    The 25% on primers will hurt.

    Actually it all will, nevernind.

    Just because it "feels good", doesn't mean it's best.

    If only there was availability.

    Availability of primers? Agreed, itís a problem.

    But it seems to me that general availability of ammo is better right now than any time since November. The pricing sucks, compared to even a year ago, but availability is definitely improving (no doubt due to the pricing).

    You can buy all the Win M1152 you want, if ~0.65/round doesnít make you gag at the thought. Accurate little suckers, though.

    I've got some and have a little more on the way. IMO that is a very impressive load. I've seen it group very well at 25 yards. It's 115 grains which my 1:32 twist Dave Sams special KKM barrel in a 9mm Operator demands (to shoot sub inch for 10 at fifty yards).

    And it's a peppy load. Nice meplat. That is my "war stock" load. I would lose zero sleep carrying that ammo if it came to that.

    We just moved out of town. I shot in my yard a wild hog this afternoon while home for lunch. I then thought about the fact that I may not be able to find any 243 ammo for my son to use this year for deer. We may be making ear and eye ball shots with a 22 for any more hogs.

    Glad I don't use Winchester primers. I know, CCI primers will go up in price like everything else. It is what it is. I'm happy I bought 8 lbs of 748 powder last year and beat the price increase. I saw this coming, just didn't buy the primers I should have when I bought the powder. I expect primers will be $40 a thousand when they get caught up. And powder, who knows what that might be?
    In the P-F basket of deplorables.

    I happened upon quite a few boxes of this at a great price at Academy right as covid hit last year. It was, and still is my backup plan if I ever have to roam the wastelands looking for the last few rolls of quilted 4 ply.

    But...but...all the folks on the interwebz said that the reason for the M&P 1.0's accuracy issues was that the 1 in 18-3/4" twist was too slow to stabilize 115-grain bullets!
