Where oh where have all the primers gone?


Recommended Posts

Singing the blues. Ordered reloading dies for 38 special / 357 magnum. Thought I had a box of small pistol primers and one of small magnum primers but they turned out to be large magnum primers.  Doh! 

No one has any. 

I guess it’s back to big bore airguns until the shortage subsides.

It's hard to find primers period nowadays.  You might have to visit some gun stores out of state if you get the chance.  I was fortunate to stock up on Federal GM primers at a gun store I visited in Wyoming over a year ago that should last me for quite some time.

I've about given up for now. Switching back to big bore airguns, and casting and powder coating bullets. Tis a crying shame. You can buy primers on gun broker though at a 10x price. 🥵

Yes sir, Flint rock, the original (and only) reusable primer. Nice to know you will never be without something to go bang 👍

I also have the nipple conversion to use shotgun primers if I run out of caps.
