A shooting buddy ordered 5000 four weeks ago via CC and they arrived yesterday, not cheap by any means but he needed them for ATA trap shooting next month. I hope those I ordered yesterday arrive late March-early April in time for the Southern. Fingers crossed.

I haven't reloaded in years, so am completely out of step with prices for components these days. I've heard some outrageous quotes for 25-lb. bags of lead shot ($60-65 !!), but what are primers going for these days that there almost unobtainable?

Kevin,

I paid $28 for a 1000 cheddite primers. Winchester 209s are going for about $38 per 1000. Prices are up, but not like other ammo. The biggest issue is the HAZMAT fee and shipping. However, my gun club doesn't carry cheddite primers and I use them for 2.5" reloads.

You can use any primer for 2 1/2" reloads. I feel very lucky. The other day I found a second five thousand Win primers. I knew I had one and then over in the corner the second one appeared. My problem now is if I help out a friend, what do I charge ? What I paid [ 135/5000 ] or the newer prices ? I don't want to rip anyone off, and yet what if I run out and have to buy some myself at the new inflated prices.

Just got 2K from BP. They are "trickling" them out I guess.

my local dealer only has 209M primers. Can these be used in these vintage guns? I load reloads at 1150 fps or less in my sxs's.

Does anyone know where you can order them back ordered? I know that's not a solution, but it's less frustrating than not being able to order or get in line anyways. I ordered some from BP and when I called to ask why my card was charged before shipment, he said "We're expecting some in April to June..." That's quite a window!

Interesting. I did the same, was charged the Haxmat and freight but no merchandise. When I called I told the fellow I talked to that is was not common practice to charge freight on something not shipped. They mysteriously "found" a couple of boxes of 1K and immediately shipped them.

I would not unless you can find a published load to your specs that use them. If i recall correctly the M is for magnum and they are hotter and should only be used where called for in reliable data.
