    I need some large rifle primers but I'll be damned if I can find any at any price at the moment.

    It's all good now.

    I checked ammoseek last night and there was no .45-70 or .300 Blackout to be found, completely unavailable for both. I'm sure there are other calibers not available but I didn't bother to look. This is the main reason I've pared down my calibers to 5.56/.223 and .308 for CF rifles and 9mm, .357 Sig, and .38 special for handguns.

    I bet you would, if you don't have a .45-70 to feed. I would too.

    Actually 20 rnds. The mark up is because I won't require a muzzle.

    There may come a time when someone might pay $6.00 a round for that box of ammo.

    The 45-70's hit hard and even with body armor a person hit with one of those rounds might not survive. I have quite a few of those rounds ready to go and powder, cases and bullets for more but I'm short on primers although I do have some. I have enough to last me for hunting for quite a few years. When I've shot deer with a 45-70 they drop right where they'er at or don't get more that 30 or 40 feet. It only takes one round to do the job.

    I've seen a little 5.556/223 priced at .85 cents a round and up but I won't be needing any of that at that price. I stocked up a while back when it was costing a lot less.

    I've got quite a bit of 45-70 stored away, more than I probably need. I'm just surprised there's a shortage of 45-70, didn't think it was that popular of a round to clear off the shelves. Thought .223, 308, 9mm did that.
    life is good.

    Right now you can buy Garrett 45-70 $80 for 20, but the price has not changed in years. I have a few of the hammerhead boxes, but they were 540 grain (I call them pirate rounds), for pirates, punch big holes in boats.

    The price hasn't changed with Garrett. His Hammerhead rounds have hunted the big 6 in Africa with a 45-70.

    In short, buy Garrett for $80. Tell Osoab to piss off with his $120 asking price.
