Only place that I know of, is Cabelas. And that is just the LR. Price listed is 18.80per1000. Of course, there is hazmat of 20. If you order 3000, you can get free shipping.

This past fall, they were all over the place and at good pricing.
Seems the supply dried up. CCI BR2's are coming from Powder
Valley, along with powder. I like to buy both at the same time
to ease that hazmat pain.

Grant.....The shooters over in Europe have been using 
these primers with good results. Laurie Holland did an
extensive test with the LRP's against most other brands.
His sessions had the S&B's on top in SD's and ES's. Accurrate
Shooter has the complete write up.....Maybe Rardoin will
chime in. He did some testing but if I recollect, "No better,
No worse scenario".

Here a screen snag from the  article.....

I tested them early on in development of 6.5 x55BJAI/H4831sc/ Berger 140 Hybrid loads.  They performed as well as the BR-2's I had near 10,000 of so I stuck with the CCI's being they were more readily available.  I should revisit them since I have changed bullets and powder.  Hmmm.  I figured I was done with load development in this combo.  You Guys........ ::)  ::)  ::) !!!

I should have also noted, Holland did his work with the .308.
Now with Rardoin chiming in, let me add this.....I just laid out
$50 bucks for a brick of BR2's, and not adding in the hazmat fee
for the powder and primers ordered. The only place I did find
the S&B's was at Cabela's for about $20 bucks. Add in the hazmat
and still would have been cheaper then the BR2's. If the S&b's
do shoot as good as claimed, and the same, cost wise it's a no
brainer.....You guy's that live near a Cabela's need to go do some
shopping.....LOL
