Federal 215 primers are available at Ray's across the bridge from downtown Dallas. They have bricks but be warned they're not cheap. They also have a smattering of powders. This global supply crunch has convinced them to get out of the reloading business, so what they've got now is it. Not going to re-up. Prices have soared for them same as us. Even at exponentially higher prices it is hard to turn a profit.

I for one was thrilled to buy some (even at a premium). First time I've seen them in the year+ I've been looking. Started reloading during that time (I know, terrible timing). Good luck!

The last time I saw primers in a store was last October.
The outdoor store I frequent has repurposed the shelf space that priviously held powder and primers to accommodate other merchandise and they have cut back their bullet section as well.

Seen primers at a store in Houston yesterday, limited to 100 primers, IDK exactly WTF a guy would do with 100 primers, like buying a 6 pack of beer, not really worth the effort

Bought 1500 CCI LRP at Academy about three weeks ago. They said no limit so I was an ass and bought them all at 7 dollars a hundred.

Shit I haven’t seen a primer for sale in so long I’m about to even stop looking. Empty cabinets every time. This shit is getting old.

I looked on my supply shelf yesterday and found 5000 large rifle magnum primers along with 1000+ small rifle and 3,000 large magnum pistol and 8000 small pistol primers.

The only thing that I am lacking are 357, and 44 hunting bullets.

I'll be happy with a 6 pack. If you get creative and shotgun em all you can have the same effect

You need to come spend some time with me my friend, we can get you out of that mentality! They wouldn’t sell 30 packs if a 6’er was sufficient!

I completely understand why, but the ones that listened to that were REMF’s

Once they have a fight with me they understand why they are told that info in that very order. Many were front line chaps I worked with doing linguistics. They all called me the cunning linguist

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
