A bit of speculation on the un-availability of primers. It is my belief the Vista Outdoors President Jason Vanderbrink has created a primer shortage and has convinced/extorted Winchester and other primer sources to follow suit. The motive for this created situation is to induce/force the shooting fraternity into shooting factory ammunition. I am a retailer of reloading supplies and I have been unable to obtain primers since mid-2020. When querying my wholesalers, I am informed that they haven't seen a Winchester or Remington primer in two years, however, he has always been able to get CCI primers, but Vista Outdoors will only allow him to sell them to FFL 07 manufacturers and this situation has always existed. I inquired at another wholesaler who sells foreign made primers and I know he is selling them to one of my customers direct because HE is a shooting competitor of some minor acclaim, the wholesaler says he only sells to ammunition manufacturers (FFL 07). I am a FFL but a 01 (retailer). I pointed out to this wholesaler that by following this policy he is giving the reloading public a royal screwing. Now before everyone spouts off that there are new primer plants sprouting up all over the US and the situation is only temporary. In my opinion this only speculation; and is only a "pipe dream". If Sig Sauer, who is the alleged to have the first facility in operation, to supply primers to their own ammunition. Do you really think there will be primers for reloaders? No, they will use them in their ammunition fledgling production.
