    The shock continues: Tuesday, May 19th, I stopped in at Fin, Feather, Fur Outfitters located in Ashland, OH and was shocked to see 1,000 CCI large rifle primers (non-magnum) going for $39 and some change. They were packaged in new gray boxes though. I thought I has misread the price but when I saw the CCI magnum primers were over $40 for a thousand, I did a double-take. There's a slight chance that I may have mistaken the large rifle for large pistol primers but I was hyperventalating so bad and I couldn't find any paper bags as I don't do plastic. 3 years ago or less at a gun show I bought Winchester small rifle primers for $12.50 per thousand and I felt I was ripped off; and by the way, they came with a paper bag where I could breathe heavily into. What's the world coming to? BT-100dc

    You should have bought them. You could have doubled your money by selling them on the internet!!

    40.00 per 1K right now is not that bad of a deal, I am cheap but even I don't consider that scalping.

    On Gun Broker, 5000 large pistol primers sold for $395. That comes out to $79 per 1000.

    Last night at our weekly shoot, one of the shooters showed me a sales slip from one of NH's largest gun shops. He paid $50 for a thousand Winchester 209 primers. Guess we're all going to be shooting a little less.

    Local retailer had all the different primers the other day large and small rifle same with the pistols and shotguns they were all the same price of 3.75 per hundred with a limit of 500 per type per person each day. There is no way would i purchase cheap and turn around a sell high . As i have never been able to bring myself to sell hulls when i came along your friends shared and we still do . Guess i live in a make believe world tell ya what its nice

    If everybody would STOP paying those HIGH prices and quit stocking up, the prices would go back down where they should be.
