Good luck on that one.
I order 4 one pound cans from MidwayUSA a week ago because they didn’t have large cans. They are now unavailable with no backorder. I spent several hours looking and there is very little. I also ordered the same number of cans of W231.
MAN ITS NUTS OUT THERE.

At this point I think your best option is to place a back order with a seller that accepts them. The longer you wait, the longer the time to ship.

If you live in NE Ohio, I have several recommendations for you.

I am not seeing that anything is really hard to get right now. I just went to the shop this week and he had everything on my list. He said the only thing there is a run on is IMR4350. Cant figure out a run on 4350, but guess someone is hooked on it.

Midway has a bunch of powders available right now. I didn't even bother to check because they are silly to order from. They will charge you a HAZMAT for both primers and powder if you order both.

I found nothing, I usually purchase in Ohio when we travel to spend time with relatives, both stores I usually purchase from are out of IMR4895/IMR4064 and W231/HP38 at this time. I didn't ask about primers but would assume those are gone also.. Shortages in and of themself will encourge people to purchase in large quanities when components become available again, to bad..
