You need to start PMing that stuff to everyone but MO before you post it on the forum so we can all get a chance at them. :laugh:

I got an order in for 10k, now just to see if it comes through. Sometimes their order/inventory system gets behind and even though its instock, it ends up on backorder.

I'd send some your way, but I already promised the local sportsmans club that if I came across any primers, I would get them.

I picked up 1k of Fed small pistol primers locally yesterday, and they got 10k+ large rifles in stock too. Maybe just maybe things are starting to become available again.

Everything around here is depleted. BiMart, WalMart, SportsmansWarehouse, etc... Went to check WalMart on Sunday for .45 ammo, there was no pistol ammo to be found.

I am having a hard time finding cheap 55gr fmj.
I have been shooting frangibles the last couple months.

That would be why we switched to the 62gr for our match .223

I'm to the point that I am about to by one of those home swagging kits that you can make your own with 22 rimfire casing (which I have probably have a 55gl drum full) and lead wire.

If only I could find away to make my own primers within reason.

Maybe we should make a sticky somewhere for "now in stock.....not anymore" types of posts.

I just got 5k of the hornady 55gr fmj from midway. you simply cannot wait for them to come in stock. you have to place your order and they will only charge your card when it ships.
It took about three weeks

Dang Carter, I have had Remington 55fmj's on backorder at Midway since 2/20. They keep moving expected date back.. currently 5/18. You must be special... :p


On the other hand I order 1k of Remington bulk 55fmj's from Cabela's on 3/25 and they shipped on 4/2...

Carter is correct though, you have to place your order and get in line for product.

No their site says they have it in stock. We have so much stuff on back order from grafs, Midway, black hills, and others it is frustrating as all hell.

There is a huge frustration of not being able to get these components. But you know there are people who don't understand this is an Industry Wide problem.

I wish people would stop panic buying.

They are also the cheapest I can find, next to frangible.
