    In ontario there only seems to be 3 main places to buy primers, I was interested in buying some Cheddite 209 primers and just wondering if there was somewhere else to buy the other then the 3 main places?

    "other then the 3 main places?"

    Is one of these places Humason?

    That's where I buy WW-209's, don't know if they sell Cheddite, though.

    I expect to stop in there on Wed., I can ask.

    I drive right by there several times/month on business and make a "pit stop".

    If it works out that I can stop in, I will ask.

    I would guess that Cheddite Primers come from Challenger Ammo in Quebec. He likely imports them. Just guessing.

    Lawry would be one thought.

    Out of curiosity, does hummason still make shot? Some if it made its way down here to western ny a few years ago, then I never saw any again. Any deals to be had on it (lawrence is 24 and eagle mag is 22.75 right now here in rochester).

    Lawry's sell Federal primers and may carry Cheddites too. They quit carrying CCIs a couple of years ago. Their phone number is 905-765-3343.

    Hummason's still drop shot and it sells for $26.00 CDN per 25 lb. bag currently. Bill Malcolm

    Just got back from my trip which took me right by Hummason's

    They do carry Cheddites, as of today, Jan 21, 2009, they are $31.95/1,000

    They are out of WW209's, I was told when they get them, they will be likely $47.00/1,000 (I bought some Cheddites, today)

    As to Skeet Man's question, yes, Hummason makes shot, I bought some for $26.00/bag today.

    It was $31.00/bag not too long ago, a gun shop I stopped at, today, was asking $36.95/bag. This is why I buy at Hummasons, since business travel takes me right by there on Hwy 403, it is just a couple minutes east, off the Copeland Exit (No. 52).
