I bought Lapua last time from Graf & Sons. I had bought some S&B ammo some years back and stored it in an ammo can. When fired earlier this year I had a good 10% or so with cracks at the base of the neck, into the shoulder.
So much for that plan, I trashed the balance as unworthy.

I have not tried the Privi Partizan so I cannot comment on it. Grafs is out of stock on it too. Not alot of help I know.

Hoping they get more in soon..

Having dealt with Sinclare for many years I patronize them as often as is possible/practical.. Of course now combined with Brownells they are both even better then before..

Periodically, Brassman Brass offers once-fired Winchester-headstamped brass; last time I bought some it was $40 per 100. He was out as of yesterday.

Everyone who loads for this cartridge - or would, if they could find affordable brass - should write to Remington, Federal, and Winchester and urge them to offer brass as a regular production item. Probably won't do any good, but...

Once upon a long time ago, I mentioned to a lumber yard salesman that his competition was much cheaper on the plywood I was trying to buy. He asked why I was not down there buying from them. I said because they were out. He replied, “we sell it that cheap when we are out too”.

I found two boxes of S&B today at a local gun store. They have reloadable cases.I'll probably shoot them up in the next couple weeks, and then I can reload my on loads.

I left my back order of Lapua brass in place with Sinclair, roughly $54 per 100.
Got a notice that they shipped it today.
