopefully your able to find it soon! i just picked a couple thousand up myself, if you have H-1000 id gladly do some trades, dont know how your doing but im hurting for powder!

    I have found that ordering powder and primers here in Canada to be just way too expensive, the shipping charges for hazardous goods just kills us. So, what I do is every time I see any powder or primer (that I use), on the self I buy it! No matter when.
    Sept 2007 I bought a new rifle and when I went to pick it up the dealer had no primers and very little powder in stock. Since then I have scooping as I go.
