    OK - I'm beginning to believe that the ammo drought is almost history. I just bought 500 CCI Small Pistol primers at my local WalMart! :supergrin:They were $3.09/hundred (before Obama-rama I was paying $2.89) but they are at least back in stock! :cool:

    Dude, if you have primers at Wal Mart, you are incredibly lucky.

    Yup - I can buy primers, powder, presses etc. at my local WalMart. It's great to live in the land of the free. Or Utah, as we like to call it.:cool:
    I only bought 500, because I've still got 1000 or so on my bench, and I wanted to leave some for somebody else. 1500 will last me for a couple of months.

    Yeah, my Walmart doesn't even sell relaoding stuff & never has ammo. Good thing I reload & the internet let's me buy my primers for much less than the local gunshop.

    My Wal-Mart does not sell either,
    but I was always taught that guns and alcohol
    don't mix.

    I found a Wal-Mart in PA that sells reloading supplies. Bought 1000 small rifle primers while I was there. I was gonna buy some brass too but waited to long.

    I have never seen components in a CT Walmart. I have not even seen bricks of 22's in the past 6 months. Only thing on their shelves are shotgun shells and certain rifle calibers.

    Here's a cell phone pic from my local WM taken last week. There's scales and trimmers on the top shelf above the bullets and hanging stuff.

    Are you sure of that? My WalMart here in the flatland said no WM in CA could carry reloading supplies. (We were specifically talking about primers.) Do the WMs in Reno carry any? I figured I needed to bypass NV and go to UT!:faint:
