Ammo and reloding
So for those of you who are aware an easy online place to search for ammunition is called AmmoSeek.com. It’ll even give you a price per cartridge I believe.
I bought myself a reloading press after reading a reloading book 2 years ago and insisting that I would never get into such a ridiculous endeavor. I am in a few thousand so far. The frustrating part is there’s not a single primer to be found anywhere at least online, and I can’t find a single brick and mortar shop near me that sells anything related to reloading except for pawn shops that have undisclosed Supplies that I have to come in person to see what they have. GunBroker was auctioning them, primers, for 2 to 3 times ordinary price. I just hope when all this blows over, if this blows over, that I am able to use my reloading press. It’s sitting there like a Ferrari without any gas.
Unfortunately I had this misconception that I would be able to reload 5.7 x 28. Apparently it’s very challenging particularly for this cartridge for many reasons. Is there anyone here reloading this ?

Are you reloading pistol calibers?
May I suggest if you find any primers you can use in the $50-60.00 range grab them. From what I have seen that is now the "cheap bargain low price with $75-100.00 the new reasonable price
I know its high but as you mentioned GB is insane sometimes over $200.00 a brick
With none becoming available the dilemma is this:
I have all sizes and want to keep them but if you offer stupid money I will sell some.
Those of us that have primers will not part with them unless the price is so good we can't resist.
We don't have to sell them and you don't have to buy them
Another suggestion is being at Bass Pro and/or Academy 30 minutes before they open every single day and hope some come in
If you are going to post about primers it would be smart to mention what size you are wanting

I started reloading decades ago to save money. Back in the day, one could save serious money by reloading. Not so today, others will disagree but that's what I see. That and I got bored to tears with it so the press and dies sit in a box in my garage. I did end up with some uber accurated ammo though. Ammo quality and variety has changed significantly today so, for me, I guess I need to get off my butt and try to sell the equipment. FWIW.
PS: Just think where you would be if you were making your own primers right now. If others can do it, so can you. Just an adventure, LOL....

Prior to this current shortage you could only save around $3.00 to $4.00/box of 9mm, but you could save more on .45ACP and .380ACP and a bunch on other cartridges.
But I'd tell anyone to wait to get involved in reloading. You just can't seem to get primers at this point.
