    I've got a brick of Federal Match Large Rifle primers. I think I'll put them on gunbroker.

    Maybe, I could make enough to order that Allen Mag I always wanted.

    I know primers are tough to find. But that is ridiculous.

    Dang....Sure hope my local guy doesn't see that. He'll be retired in no time and I'll have to find some place else to buy components.

    There were 30 bids that started at $5.00 and ended at $200.00.

    Let me see, at that price I have over $6,000.00 worth!!!!

    Bet some of my Fed215M's and Fed210M's would go for more!!!!

    I don't reload but WOW I could just start buy primers, resell them and that would pay for all and then some of my reloading cost.
    I agree I know its hard to find stuff to reload, but why would you pay that much.

    is this right?its fishy. I think it would make bad press. lets all get together and gouge each others eyes out. anti's would like that. i think we are being lazy and not resourceful. there are other retailers out there that have supplies. i just bought fed 210 match primers last week. just saw 10000 fed 215 primers sitting on a shelf last week at a local gunstore. cci primers are more available than most and shouldnt go for that kind of stupid money.

    the stores that have supplies continue to backorder and do frequently.
