I've decided to start reloading, and i've read the Lyman manual twice now, and have most of the supplies to start, but was wondering if anyone knew where to find primers locally. Ordered some from Cabela's a while ago, called them to get a tracking number and apparently I typed my PAL number in wrong. Got that corrected now but it they didnt bother to contact me about that and i'll be waiting an extra week because of that. Complete didnt have any primers in stock. Anywhere on the avalon where I could find large rifle primers? The lee manual said to only use CCI or Winchester with their priming unit, so those would be what i'm looking for.
If anyone has excess of them around, and would be willing to sell me a package, that would be appreciated too (I do have a valid PAL and can show it, just typed the number wrong on cabala's last time...) Mine should be coming the 25th, but I'd like to get started with the press, got everything setup now.
Coastal Marine has primers.
Ok, great! I'll go up there later. The primers are the last thing I need now. Made a dummy round with no primer or powder last night to try out the press and dies. All I need is primers to start making legit ones. Will check coastal for the primers.
Picked up a box at Coastal today. Was out firing off a box of cartridges for the brass today, hopefully load up a few tonight. The guy at Coastal handed me large magnum primers first, realized and mentioned it to him (I needed large primers (not magnum)). Double checks are good.
