Still waiting on 5K LP from Grafs......from April 1st. I call once in a while to make sure that the back order shows as open, it does.

Saw this at one vendor's site:
At this time we are not taking any new backorders for primers that are not listed here. We currently have over 50 million primers on backorder. If you currently have a backorder in place your order will be processed as primers become available. Once we begin receiving more primers from the manufacturers and are able to begin filling current backorders we will update the website.

Is there still that bad of a shortage?

In the past month I have seen small rifle, small pistol, large rifle, and large pistol in stock with "normal" pricing at two local dealers and a local gander mountain.

I haven't checked online much, but figure most of that is do to backorders being filled.

It probably depends a lot on where you are. Down here in America's grundle, the only thing to be found is shotshell primers and shotgun powders. OH, you're good to go if you need muzzle loading components, too.

It's pretty typical; you walk into the store, ask about primers, they laugh, ask you if you need shotshell primers, and you say no. They do have 1 pound of Hodgdon Varget though; it's 32 dollars. Then, you ask if they have any .22LR, they don't, you drive 3 hours to the CMP and they don't have any .22LR either, because everyone else had the same idea that you did.

Then you come home, find out that primers are in stock at Natchez, you put your order together, get all excited, your wife tells you it's ok to order them, and then you discover that they refuse to sell to your state and a few others.

You make a drink. Repeat weekly.

Wolly, I'm here in western KY where reloading is a plenty, so I was surprised to see the primers on shelf, even seeing a lot of ammo available as well with lower prices and prices on AR's/Ak's and the like have dropped as dealers have a lot more on shelf.

True, but they're they only place I have found bricks of the right primers. Also they're the only place I found that stocks True Blue powder. If you know other places, please let me know too :D

:) I figured I'd resurrect it rather than start a new thread.

Both out of stock now. They seem to last about a day and a half right now at Midway. :ponder:
