    What stores sell shotshell primers by the 1000's?
    In the past, I used to buy only the amount I needed (couple hundred at a time, didn't reload much back then) but I think I should be buying in larger quantities so I can get the cost per load down.

    I don't think I ever saw 1k boxes at BiMart or Sportsman's. I know it may be a while before I see them on the shelf, but I don't even know where to look for bulk.

    shot shell primers can still be found online I would suggest if you really want to lower cost to go somewhere like powdervalley or grafs.

    I just checked Grafs and they had federal shot primers for like 32/1k and $150/5k don't forget the hazmat fee and shipping is real cheap at grafs.

    Just an idea

    The gun shows, like at expo, used to have bulk primers, as we are starting to see a little ammo come back to retail stores, it will start showing up,back at gun show soon..

    Thanks for the info. Eugene is a little far.
    I'll keep checking the BiMarts closer to home.
