Definitely no shortage over here on the east side.

The only shop near you that I am familiar with is Bass Pro Shops.  Did they have any?

Sportsmans Warehouse in Federal Way had some Federal 209s when I stopped in there recently, but didn't have any CCI mag 209s.  Not sure if the Sportsmans closer to you down in Puyallup has any.  Worth giving them a call and asking.

What rifle are you shooting and why do you need 209 Mag primers?

Just use some Winchester primers or cci.   Never had a single issue the last 200 rounds or so.

You are absolutely correct - Western recommends the mag primer because of all the different breech plugs that are out there old and new.  If your optima has a CVA BH plug you will not need the Mag primer. If you have the Original 209 breech plug you might very well the mag 209.  Also id your plug the easy remove with your fingers BP? Or the older plug with the hex head?


This is a picture of the older CVA that I modified to shoot BH.  I opened the flash channel from 3mm to 5/32" and installed a Lehigh vent liner on the nose of the BP




Even the quick plug can be modified.

Cool! with the plug designed for BH you will not need a mag primer at all.  Regular 209's will work fine.  Again Western recommends mag primers because of the different breech plugs out there but if you have a BH plug you will not need them - they are really tough
