Here's an article quoting Vista:
https://gunandsurvival.com/2020/11/12/r ... e-than-1b/
The gist of it is that Vista has a 1Billion dollar backlog for ammunition. They believe it will be a year before they are caught up. If that is true, then reloaders are in for a rough patch, for sure, as powder, primer and projectile capacity wlll be going to factory loaded ammo.

Wonder if joe and the ho will do what they can to ban or make ammunition harder to get "if" they are crowned the new king and kingette? Vista might want to keep all that new machinery running 24/7 and sell, sell, sell before the brakes get put on. Interesting times ahead for sure.

I found a small shop that had 8000 Winchester 209s for 29.95$ a thousand. I asked if there were a limit on how many I could buy said no, well I did good.

During the previous primer shortage 10 or so years ago European primers came
in to fill the void. Where is Nobel Sport, Fiocchi, Rio and Cheddite now?

Out of Stock. All the others as well too.

Ballistic Products also had Fiocchi primers in stock a couple of days ago. I was able to pick up 30,000. Price including their ridiculous Hazmat fee and shipping came out to $34 per 1000. They sold out after 2 days.

Midway USA had Winchester primers in stock about 10 days ago and then sold out quickly, then again 2 days ago they had more, and I know several guys that were able to order the 20,000 limit including my brother. They sold out within 24 hours.

Primers are showing up sporadically, you just have to be "Johnny on the spot" to pick them up.

Without putting too fine a point on it, maybe part of why there's a primer shortage is that people are buying 20 and 30,000 at once. That's gotta be a couple year's worth.

The way I see it is now all the guys looking for primers have 1 less person to compete against for a while. I'm sure down the road I'll be kicking myself for not buying 60,000 when I had the chance at that price. I'm already doing that with rifle primers, which are now selling for 3-4 times what they were a year ago when there was an abundance.

That's the ONLY way to buy them if buying them online, so the hazmat don't rip ya a new one.
