    Brownell's has Federal small pistol primers in 1000 and 5000 quantities. About 30 minutes ago.
    FWIW
    GOOD LUCK !

    So does Midway, if you want to pay almost 60 bucks per thousand.

    I’m waiting for this panic buying binge to end before adding more.

    Right now they’re showing $34.99 for 1000 #500s from CCI and $35.99 for 1000 from Federal. Unless you’re including the hazmat fee.

    Midway is “limit 1” so that makes for expensive primers.

    A few moments ago Mid South had CCI and Federal small pistol primers available, including case quantities. Good luck I hope you get yours before they run out.

    Of course I included the hazmat fee, part of the price....

    I saw this thread pop back up and started to get happy...then realized it was bumped.


    Looking back and saw your post and have checked in at Midway....same situation still ongoing....with a slight twist.

    Can order 1k of each size from each brand.

    I caved in the other day and did a 5k Midway order....had to mix the brands & types to get lpp, spp & srp. CCI & Winchester.

    Felt like an idiot, but needed to get them. My factory ammo is almost gone.

    :thumbs:

    That order was literally the only way it could be configured....unless I wanted to add lrp & lrm.



    I have a smallish assortment of Fed, CCI, Win, Rem.....just been getting what I could.

    I picked a rough market to attempt to procure components.

    It is what it is.

    Hoping it will get better, but preparing as if it won’t.

    Definitely still a rough market, did my “weekly” look around for availability & deals today. No deals to be found, most powders that I use even AR Comp were available althoughsll $5-10 more than last time I bought them earlier in the year.

    Primers seemed to be sold out apart from some bench rest or highly over priced.

    Add to that sites placing quantity limits on what you can order - which I appreciate why & is a noble gesture but when you have to factor in both hazmat & shipping it really ups the prices.

    Maybe my shooting will improved when I'm forced to use those expensive "match" primers.

    The time to buy components is when you can.
    Unfortunately, that was some time back.

    Sadly, I missed the boat on small pistol primers but I am set for large pistol and rifle. I guess I will not be breaking in my new Supers this summer after all.
