Fed 150 Primers

My Nosler reloading manuals have my .45 ACP loads using Fed 150 primers.

Is this a weird primer? Sportsman's Warehouse has none....don't even list them in their inventory.

Did Federal make some other new primer to take the place of the 150?

They're listed on most sites but grafs list them as temporarily unavailable from the manufacturer and out of stock everywhere else I checked other than Midwayusa. I don't know if that means that they're being discontinued but I'd be surprised if they were. In the meantime, you should be able to sub one of the other non-magnum large pistol primers. Start low and work up.

150's are just LPP (Large Pistol Primers) you should be able to find them readily available, however it's a LPP so feel free to use Winchester, CCI, S&B, etc. in the large pistol variant. Nothing critical when it comes to pistol primers.
