thanks for your help everybody, looked for wolf or tula cant find them anywhere. heard there not importing them anymore. I have cci 250 and Winchester primers. but I asked a couple of local shooters and one sold me a brick. have my first 1000yard shoot coming up next month only 15 min from home. I'm glad I didn't have to start over with different primers. embork
The best thing about the Federal primer shortage, particularly the "match" primers shortage, is that I was forced to try other primers.
Switching to CCI match primers for many of my loads has made be a new customer who won't be switching back anytime soon. I also learned that Federal 215 (plain) primers shoot every bit as good as the 215M primers.
I've never bought a match primer, unless it was the only brick in stock in what I wanted... The best sub for a 215 is usually the wlrm primer... I don't like cci primers that much as they are a bit sootier... I do use them occasionally in less overbore chamberings though...
