    I was at Sportsmans in my area today. They had primers, surprisingly, so I bought some. No SPP though.
     

  4. I am expecting this to take 6 months to work itself out. Maybe a little more. This is why you buy in bulk.

    :agree:
     
  6. Yeah smells like, taste like, looks like 2008-2009 all over again.

    Powder valley seems to get shipments from time to time, but you can't be too picky on what you buy. If you insist on Remington then you may have a longer wait. But if your opens to Remington CCI federal then you odds go up.

    Had good luck with Graffs as well.
     
  7. Yep, only new guys are out. Store them right and they will last for decades, stock up when you get the chance.
     
  8. what is the best way to store primers ?

  10. Make no mistake this is above and beyond what 08-09 was.

    I was clicking around the net last night,went to more than a few sites and it's a wasteland.

    One major distributor had Zero in the way of 22 long rifle,oh they did have some supply of 22 shot shell and some CB caps and shorts.
    This same company during 08-09 while they may have not had your favorite,they did have 22 long rifle other than shot shell.
    This is nothing like 08-09. SJ 40

    I've been able to find LPP's locally but SPP's have vanished.
    Luckily 95% of my reloading is LLP.
     
  12. I got this email from Patricia at Precision Delta...

    "Alan
    Below is an e-mail I am sending out but am behind on sending e-mails as well! Please let me know if you must have them for a match or class and we will try to get them to. I am so sorry for the delay.

    Hello - thanks for your bullet order placed online through our website. We were closed from Dec 22 - Jan 1. When we returned on Jan 2 we were swamped with orders Since orders have been coming in at such large numbers we cannot ship them out as fast as they get ordered - a good bad problem!

    I am e-mailing to let you know we are behind at least 6 PLUS weeks on our shipping BULLETS and 2-3 weeks behind on shipping AMMUNITION. I apologize for just getting this e-mail to you but needless to say I am overwhelmed with e-mails as well!

    We will ship your order as soon as we can."


    I usually keep my supply shelves well stocked but this was in response to my usual order to keep ahead of the game (so to speak). It's just an idea what is happening all over the country with most all bullet, primer & powder suppliers.

  13. Unless you just started loading for a new type. I have enough SPP for a year but since I did not get an AR until recently so I never purchased any SRP, but yeah anyone who has been doing this a while and did not buy in bulk for what they use is not sufficiently prepared

    You've been reloading long enough, I have NO SYMPATHY for you.

    When Obama got elected in 2008, we went through this same thing. With the 2012 election, you didn't think possibly it could happen again? A smart person would. I'm sitting on 20,000 primers right now, I'm good for over a year.

    For anybody who has been reloading for the last few years and didn't stock up.... shame on you and you have no room to complain or whine.
     
  15. Got my LPPs at the bike shop I normally buy reloading supplies. They were out of SPPs.

    .
     
  16. Shhhhh....don't tell anybody. :cool: I get my stuff there too.
