    After today, it's all historical.

    Not sure about other primers, but 209s are getting hard to find around here. I've been lucky and managed to pick up about 1,000 these past couple of weeks. Had to travel to 4 different stores and buy them singly (1 pack of 100each). So far the prices aren't too bad. Spent around $8-$10 per hundred. One store in DE was gouging like crazy ($15.50/100), so I didn't buy any there.

    I doubt I'll need any more since I'm only going to use them in my Diablo pistol and I doubt I'll be shooting that very much either.

    Since I no longer reload (I have all the components and equipment, just stopped reloading years ago), I have about all I'll need for the next 10 or so years.

    On a similar note, WallyWorld no longer has ANY ammo or shotgun shells anywhere in their stores around here.

    Most of the shotgun shooting I do is with BP, and I have enough shot and powder for that.

    All in all, I think I'm set up pretty well with ammo, primers, and powder. Still. I miss being able to pick up a box or two of ammo from WallyWorld whenever I grocery shop there.
