    I got some by being diligent about checking online retailers throughout the day. It took me two weeks, but I was able to score small pistol primers. I came back from lunch and checked and there they were! Be sure to create an account and have all your billing information already entered. This way, you can 'Add to Cart' and checkout quickly before they are all sold out.

    I was in Scheels in Plano, TX the other day... they had SPP's. They are out there, you just have to be diligent. Online sources... setup alerts to be notified when they come in stock, but you have to be fast when you get notified.

    People wanting to BST supplies ought to list their home state with the message. I have lots of primers that I would sell or trade, BUT will not or cannot ship them to other states due to shipping regulations, or just the plain high cost of Hazmat.

    Agreed, I've offered what I can afford to part with at the prices I paid to local folks

    That's the truth. There sure are a lot of non-reloaders out there. A guy I know wanted to know how and asked me to teach him, so I did. His verdict at the end? Too complicated. Back to factory ammo. In his defense, he is in his seventies. Not much time to learn all of those little things I learned over the last 40 years.

    Unfortunately, now is not a good time to be looking for reloading components. Or just about anything else gun related.

    You have to watch various web sites like a hawk, strike quickly, and hope.

    If, and when, supplies get back to normal levels, be prepared to stock up and rotate your inventory as you re-supply.

    I think it might have been the screw up and bad things might happen aspect of it all.

    I think all young people should learn to make their own ammo. then they won’t go hoarding at Academy

    I just ordered a 45-70 Lee Loader! $28!

    my plan is to go camping here out west and hand load a few next to a slab of smoking ribs, and see how far my Ruger #1 can reach

    Well none of that has any context about who you want to be barred from buying ammo at Academy. Guess you're too young yourself by your post contents which suits me fine.

    I know not only I define myself as old enough to do so but more objective measures show I'm old enough. Done it before and I'll probably do it again. Reloading components too, powder & primes, past & probable future.

    Not offended honestly curious since your profile doesn't include your age.


    This is pretty restrictive, but it won't affect me personally and simple statistics sys you're likely in this range as well.

    Well there you have it you think you shouldn't be allowed to purchase ammo at Academy. All those numbers fall between 3 and 85.
