Midway and primer "alert" (whine...)

So I'm sitting here at my computer when BAM three emails with something about Primers came in from Midway. All three were alerts that the three different magnum primers that I had asked to be notified about were in. WOO HOO!!! I clicked the link... out of stock... clicked the next link out of stock... clicked the last link IN STOCK... and they were 215M's!! Jackpot... ADD 5 to cart.... ORDER.... What??? you've got to be f'ing kidding me... there's a big round zero in the quantity ordered column... and Out of Stock, no back-order displayed on the screen.

I think they should have at least saved me a box. Don't they know who I am?

I did the same thing, but I didn't try ordering as our local supply is looking better every week. The last gun show I went to guys actually had to take primers home and didn't sell out

Just curious what do you guys feel is a reasonable shelve life for primers assuming your keeping them indoors in a relatively low humidity environment?

I've got pistol primers that are at least 8 years old and they shoot fine. A few, not many anymore, of my rifle primers are 5+ years. I've heard that as long as you keep them reasonably cool and dry shelf life is quite a while (hesitant to quote a number due to bad memory )

Mike6158, sounds good I think I'm ok then as I'll probably only keep enough around for 1-2 years at the most. Got your PM Thanks.

Merry Christmas to you and yours also and may the New Year bring you all you hoped for. Chas.

Powder Valley has Hodgdon 4831 in 1# and 8#... at least that's what the website says. No sense in letting the money that's left sit around.
