    Need a little help here, I'm new to the world of reloading & as we all know stuff is hard to find right now. However i have found some primers for $6 per 100 ct, Pass or jump on it ??? Thinking I just might wait til the gun show next weekend & see what i can find there, if anything.

    At the Puyallup WAC show, they were running $35-$40 / 1,000, although a few people were trying to get $60. I personally wouldn't pay the price you are quoting unless I was desperate. Get on the backorder list and, in a month, you'll have what you want.

    Of course, some primers are more pricey than others.

    iirc the last expo GS, the primers were selling for 8/100+ one guy was even selling for 2x that.

    if you juast want to use the 100 to cut your teeth on reloading, then i woiuld go for it. its not like youre going to go in the poor house buying 100.

    but i wouldnt make a habbit of it tho.

    Just bought some at bi mart today for 30 and 35 bucks depending on if they were mag or standard. Hang in there they are showing up again.
