I can't find any small pistol primers, any brand, any where.  I could find some magnum SP primers which I have some of already, but no standard or match SP primers.

Do any of you know a ready source?

IF you have a Fleet Farm near you, they have a good selection.

If that's the case, then the primers are hiding behind the Reloader 19. Now if we can just find the reloader 19. I just bought my usual 1000 every month or 2 at The Bow Shop and I had my choice of Fed  win or CCI. They're gone that fast?

Just bought 1K each of three different size primers plus several pounds of various powders at Graf & Sons. Still have a good selection in stock. Good luck, Squid Boy

Try Midway https://www.midwayusa.com/  They list the availability in the on line catalog. Your order will ship the next day and you will have it in a week. Looks like a wide choice of primers is available.

I just checked Graf's, MidwayUSA, and Bow shop.  No small pistol primers, no Li'l Gun powder.

Bruno Shooters Supply has nearly all brands and all types in stock. In fact they are having a primer and powder sale.

I learned my lesson many, many years ago. I try to keep a couple of years (or better) of the primers that I use. Shortages are cyclic - "yesterday" it was the Korean War, then the Vietnam War, then the Obama years, and now it is the Pandemic. I have a large supply of bullet materials, primers, and powder. 

Basically, it boils down to "Take care of YOURSELF, Sisters and Brothers" or you too, will wake up to empty shelves and a sorrowful feeling. Store stuff safely, obey the local Fire Code as well as Federal Regs but look to the future. 

I made it to the range a couple of days ago, and you cannot believe how nice it was to get outdoors and BREATHE during the Pandemic. There was only one other person on the pistol range (outdoors) but it was a glorious day! Due to health reasons the past couple of years, I hadn't made it to the range for months. I was more than a bit shaky, but I ended up with some decent targets.

This would have NOT been possible, if I didn't have the means to cast my own bullets and reload!

FWIW

You are correct, sir.  I had asked them at Midway USA to let me know when primers and powder became available and they emailed me that they had some available.  They would only allow me one brick of 1000 primers, but I could get all the powder I wanted.  I found their hazmat fee very reasonable.

Dale, you took a step up after a little set-back -- but you were never out of the game!
