I think I found where all of the primers went.

Be sure to read the second half of the description and look at the picture.

Re: I may of found where all of the primers went

Boy that burns me!!! I've been trying to get some BR2's for about 3 months now and these A-0's are selling them for $80 + shipping (that puts them up past $100 after fees). What a bunch of crap. Should compile a list of sellers and black list them all!

Re: I may of found where all of the primers went

britz,
Why are you upset. This is the capital system at work. First of all, we do not know when those primers were purchased. They could have been sitting on them for a long time, and saw the price increases, and started listing them at what ever the market will bare. This looks to me to be a business, selling marketable goods. I think there are better places to target our outrage. I chose not to support their business, but will not hold them in contempt for what they are doing either.

I dont disagree with supply and demad. But if it wasn't for people buing this amount of primers maybe my 2000 on order would be filled.

they're free to ask any price for anything... so long as we're free to say no...

hoarding is reprehensible, but if no one buys from them, they're stuck...

it'll all work out just right...

Do you really believe that they were holding on to them for a while??? actually the proof is in the packaging. The primers I was talking about came in an all black package which CCI switched to in the last couple years... true it is possible that they were bought prior to the big shortage, but HIGHLY unlikely.

I believe in the law of supply and demand... but many out there were buying up primers to sell on the internet. It is no different than contractors who charge more for the same work because they know that the competition is busy... it is legal, it happens all the time, but I don't have to like it. It is IMO not a good business practice.

Re: I may of found where all of the primers went

I understand your frustration, britz.
Maybe look at buying a small amount to hold you over until your backorder is filled. In the big scheme of things, would paying $1.00 a primer for a small amount of what you need to keep going break the bank. Or is it the principal of the matter. If it is the principal of the matter, by all means stick to your guns. If I had what you were looking for I would be more than happy to help you out.
