That aught to last you what about a week or so.

Re: Federal Primers

I only keep 1500 primers and I think its to much, I buy 200 - 500 at the time when I get bellow 1000, when primers were dry last year I hit the point when I only had 300 primers. I think in the picture guy has 60K or maybe more, but they all different SR, LR, SP, LP

Re: Federal Primers

Re: Federal Primers

Boomtube, not suggesting primer manufactures acquire additional buildings or increase existing facility square footage just better utilize what they have. As an examply reduce office space (especially exec's, exec secretaries, break rooms, dining facilities etc). I'm not sure what the footprint is for a primer machine etc but I'll bet they could sqeeze a few more than we think into production. The E/R in the short term would be enormous such that any capital investment could be paid off before demand could drop.

Of coarse this requires out of the box thinking and folks-management/employees aren't always so willing...I know I used to come in and revamp organizations-headcount, facilities, production, systems etc. It can be a hard sell but trust me theirs a way to increase output with minimul capital investment...sometimes with almost none.

Re: Federal Primers

I got this picture from other forum, where one guy answered the questions: Where all primers went? So he replied I got them stored in my basement here some of them, as far as powder dispenser I have no clue, once again I didn't take this picture

"Boomtube, not suggesting primer manufactures acquire additional buildings or increase existing facility square footage just better utilize what they have."

I've never been in a primer factory but from the photos I've seen I doubt they could reasonalbly add another production line in an office or coffee/lunch room. The price of those machines probably cost a bit too, which would then sit idle after the present panic subsides.

Sometimes thinking outside the box requires understanding how large the box really needs to be.
