Ok I heard about this a few days ago and so I did some checking. There is indeed a primer shortage. The supply house where I buy my reloading stuff said that they are getting in just a trickle of primers from Remington and Federal. They even reduced their normal order down to 300,000 primers to see if they could get some in faster, no dice. They did say that right now Winchester primers and CCI's are still coming in but the last time they ordered there was a little longer wait before they got primers from Winchester. Currently it seems that CCI's are the only primers that are delivering like clockwork. Remember primers stay good for a long time if kept cool and dry. Take care Be safe Poacher.
