prime

A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that cannot be formed by multiplying two smaller natural numbers. A natural number greater than 1 that is not prime is called a composite number. For example, 5 is prime because the only ways of writing it as a product, 1 × 5 or 5 × 1, involve 5 itself.
However, 6 is composite because it is the product of two numbers (2 × 3) that are both smaller than 6. Primes are central in number theory because of the fundamental theorem of arithmetic: every natural number greater than 1 is either a prime itself or can be factorized as a product of primes that is unique up to their order.
The property of being prime is called primality. A simple but slow method of checking the primality of a given number

, called trial division, tests whether

is a multiple of any integer between 2 and

. Faster algorithms include the Miller–Rabin primality test, which is fast but has a small chance of error, and the AKS primality test, which always produces the correct answer in polynomial time but is too slow to be practical. Particularly fast methods are available for numbers of special forms, such as Mersenne numbers. As of December 2018 the largest known prime number has 24,862,048 decimal digits.
There are infinitely many primes, as demonstrated by Euclid around 300 BC. No known simple formula separates prime numbers from composite numbers. However, the distribution of primes within the natural numbers in the large can be statistically modelled. The first result in that direction is the prime number theorem, proven at the end of the 19th century, which says that the probability of a randomly chosen number being prime is inversely proportional to its number of digits, that is, to its logarithm.
Several historical questions regarding prime numbers are still unsolved. These include Goldbach's conjecture, that every even integer greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two primes, and the twin prime conjecture, that there are infinitely many pairs of primes having just one even number between them. Such questions spurred the development of various branches of number theory, focusing on analytic or algebraic aspects of numbers. Primes are used in several routines in information technology, such as public-key cryptography, which relies on the difficulty of factoring large numbers into their prime factors. In abstract algebra, objects that behave in a generalized way like prime numbers include prime elements and prime ideals.

I just sold my only 6.5 creedmoor rifle, so i don’t need my ammo anymore. I’m looking for a face-to-face sale because shipping ammo is a PITA. I have a couple boxes of 6.5 creedmoor 140gr or 147gr hornady ELD match i’ll include with the sale at no extra charge. Merry late christmas i guess...

As listed above, I have 5 box's of 130gr 6.5 Creedmoor Match ammo manufactured by PRIME. PRIME makes great ammo (using Peterson Brass) and I used the rest of the 600 rounds for PRS type matches but have now moved onto 6mm Creedmoor for my match needs.
Just like this...

Bought this for my new turret press... still prefer to prime by hand.
Practically new in box, Its primed maybe 20 cases?
Includes everything needed to attach, both large and small primers.
There is even a handful of primers in one of the tubes.
$25
would trade for:
BULLET MOLDS--> 158gr...
