CT in Greenwood got 209 primers in.Hey all,
As you've noticed, I'm looking to get into reloading, especially 12ga and .308. In my searching, I'm noticing, and I've also been told, that primers are extremely hard to get. Is there anywhere in the province where one can get 209 primers for 12ga right now?
Where is flint and steel?Flint and steel usually have some
The gun dealer has Chedite 209 in stock
Fed 209 muzzie stuff ?? if not, what kind and how much ??CT in Greenwood got 209 primers in.
Now I am not a shotgun reloader but I thought the 209 primers were one of the same? I will have to look at them when I am there next.Fed 209 muzzie stuff ?? if not, what kind and how much ??
No sir every one a bit different and each changes load pressures so have to be watched Muzzy totally unique Some muzzleloader specific primers like Winchester triple 7, cci mzl and Remington kleanbore etc. muzzy specific primers are a bit weaker than regular shotgun primers and don't create a hot enough charge for certain powdersNow I am not a shotgun reloader but I thought the 209 primers were one of the same? I will have to look at them when I am there next.
Yes, to get into reloading now is at times more expensive than store bought. I reload for stuff hard to come by or like a 44 mag, you can get many rounds from a tub because of the small cases. Three years now and I have not been able to replenish my stock. People mention the shop down Truro way. Went to him but he limited one item per customer, which is not going to enable you to make many rounds. Like factory ammo everything pretty well has doubled. 308 and 12 gauge ammo are the two cheapest to buy for right now.I am going to give my useless 2 cents on this Yes reloading is fun and a relaxing pass time However it is normally done when rare calipers cannot be found or one shoots high volumes of ammo and wants to save money
It is expensive to get set up properly and takes a lot of rounds to see any pay back
In the day the old rule was if not rare one should fire at least 10/12 boxes a year to make it worth while
The ones you are looking at 12ga and 308 would be some of the most common out there to buy for reasonable price and almost no one reloads 12ga any more since cheaper to buy the promo flats in the big picture
Especially now with the lack of components and the crazy prices of them if you can find any I cannot see how reloading will save money for you especially knowing just based on your love of dollar store shopping that is important
I upgraded my rifle gear almost 10 years ago to the tune of 2200 bucks that takes a lot of rounds to pay back anf forget shot gun an easy 20 grand there since as you reload you upgrade and want to try anything new out there IMHO Just something to think about
Like Ross sells 250 rounds of 12ga challenger for 100 bucks no way in hell could you reload 250 rounds today for that
There will never be a concern to secure a supply of 308 and 12ga if you have money to buy it But to each their own you rebel you and have never heard that one for someone to get into reloadingNot looking to save money. More about securing a supply that can be used longer in the future. Also looking to learn the skills for the future. Independence is going to be important soon.
BM..it will NEVER go back down again...that I can guarandamtee ya !!!A few years ago.… there was not a 308 bullet to be found on the South Shore. I was selling some of my stash, since at that time …. I didn’t own a 308. Now there is tons of it. I’m guessing people who owned 308’s, got rid of them for a caliber that was easier to find ammo for ???? Now, tons of 308 … and very limited 30-06. Starting to see more calibers on the shelf again. Seems to be lots of 30-30 again. CT in B’water has a good supply of 25-06 if anyone is looking. Lots of 270, and 6.5 CM. Even some 410 back on the shelf. 12g is everywhere.… like mentioned …. But getting expensive. I have a box of cheap Remington 12g, that has a price tag of 6.99. That wasn’t that long ago. Now, the cheapest I can find is $19.99 … and will likely keep going up.
Also having a stash is one thing knowing how to keep it is another CheersNot looking to save money. More about securing a supply that can be used longer in the future. Also looking to learn the skills for the future. Independence is going to be important soon.
