10 posts in this topic

checked today and found out rifle primers are now 76.00 a brick (1000). Now that's over double of what they were a month ago.

I have been hearing about price gouging at stores, where were you? I haven't been to my reloading store in a while. I will have to make a swing up there in a week or two.

Does anyone know where they teach reloading? I want to give it a go but havent the slightest idea of where to start.

I would start by reading a reloading manual or 3. there are some videos on you tube, but like anything, don't trust or believe everything you see on the internet. I also have a post here in this forum about the basic steps I go through as well

I was in DesMoines 2 weeks ago - Scheels was $35 per 1000 for W209. I bought 2 bricks. They were limiting purchases of WLP to one sleeve per person. When will this end???

$76 for any type of primer per thousand is price gouging. I checked with a distributor of mine last Friday. I was looking into getting primers for a few shooters at my club, and splitting my costs 7 ways. Primers, shipping, haz-mat fee, and sales tax, brought the final price of 35k primers to $34 per thousand.

Now if a dealer were to mark them up 20%, that would put them at $41.

The only primers that were over $30(dealer costs) were Remington shotgun primers. Winch's were $29, and Fed's were $28. They had all the shotgun primers I wanted, but were limited to the number of rifle and pistol primers.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
