I don't buy factory ammo much anymore.

But if anyone can think up a use for the plastic primer trays, I'd be delighted! I thought about using them for wall decorations, but they're tedious to glue up, one at a time.

I use mine to hold reloads. I use them and the boxes that go with them for reloads of the same caliber as what was originally in them. I put stickers on the boxes with the list of components and powder charge.

Our range master saves them for me, witht he carboard boxes. I use them for my reloads. Easy to store large quantities when they are in uniform packaging. 1000 rd cases stack neatly in the shop.
