Yea, prices are nuts but they are available. I'm sure they don't show up on Biden's CPI !

Lucky you could get some. Primers are no existent down here. I heard one importer say it would be 2025 before they even start looking at back orders. I have plenty of magnum match and large rifle match primers. Could do with a brick or two of small rifles though.

They are a hit miss for availability here too. Just lucky to be still firing the 215's that I bought in the late 90's also have 9.5 Rems bought in the same period. Right now my count is about 3000. We all know that don't last to long if you don't hit that magic load when developing.  My personal worst is 70 before the magic one showed up.

Just looked in the sports shops here and they are sold out or a minimum $20.00 for a 100. If a guy would have known this would have bought an extra 5000 back when they were $32.50 a brick. Oh well all I can do is enjoy what I have in supply.

At least you guys have some. There are next to no primers down here in Aus. One importer says they won't have cleared the back ordered stuff until 2025! I have plenty of Large rifle magnums, enough large rifles but may be a bit short on small rifle ones by that time. Oh well just means I will have to use my Weatherby magnums for every day shooting. Bring on hunting rabbits with the 30-378 and 130grn Speer HP's!!  ;D
