Default Small rifle primers

I dare you to find any in a store or online. Go ahead. I dare you. WTF is going on? I just decided to take the plunge into reloading my .223 and I can't buy any primers anywhere. The Firing Line in Westland has 200,000 of them on backorder with no delivery date.

The only fucking business that MochaJesus has stimulated is firearms.

end rant.

Theres a reason I just bought a GSG-5. $10 a magazine for my AR is horseshit. $0.60 for a magazine through my GSG-5 is more like it. ;)

I really want to start reloading, because its cheaper, but I have this feeling that all the stuff needed to reload is going to sky rocket soon, kinda like the whole RYO tobacco thing, pretty much making it so its hardly cheaper to do it yourself.

well you could do like I do every time I go to the range ,I come home with more brass than I went with. I even pick up stuff I don't shoot .Figure it would have some trade value for the stuff I do shoot

Same boat in my neck of the woods, just reloaded (150) rounds for my .270 and used up the last of my CCI primers, nobody around here has any and I'm not paying Hazmat to ship them. I also used up the last of my 130gr Speer boat-tails...damned if everyone is out of those too.

Luckily 9x18 Makarov is still cheap, might have to pick up another 1000...$.17 a round makes pistol practice more inviting.
