Hi I'm trying to find small rifle primer and am having an extremely hard time finding anything. Has anybody had any luck or have any suggestions? There's a lot of scammers out there anymore. 

Thanks for your help

    I have found loaded ammo in several calibers, brass, bullets, even a little powder, but no primers yet down by me.
    Welcome to the forum.What are you planning to load?

    Gunbroker is about the only place you can reliably find some primers.  The prices are still high but not as high as they were during the height of panic.
    I’m baaaaaaaaack… 😬

    First post asking about primers! Well they are out there, as Wambli said gun broker. Most of us have our stash,but don’t share well…..🤣
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I have had decent luck at Cabelas (in store) but it is a lot of miss with a few hits.

    They are starting to show up on Midway and Brownells but you have to check every day and pay the hazmat fee.

    Good luck.

    I have found them in stock at cabelas and once at academy. But, like Fester says above- be prepared to make a few trips. 

    Another suggestion is to check small town shops. 

    Right now, primers are hard to find
