So they finally got primers in and some other powders. Girl on the phone told me that they're almost all caught up on backorders.


So the really good news in all that is I think the tide is starting to shift. I think by the end of 2009 things may be back to normal.


I only bought 5k small rifle and 5k large rifle primers. I resisted the temptation to go batshit crazy ordering a "stockpile".


Unless some anti-gun bills go through I'm going to give it a rest until things "settle down" then build up my supplies to where they should be......so I never get in the position I'm in now.


I now realize it's not unreasonable to have 40K plus primers on hand

Midway has had winchester 55FMJ in stock for some time now.


For plinking and 3-gun it's a great round/price. Loaded right (and if you get a meplat uniformer) it can shoot ragged holes at 100 yards. Lot of bullet prep work though (as there can be up to 1.5 grains weight difference in some of the batches)

yeah, my brand loyalty is killing me now.... waiting for 168gr hornady instead of just nabbing some of the sierra's that have always been available.
