Anyone able to obtain primers of any kind lately? The situation continuous to get worse and I don't see it getting better anytime soon.

Nope, Nada Nothing.  I check online everyday all the typical suppliers and zero. 

 

Not willing to pay extortion prices on gunbroker.  So now we wait.

Sadly enough, they all seem to sell. A guy on LRH posted 4 boxes of Federal 210 primers for $750 and was finding buyers. If he shipped, they'd all be gone. We're in for a rough ride.

The primer situation will not get better for at least 2 more years.  Practically all primers from Vista and Winchester are being allocated to ammo production, which is backlogged 2 years.  As they increase ammo production, fewer and fewer primers will be available as components.

Stopped at a Bass Pro and also Cabela's on a road trip to Florida. Those stores are no longer keeping shelf space open for Primers or Powders.
