Nope, all out of Small Pistol (incl mag) and large Pistol mag... \:\( All others are still avail as of now. Very pricey but they do have some. Add the Hazmat fee and shipping and ouch! The salesman of the year is still working. Lucky for me I have plenty of primers that I bought at a reasonable price. Thanks for the heads up. I do have a Uncle who needs some Lg Pistol and 5000 of them for around $160 is 3 cents a shot! (just for the primer...) At least they are avail. Bill

How do you like the Wolf primers ? Any comparisons to Win. or Fed. stuff ? Just curious . BTW the Wolf 12Ga. slugs are a bargain - good stuff .

Aren't Wolf primers Russian? If so, I wouldn't touch them.
They are indeed made in Russia. BUT, they work, are/were available (unlike CCI, Federal, Winchester, et al) I like them and have no grudge against Russian goods. Politics is a different story tho.

I've used CCI, Fed, Rem and Win primers along with Wolf. I find no difference in performance or usability. The Wolf 5.56 primers are a snugger fit in my 5.56 cases tho, which I consider a good thing. I've used Wolf SR, 5.56 SR, LR and LP primers.

No problem with politics - they are more capitalist than we are now. I just haven't been too impressed with Russian workmanship and quality control, and I've seen a lot of misfires with their ammunition. If you are having good luck with their primers, though, great.

What is a primer I haven't seen them on the shelves for a long time.
You NEED to move. They are starting to stay on some of the shelves here for more than a week.
