Not sure if anyone is interested, but Ballistic products is booking back orders for Cheddite primers due in late March, early April. They will notify when in stock and then ship. I asked about Winchesters and others. They said they do not expect any other brand for eight months or more.

Yep, I'm waiting on the box that I ordered from them a month ago. Would greatly prefer Federal's but this will do OK. It will be interesting to see how this all ends up when the shortage is over -- what will they be saying on the news?

I should feel lucky. I ordered 2 boxes of Cheddite primers on 1/25 and they showed up today.

I have been on a notification list with four different suppliers, Ballistic Products is one, since the end of October and have not heard a word. Thank God my club was able to obtain Cheddite primers last month and I was fortunate to purchase some. Some much for being on a list.

Had you actually placed an order and given a CC at Ballistic?

It appears that handloading is playing second fiddle to factory ammunition. Until the factory ammo shelves are full, we're not going to get much

My impression has been that the component business is basically over capacity with the majors. I'm sure the margins on loaded ammo is better than the component end so you are most likely correct.

Mine arrived today. My complaint is over. Ordered about 1 month ago, and probably the most expensive components I'll ever buy. Shipping was almost 2x the sale price.
