For those of you living in central Pa. Grices Gun Shop in Clearfield Pa. just received a shipment of large rifle primers. Price with sales tax is about $37.00. They have CCI, Remington and another brand.

37.00 a 1000 isnt to bad when some douche bags are asking closer to 50.00bucks a 1000...its such a crock that primers would go up this much after not seeing any for almost a year!...WTF gives?it just isnt cost effective anymore to reload your own ammo,unless your casting your on bullets,and that is just barely better then breaking even(IF USING GASCHECKS & FULL POWER LOADS)....so all us handloaders need to just stop buying primers all together for just 1 month...and watch the prices fall back close to where they once was a year or so agoinflation is one thing but going up 30% more on primers thats highway robbery....and i wouldnt doubt that some of the ammunition companys are the cause of this...because if the people 320million+ gun owners in america are buying all these guns....why aint we selling this number in ammo X 50?....so they will just make the prices of theyre primers go up...it just aint right...well atleast thats how i see it.....BULLS**T

50 dollars for primers is pure horse dung! ive been ordering primers from midway when they have them. with shipping and other chargers it comes out to about 36 dollars for a thousand if you buy enough of them.

Reloading components are still in very limited supply in some of the stores that I haunt. If I travel about 60 miles north Roseburg Gun Shop generally has a good supply of powder, primers, bullets as well as some very good inexpensive bulk bullets, FMJ's and hollow points and they also had a lot of once fired brass. I just lucked out yesterday when a gunsmith friend asked me if I wanted to buy two boxes of a 1000 CCI500 primers for $20 ea. At the peak of component shortage one guy told me he was selling 1000 primers for $100 due to what he had to pay, I'm sure glad I wasn't that despirate.
