1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I've got some STS 209 primers that are looking for a new home. I'm not sure the legalities of shipping these but I am looking to get $40 per thousand for them.

    PM if you are interested.

    Don't forget to factor in the $22.00 per package Haz-Mat charge. Which reminds me, who ends up getting all of the haz-mat charge money?

    Best try to sell them at the club. (expect to take a loss)

    Guess you could tell the postmaster "No" when they ask you all those questions. Good luck.

    Don't understand the "good deal" part. $40 per thousand equates to $200 for five thousand. Just paid around $140 for 5 K Winchesters.

    Supply and demand. There is no supply and some of us are eccentric enough to prefer using Remington components in Remington hulls rather than think we know more than the folks at Remington.

    Mr. Rhoads,

    I appreciate your interest in my primers. That was also sarcastic and not meant to go over your head.

    Lyle,
    If you get your price, please tip me off to the buyer as I have either 10,000 or 20,000 I would be happy to sell at the same price! This is not sarcastic! I am genuinely groveling and asking for your help! Thanks, Tom Rhoads

    Shipping primers is not the same as shipping ammo. You need to be certified to ship Hazmat, which will cost you around $500 for the certification, ON TOP OF the $20ish hazmat fee you will pay to ship each package. The big reloading companies have these certifications, you don't. And before you ask, primers (and powder) have a different classification than loaded ammo, and thus are exponentially more complicated to ship.

    Doing a couple minutes of research on google yielded a story of someone who's friend got caught shipping primers without going through the proper procedures, and the fine was $200k
