This shortage sucks

I'm down to 162 primers and 148 bullets for my 9mm, with only 500 or so rounds loaded up. Has anybody seen any improvements in local reloading component availability? I still can't get primers around here. Powder's not a problem, but I use Ramshot, and not many others do. I found primers online, but the shipping is as much as the products themselves due to all the HAZMAT stuff. I guess life could be worse, but it sure doesn't feel like it when I sit at my loading bench.

re: reloading and I will keep my eyes open for you...
Have you checked backpage.com? They let you post guns and ammo for sale, seen reloading stuff there also.

Ah, God bless Murphy's

They have a brick of Remington small pistol primers waiting for me. For any of you who visit Tucson, look them up. They are a small shop, but really jammed packed from wall to wall with guns, ammo, reloading, everything. They are the highest volume dealer in Tucson and yet again have primers when NOBODY else in Sierra Vista, Benson, or Bisbee had any. I'm a happy little school girl with tiny nipples.

Murphy's is wonderful

I got 1000 small pistol primers, 300 small rifle magnum primers, and 15 rounds of 00 Buck 12 ga for 57 bucks. FUCK YOU, GUNBROKER!!!!!

No, samD

I just called murphy's and they set a brick aside for me. They're great. Many gunshops are actually becoming almost hostile toward us reloaders, like it's my fault I'm the fifteenth guy today to call about primers. Murphy's is always polite and the guys behind the counter actually seem to know their shit, so I'll always check with them first.
