While finding them online is impossible, search your LGS. Maybe have to drive a little. I stopped in a LGS on Monday and picked up 3000 small pistol. They had plenty but did have limits. 1000 limit per type. So I grabbed 1000 CCI 500 Small Pistol, 1000 FGMM Small Pistol and 1000 Remington No 1.5 Small Pistol...I dont need them at all as I have plenty but Ill buy them whenever I see them. They were normal retail pre crazy pricing too.Right now it's one of those things if you need them then you gon GunBroker pay 100 per 1000. Or just wait till they get i stock. Everyone saying they'll be oos for a long time because ammunition companies get first dibs.
I have enough to get me by but definitely starting to shoot less.
As you're looking at local gun stores, keep in mind you can use Small Rifle or Small Pistol. I actually use small rifle primers in my .38 light loads. No real increase in velocity but does improve SD/ES.desperately seeking small pistol primers in stock
I can’t find it but someone posted a paper on here about the charges and similarities/differences in primers. From what I read, small pistol and small rifle were very similar, most of the difference was cup thickness.Small rifle for pistol? Never heard of that.
If only you lived in Ohio lol... I would take some off your hands. I don't suppose you know anyone that can ship hazmat ehh?Thank y’all for the explanations. I’ll have to explore this option further. I have more srp’s than I know what to do with for the foreseeable future.
This is in Canada homie....Lil expensive, but not too bad if you’re desperate
CCI primers are highly evolved products because we continuously test and improve. Today's CCI primer is more sensitive, easier to seat, and more compatible with progressive and automated loading equipment than even before. CCI primers have always incorporated modern non-corrosive and...www.bullseyenorth.com
And quite a bad idea at that. Last kaboom I saw was a guy who loaded up his CZ racegun with max load Titegroup and subbed small rifle primers. Blew the extractor out of the gun and both grips cracked. Further inspection showed a cracked chamber. It is unlikely this was a double charge... the 9mm case isn’t big enough to hide it.Small rifle for pistol? Never heard of that.
You say, "quite a bad idea" and your example is a dumbass who's loading at, or above max charge weights and then changed primers without reworking his load. That could happen by just switching primer brands, let alone types of primers.And quite a bad idea at that.

I know my light loads with .38's and Titegroup, I check every single case. At 3.0gr of Titegroup, I think I've gone 4-5 times doubled before I filled the case...obviously that was just setting up my powder measure.You could easily fit a triple charge of TiteGroup in a 9mm case, and double without noticing at all....even with 115gr projectiles. I put so little in for my 165gr projectiles I have to double check to see if there’s anything in the bottom before dropping the projectiles on there.
