Another Components Update

    Well, my local Wal-Mart has consistently been getting in a fairly steady flow of CCI primers for about the last month or so. I managed to snag about 6K worth of SP and today I picked up 4K of LP. I was happy about that because I was down to only 500 after what I loaded earlier today. The price was about $30/K after tax.

    They also had plenty large and small rifle, and a TON of shotgun primers as well. The powder was also plentiful.

    I plan on getting a few more pounds of powder and whatever primers I can find the next time I am there too.

    How are things looking around other parts of the globe? Is local supply starting to come around, or does most everybody else order online and play the waiting game?

    Here in Utah I can get anything I need from any shop and for good prices. #29.99 per/k for primers and $18-20 for powder. It's been like that for awhile now.

    Yes...They also carry a variety of bullets, various presses, and all of the accessories for reloading. They have for as long as I can remember.

    It must be a regional thing. I've never seen that stuff in ANY Wal-Mart in AZ.

    That is what I figured too. I have heard from other folks their Wally-Worlds don't carry components either. That really stinks. I hope the ones around here never stop carrying them.

    Not around here, either! Ours barely have ammo! The Obama Nazi-types have apparently seized control. :supergrin:

    For a while federal primers were the only ones available. You might have to take tour third choice in powder. Bullets never went away.
    Now you can get anything you want around here. The price is still high but you can just walk in a pick something up.
    Striped lowers have drooped in price. You can pick them up now cheaper than before Obama was elected. Hopefully reloading components will follow.
