Got a couple of pounds of Magpro at Brownells. They have IMR4350 in 8 pounders, but I’m still too new at this to buy big jugs.
natchez has 550 sm pistol mag primers 450 sm rifle mag primers and 400 sm rifle standard in stock now. make sure you are sitting downAs a total noob to the world of reloading I'm trying to find trustworthy websites for buying powder and primers. So far every site that I've looked at that claimed to have some unicorn stock available wanted to be paid in bitcoin which made me a wee bit suspicious. All of them have turned out to be scams. The standard Brownells, Midway, etc never have anything in stock so anytime I see anything I stock on a site I'm immediately suspicious.
Can anyone point me towards some sites that are reliable or is that akin to giving me the GPS coordinates to your favorite honey hole?
Yeah. It’s starting to look like I’m going to have to rub some sticks together to make things go bang. I’ve got everything I need to start putting together loads except Bigfoot riding a Unicorn, aka primers.Rough time to get into reloading.... welcome to the jungle, lol
I thought the Federals were a bit hotter than the CCIs.Where are you located? I’ll give you (100) WLRM’s to get you started, but shipping them would be silly. I have 1 lone box of the WRLM’s and they’d be useful to you, to get started, but would just be a side-alley for me to go down with just the one box.
Edit: don’t overlook CCI‘s Large Rifle Magnums.. I just got a brick of them, and so far they are dropping right into my F215 loads no problemo...
If you're close to West Linn I could sell you a few Federals.I don’t want to put a dent in anybody’s stockpile, but I really appreciate the thought!
I’ve got plenty of quality factory ammo that will get me through the season. I’m looking for large rifle magnum primers (Remington 9.5Ms, WLRMs, or Federal 215 or 215M) to work up loads for a 270 WSM and a 300 WSM if anybody has any they want to sell. I’ll find that unicorn eventually.
Like so many cartridges, my experience is that it depends on the powder you use. But I normally load magnum primers in my .270 WSM.Awesome! You’re living the dream, haha, finding a brick of primers. They should be fine unless they got oil on them. I bought a brick of old F215’s at an estate sale years ago and they were great.
I don’t know if your WSM’s “need” magnum primers or not, maybe someone else does. I’ve always used them in my WSM’s just for drill. I’m told my 6.5 SAUM will run fine with regular rifle primers, and it’s only 6-7 grains less powder than the WSM’s... but IDK. At a minimum you now have great trade stock!
Damn…sorry for being a rookie jackwagon.So, 10 replies now that have nothing to do with reloading supplies being available and where to find them. Can mods please just shut the thread down? Hijacked again by the usual jack wagons.
It's ifish.........you get what you pay for. I think your expectations are a little too high if you're expecting real time product alerts from a thread here.Haha! Somebody knows the phonetic alphabet and has tender feelings. I promise I'll try and not be a Delta Bravo if you work at being less of a Charlie Sierra.
Joking aside, it was nice to follow this thread for product availability. While doing my mornings duties I could pull up ifish and check for alerts. An alert meant somebody found something worth mentioning. An alert now means u get to wade thru pages of unrelated conversation.
