    Hi Lee,
    Been trying to find them here in sunny Dorset but to no avail!

    Need some for my chap to load my 270's usual fodder up!

    Lee, I have 900 sitting in front of me. I don't really want to get rid of them as they cost nothing to feed but if you get desperate let me know and I will lend you a couple of hundred. Not a million miles from you. JC

    I've got about 1700 if you want some mate. I may be up at Attleborough this weekend and will drop some in if I can.

    Nice to see people stepping in to help, but why the insistence on CCI? I used to use either CCI or Winchester LR primers, but when I realised I could get Sellier & Bellot, PPU and some Russian brand I don't know the name of cheaper and with no discernable difference in performance I switched in an instant. That said though, whatever brand I buy I now try to buy as many as I can afford at one time.

    Primer selection is important in load development. I have worked up a good load with Primer X, ran out and switched to Primer Y, and saw accuracy tank. The loads can usually be reworked for the new primers... usually just in time for the favored primer to show up again!

    As to Primers. I once posted here that you all should stock up as primer shortages are big in the US. I live 400 miles (a Montana stretch of the legs) from CCI's primer plant and I can't get 200's right now. I think the component shortages are catching up to you on that side of the Big Pond.~Muir

    I couldn't find any anywhere in my area, Hannams hadn't got any either, so i am now using Federal Match.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.
