PREDAT0R Posted August 29, 2015 Share Posted August 29, 2015 (edited) Sorry, wrong location. mods please move to proper forum, thx Been away for awhile so I am just getting reaquainted with reloading and its enviroment. I am once again so close to acquireing my 1st progressive press but I am stigmatized by ending up with a $1000.00 investment sitting idol. My issue as well as probably many others is the availability of components. I am not flushed with $$$ so it becomes a challenge to spend wisely and capitalize on volume components. Calibers to be reloaded are .223, 45 acp, 9mm, 40s&w. For all pistol apps, I have loaded 99% of all pistol ammo with Bullseye with some limited use of unique. Bullseye is prefered but seems to be a no-go. For .223, I can find WW748 (wanted to try ramsshot or h335 but both seem to be elusive) and wsr primers and very limited flavor of bullets. I have loaded .223 with cci400 in substitution for cci450 without any pressure issues. CCi acquisition is so far impossible for 400 or 450. As WW does not have magnum small rifle primers, I question their cross compatability with cci 400. I think I seen cci 400-450 on another site in qtys of 100 so if I want to stay with familiar components I am looking at 2-3 hazmat fees, I think not. Is everyone facing what I just described or is there a source of components that does not have 80% of everything out of stock? I am basically holding up an order for a rl550 for this very reason.
