Federal Primers

called the local gun shop yesterday and asked to see if they had any primers and to my surprise they did. He had a lot of primers to be honest, they even had some federal primers. I have not seen federal large rifle primers in a LONG time. Unfortunatly for me they were not the match primers they were just the regular 210s but hey beggers cant be choosers right. Hopefully in the next couple of months it will get even better. At least i hope so.

Re: Federal Primers

About the only primers you can find around here are shotshell primers...and they got them by the boat load collecting dust.

Whoever's in charge of production or responsible for the serious lack of magnum rifle primers is missing out on some serious revenues.

Re: Federal Primers

There's always a lot of stuff on the store shelves...shortly after a large delivery! Try it again in a few days, things may be back to "normal."


"Whoever's in charge of production or responsible for the serious lack of magnum rifle primers is missing out on some serious revenues."

Not sure that's true. I mean the factories are all maxed out on production now so the only way to do more would be to enlarge the plants. That wouldn't be smart because the current shortage is due to panic buying and that will eventually run its course. Then a larger plant would still have to paid for even tho the demand for primers will crash when the hoarders do get tired of buying everthing in sight. Just give it time, things WILL return to normal.

Due to the fact the hoarders won't be buying any more primers for a LOOONG time, I suspect retail prices will drop to or maybe even below the levels of pre-BozO.

Re: Federal Primers

I see more and more primers on the shelf, it is not like it was year ago... The other thing I noticed is the prices, they gone up on powders and primers, say RE-15 cost 20 bucks 3 years ago now its sold for 30..., CCI LR were like 28 bucks and now they more like 40... Conclusion, factories do produce adequate amount to fulfill the demand, at the same time retail prices gone up, I think the distributors making most of the money nowadays

" I think the distributors making most of the money nowadays "

It's the so-called "law" of supply and demand. They were making profit at all levels before.

When we stop paying what they ask and products start piling up on the shelves and the whole system backs up, THEN prices will drop to what ever we WILL pay. Even back to where it was before the frantic-panic buying started but that may take another year or more. Fear dies hard!

When those who have gladly paid 2-3 times normal for a lifetime stock finally stop buying everything they can find at any cost it will reduce even normal pressure on the incoming primer & powder supplies. That will be even better for non-hoarders as "(great) supply and (lower) demand" will then drive prices back down.

Re: Federal Primers

True, some got stockpile of primers which should last their life times three, but they still can't stop buying them, some sort of compulsiveness, like if they start they can't stop, until they run out of money here is one example I just hope high humidity will not ruin them.
