I can find primers, just not the ones I need.
Any particular ones you are looking for?

Magnum and benchrest primers seem to be available in my area.  I was at one place that had Winchester LR primers.  I mightest go have a looksie to see if they are still available.  I did buy a box of BR but they were expensive.

Just about any large rifle primer works, but i would like CCI 200 or Federal 210M. I live not far from two large stores that sell reloading stuff, they told me that so many people are worried about the new administration that they are hoarding ammo.
In consequence, manufacturers work 3 shifts to make loaded ammo, hence the primer shortage. When these stores get ammo or primers they sell in one hour or so.
I think that this is bordering on paranoia.

I did hear on the news that there is opposition to the assault weapons ban in both parties, seems like a few dems learned from the past.  Don't get your hopes up, but it was a glimmer of hope.

I believe Knob Creek has both Fed 210M and CCI 200. At least they did last Friday.

You are lucky. It seems nobody in my area can get rifle primers at all. I was in two "competitor" stores friday. Two of the largest chains in the area, and a large gunshop, and all of them only had pistol primers. They told me not to bother asking when they would have more.
