Default Are large rifle primers

Totally extinct or is anyone finding any? I think its total BS, here is why
primers: any brand of small rifle primers are readily available, why can't they keep up with large ones?
bullets: Hornady, sierra, hammer are readily available, why can't Berger and Nosler keep up.
brass: seems like the only brass available is the few vintage chamberings and the stuff that you read all the hype about 2-3 years ago.

Rumor has it that Commercial ammo and military supply chains are sucking them dry.

I bought 3k BR2ís and 2k Federals for my 6 creeds back in the spring, and havenít really seen more since then, but I also havenít been looking terribly hard either. I didnít terribly enjoy what I paid for any of them, but I paid what I had to pay to get them and now I have them, and will pay what I have to pay again when I find more. I am getting a bad need for Federal 215Mís for my new Big Gun, but I have 5k on order with a local shop, and I probably wonít like what I will pay for them when they arrive either. But Iíll have them when they come.

you can't even order them here, all the gun shops order them every week and seems they never come in, maybe once a year they get a couple thousand, but WHY does every gun shop have small rifle primers?
