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.
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.
