Finally found some primers!!!

Last week my wife was in NC for business and picked up 600 CCI LR Bench rest primers for me. About 2 months ago I called the gun shop (it will remain nameless and will NOT receive anymore $ from me) and they had plenty primers in stock for $42 per 1K. When she went there they jacked up the price and she paid $54 for 600! I understand supply and demand, I just think jacking up the price that much is horrible. Especially since the gun shop is very close to a USMC base and is owned/operated by a retired Marine LtCol. Anyway, I went into Scheels here in Rapid yesterday and they had several bricks of the CCI primers I need. I picked up 1k for $44 and made a point to thank a manager for not jacking up the price. He did say they are becoming more and more available.

    Glad to hear you found some. Been seeing CCI, Winchester, primers, but not any Federals.

    LT Col or not what BS to go from $42 @ 1k to $90 @ 1k. Greed comes in all shapes.

    Last bunch I bought at a shop was about $32 perK for Win LR and got some CCI 400's for the same price.

    Look at gun shows and they were high dollar $40-$45 perK or more.

    We got a group order together and think it was 27,000 of various Wolf brand and was roughly $27 per K and that shipping included in the price.

    I bought 1K Win LRP and 1K Win LPP from Sportsman's Warehouse in Loveland, CO. while I was visiting my son and D-I-L. One was priced for $35 and the other $38 and I thought that was pretty high. Guess I got too used to them selling for $10 per thousand for so long, athough I saw them for $80 a thousand about six months ago at a shop here in KS., but I will quit reloading before I pay those extortion prices.
