Holy MolyPrimers galore if you look in the right places:
Various primers for $350/1000. These are all new... they’ve been stored in a climate controlled room since purchase. 1- Winchester Large Rifle Magnum 2 - CCI 400 Small Rifle 5 - Sellier & Bellot Large Rifle 3 - Federal 150 Large Pistol 2 - Sellier & Bellot Large Pistol Cash only... meet in...www.northwestfirearms.com
Those are the questions I am try to get answers too.So, now we have seen prices for primers almost double on gunbroker since this thread started. The last brick of CCI-500 small pistol primers that I was watching closed at $313 plus $39 for shipping! . So my question is, what do you think a fair trade would be for someone on another forum looking for CCI-250 Large Rifle Magnum primers exclusively, and offering to trade various powders? Specifically, H-4350.
Since primers are harder to get than powder (powder maybe 2x the 2019 cost, while primers are about 5x 2019 cost, or more for SP or SR).
Thoughts? It is kind of amusing looking back at the dismay and comments about the $150 per brick “gouger” prices back in October, when today that seems to be a generally accepted price here in NWF classifieds.
Welcome to the forum. Since you are asking this question I'll presume you are either new to reloading or have been out of the reloading game for a while. Both are very difficult to find now at what many would call "reasonable" prices. I have a friend near you who has not found much in stores in the area. As others have noted the classified section here is an option. Primers are very rarely found in stores and are going for up to 10 times the pre-panic prices. Powder is easier to find but options will be very limited. Even with the inflated costs, it is likely still cheaper than loaded ammo.
