Anyone waiting on primers?.

  1. Hate to rehash an old subject, but I just wanted to ask if anyone
    has any new info. on primer availability.
    I placed an order with Powder Valley back in early April for a few
    thousand small and large pistol primers and 2 lb's of 231.
    Nothing yet.

    Contacted them back in Oct. and they told me my order was still
    active, just did not know when it would be filled.
    No choice but to wait.

  2. Wow back in April? Bummer. Who did you piss off there?

    I ordered a bunch of primers (LR, 223, SP) and two kegs of powder back 12.21.09 and got it a week later. You probably ordered some exotic stuff.

  3. My backorder is at grafs, but I'm waiting on a bunch of CCI LP on order since May.
     

  4. Same here, my back order is still from May - for CCI SP/ LP - but all my Federal backorders already came. I guess we have to wait more.
     
  5. Has payment already gone through? If not, I'd cancel the orders as there are other sources for those items who have them in stock.
     
  6. Ordered 5K WLP's from PV on 10/26/09 and was E-mailed an invoice today showing shipped.

    I was at the local Gander Mtn. last week and they had CCI large and small pistol primers.

    $49.00/K.

    Gouge.

    No Thanks.

    Yea since January 2. It said on the site that it was in stock, but after I placed my order I got an email saying that it went out of stock :steamed:
     
  9. I wouldn't cancel the backorders. I'd order from some other place that has them in stock and keep the backorders.

    Primers keep for a long time, and this shortage illustrates nicely that there's a significant advantage to having more on hand than you might need immediately.

    I ordered 2000 from www.wideners.com of what they had which was the PMC. Got them in about a week.
     
  11. Pretty much all sizes are in stock around here but not necessarily the brand you may want. I took a chance on Wolf and picked up some Winchester. Usually I use CCI and I've found those but not in all sizes. The goal......buy whatever quantity of reloading components as my wife will let me get away with. I don't trust the supply or the government (present administration for sure!). Stuff on back order stays on back order!

  12. All I have to do is drive 10 miles and get all the primers I need. Unfortunately that usually means 1k as they want $40 for them. It's by far the largest reloading cost, even over my cast boolits.
     
  13. Ordered 10k Federal large pistol primers from Powder Valley on 11/23/09. Just receive shipping confirmation today.... Life is good!:cool:

    Sportsman's Warehouse is almost fully stocked lately around here @ $29-$31/K. That's not horrible with no shipping or hazmat.

    Getting those shelves filled back up with powder and boolits too.

    tons at Crossroads of the west show here in Utah over the weekend. Picked up 5k Wolf Sp for $125 cheaper than what I paid at Powder Valley 4 months ago.

    I can buy all the federal I want locally for $34.00 a thousand. But I still have 10 K on a shelf so I am good.
