federal primer shortage?

Why am I having a hard time finding anyone with 210M in stock? I hate to order from unknown sources online. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Finally found some

Of course it costs $58.00 for $20.00 worth of primers.I guess I'll wait and see if any of my local stores get some.

What's this world coming to?

Yep -- unless you really have to, you are better off buying locally. And, if you do have to have them shipped, it turns out to be better in the long run to buy in larger quantities so as to better spread out the HAZMAT fees.

If you have a fairly good relationship with your local guy, you ought to be able to have him order them for you when he makes his regular order to his supplier. I order Federals here 1000 at a time. They don't go bad if you take reasonable care in their storage.
