Default Online Powder/Primer retailers who still take backorders?

As I run low on primers and powder I was wondering if anyone know any online retailers who are still accepting backorders for primers and powders. The usualy suspects; Midway, Brownells, BassPro, Powder Valley all are no longer accepting backorders.

I place email notifications every where I can as opposed to backorders and watch this forum. People here have been great about alerting others to who has what. I've also gotten some good tips from "The Firing Line" reloading forum and others.

MidSouth will take backorders. Just know that their "Back In Stock" date is a number they pull outta their rears...I've had projectiles back-ordered for two months and they are listed as coming back in stock on February 7th...

I was surprised to find powder, primers and the dies that I needed at the gun store in San Carlos. I don't recall the name of the shop because I just stopped in while I was in town visiting a friend.

It was great, a guy walks in wanting to buy all the primers on the wall. The salesman gave him hell about hoarding and makeing sure that there is enough to go around for people that actually need it. At first I thought he was a jerk until I realized that there were still primers there for me to buy so I grabbed a thousand.

I'm looking for Varget and Unique (or 748 and 231). Also small pistol, small rifle, and large rifle primers.

Sounds like you are talking about Imbert and Smithers. I've been meaning to pay them a visit but I'm just never in the area.

Is this how the store front look like?

If you don't mind paying panic prices, try Bruno's shooter supply. Had a lot of primers in stock last week, but close to twice the pre panic price!

Try Natchez. If it isn't in stock, sign up for alerts.

I'm not super desperate for this stuff so I'm not willing to pay panic prices at this point.

I’ll check out Natchez, thanks for the tip shooterbill
