Primer Notifications

Some online sellers of reloading supplies allow you to put in your email address to be notified when primers are in stock. Just wondering if
1) people have done this and been notified
2) after being notified, were you able to successfully order the in stock primers.

I got one from midway at 5am. I was up and looked and they were in stock. I checked again at 6am and they were gone. That was about a month ago and it was for cci br2 primers.

Midway has always notified me on back orders.
You need to be quick on the draw for it is:

First Come First Served.

I was lucky to be at my laptop when notified.
I immediately ordered 1K 5,56 FMJ and was accepted.
I then went back to check and Sold Out No Back Orders.

This was my experience. Got up at 4 before work, checked my email and midway had said WSR and WLR were in stock. Got 5k of each. It's just a crapshoot. Sometimes BassPro has primers in stock for 30 nanoseconds.

Midway notified me twice and by the time I signed on the primers were gone. Like other guys have said you have to be quick.

Totally useless in my experience. It also would not shock me at all if bots were being deployed against some of the bigger websites, too.

Notifications no. I did luck out and Powder valley had Win LPP in stock for a few maybe 6 weeks ago. Limit 1k. Ordered and then realized I wanted to add 1# of powder. Called customer service, got them to cancel my order and re-input as they couldn’t add to it.

They did have the primers in stock for at least the 15 minutes it took me to do all that.

They were out of stock half an hour later.

No notification. I just troll a dozen websites daily once or twice.
