That's the thing.
This one guy at my sportsman's club, he only buys when he 'needs' them. He never plans ahead.

I've tried to tell these guys - when you see a good price, forego the lunch or dinner 'out', and buy a few bricks of components, instead.

This guy's tried to 'hit me up' for 2k primers.
(He's 'borrowed' from others, and never repaid.)
I've learned my lesson. . . . I got to watch out for ME. There's no tellin' when I'll get the primers returned.

(Granted, there are a few of us that have a 'co-op' and we look out for one-another, including buying/picking up supplies.
The 'one-way guys' are usually on-their-own.)

NEED A GOOD GUN? See your local ATF (AKA F-troop) agent. He will get you one fast and furiously.

I found a reloading shop that had primers, a few powders and some bullets. I drove 75 miles each way and spent $1500 of my mad money and stocked up. I was buying for myself and several of my shooting friends. I did pay a heavy premium on both the powder and primers, but I manged to get them. The primers were $200+tax a case. The 8# jug of IMR was also $200, but what are you going to to do in a situation like this?

Do tell! I've looked all over Tucson and haven't had any luck with primers or powders. Murphy's was supposed to get a shipment of powder this past weekend, but when I called today, they didn't have anything.

These folks have them in stock but be ready to pay a premium:
