I talked to Cabelas yeaterday about my backorder for the Federal 40gr TMJ and the lady told me it has a possible arrival of January 12th. Who knows?

What I can't figure out is why FNH does not have the presses running 24/7 pumping out 5.7 ammo. They could push the pre-hording wholesale/retail price up by $10 a box and many people, including me, would happily buy it.

I might speculate they were running the stock of non lead free primer SS197SR out, since the stuff Cabela's has been selling the last couple days is LF 197SR

Looks like I'll be adding a new round to the singles.

I heard about ss197 LF, but I didn't know it was an eventuality.

Time to google pictures. Unless someone has a box they want to photograph? I don't see any online.

Cabela's has a little pop-up disclaimer that says "If this ammo is shipped with a lead free primer, it is only the primer. The bullet still has a lead core". No indication that the ammo was anything other than SS197SR. Of course, I didn't get any delivered, and I would be glad to be proven wrong.

Pictures already surfaced. There's a sticker on them that says lead free primer. Primer color is definately different. brass is stamped 12 as well.

Oh man. That IS a freakin crimp haha. I'll ask for a round from one of our guys from the forum when we go shooting. I just hung out with SpaceCoyote today. We went rock climbing, because there are other things to do than shoot. And I was tired of being around guns, because they remind me of the people spamming every post on my facebook and youtube.

It's sad that annoying factors actually is turning me away from the gun community/guns.

At least I have you guys, who are pretty legit. And then there's the 1% of mall ninjas, but it's better than facebook and youtube. :)

What? What posts, I've not even seen any that were annoying. No, I'm talking about the posts from all those companies selling PMAGs.

Wait. My 197 is going to have lead free primers? So it'll only be good for like...2 months, so worthless for my stash.

When it gets in I'm sending it straight back.

FROWNY FACE!

Just got my confirmation emails today 4 days after order. Not worried about it. Just glad I found some ammo at a good price :thumb:

Agreed - shoot it or sell it. You'll get more money if you sell it instead of returning it.

Or pull it down & fix it :skep:

"...fix it"? Removing a live primer? I've never done that because I'm afraid that the primer may ignite in the de-capping process. Is my concern misplaced?

Depends on how you're planning on de-priming it.

You shouldn't worry if you're doing it with the right tools/dies. Unless you're using a hammer and a pick. :lmao:


Nvm, the primer is staked. I have no clue.

I've deprimed live primers before, it's not really a big deal. Slow steady pressure through stroke & you should be fine. I've never had one fire - maybe I've just been lucky, maybe I'm just that good :p :lmao:
