    Purchased Winchester small pistol primers last month (December 2012) at $33.50/1000

    Went back to the same store two days ago for another 1000 small pistol primers and found the store was completly sold out of all pistol primers and when the next lot comes in they will be $39.00/1000

    This is a small one person local gun shop who tries to keep his prices as low as possible for the local trade

    Wonder who gets the additional $5.50

    Given the current state of production, I can't imagine that the cost of materials is going to remain constant. Unless the manufacturers have been acquiring raw materials trying to keep pace, and this may hopefully be just a small bump.

    I purchased 2,000 CCI small pistol primers less than 2 months ago for US$27.00 per 1,000. This was from Graf & Sons in Mexico Missouri, USA.

    Not sure what they are today even if they have them in stock. I noticed that Graf's is about 10 days behind in shipping orders.

    Grafs has very little to nothing right now. Like most places, they got slammed and are struggling to ship out what they had.

    I wonder how many businesses will go under because they can't get product to restock with?
