Default Primers and Powder

In several threads I have read the warnings of increasing prices of primers and powder. I have paid the exact same price for primers and powder for the last two years. Which makes me think I maybe paying too much.

$30 for 1,000 for Winchester large and small pistol primers.
$20 for 1 lbs. Titegroup
$23 for 1 lbs. 231

These prices were as of November 17, 2012.

I pick up at the monthly gun show and no tax is added to the cost.

What are your costs?

Purchased Tula small pistol primers for $19.99/1000. I buy powder in 8/10 lbs. units and save a little buying in the larger size.

I have a lot of primers in stock and am putting in an order for powder shortly through Powder Valley, it will be right near or at 50 lbs to maximize the shipping. Its cheaper than any of the local stores by a wide margin.
