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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
