FYI, Optics Planet and Grafs have brass in stock. If I could find bullets, I’d buy it up and pick up a B-14 the LGS has in stock. Fortunately for my wallet, I can’t rationalize the purchase with no sense of when I’d be able to develop loads. In an any event, I need another rifle like I need another wife:). Hope someone can take advantage of the availability....even with the slow delivery these shop are experiencing right now.

I’d be skeptical of anything Optics Planet shows to be “in stock”.

+1 on double-checking Optics Planet "stock" status before buying, based on my personal experience.

All of that is irrelevant, unless you have lots of primers.


You did not "seen" anything, you "saw" it.
A "creek" has water in it, a "crick" is what you get in your neck.

True! This is one reason I’m slowing down on shooting, that and other commitments at the moment. I do need to go and shoot some new stuff I loaded for new load development. After that though, I may be able to load enough for bear season, unless powder and primers magically start to appear.

Got a 6.5 CM on the way. I bought 2 boxes of Lapua LRP brass from Midsouth and 8 boxes of TTSX 120’s from Natchez this morning.


You ain't about that life.

Yep. BTDT. They say they have it in stock, then after you place the order, it says not in stock. Those guys pizz me off...

Awesome. That is great. I'm glad to see some places are starting to have more availability. Those 120's should work very well in the creedmoor. Good on you for buying LRP Lapua as well. I only run LRP in my creedmoors. Works perfectly. Hopefully you have primers and H4350.

I hate having to slow down on my shooting. Something just doesn't feel right about that. I ended up buying a used (like new) stainless Ruger 10-22 so I can still shoot. Have 25,000 rounds of 22lr to burn up... That might take the edge off a bit. I hate this itchy trigger finger syndrome..

Just picked up some H4350 on Thursday.

Well, I’m good to go on powder for a while now. I think primers I’m ok n. I’ll run out of bullets in .264 and .284 before others though. Now if life will slow down so I can go shoot.
