How do these compare to Federal, Winchester, etc? That price isn't too much better than what you can find on Gun Broker for "name-brand" stuff.

If I was out or low on LRPs I wouldn't hesitate to get any. Better than none. Their ammo isn't that bad for plinking.

I understand everyone's convictions about paying the ridiculous price and waiting on the shortage to cease - BUT - I have brass, bullets, powder and an impending shoot on the horizon and I can't find primers anywhere in central Tennessee. I call all my local stores (including MidSouth) daily.
So yes, I'm "that guy" that needs them NOW and willing to pay the price just so I can make some **** ammo instead of doing what I've been doing (sitting on my couch angry and grumbling to myself)

No need to justify your purchase. Do what you need or want to do and carry on. **** on whoever doesn’t like it.

Do what ya gotta do to keep shooting Brother. If anyone bitches about it, tell em you cussed the guy selling them and called him a price gouging SOB... and asked him how could he sleep at night ripping people off.😆
I would be a little madder if I paid someone on Gunbroker. But RE has employees and if it keeps someone employed and fed instead of sitting on their butt leaching off the government then I’m OK. (at least that’s what I’m convincing myself to think)
Happy I got some
Happy I fed someone

Better then gunbroker. I bought a brick of 215s for the cost of 8. It was that or stare at a 5k setup for a year... I'll make it now but that was a tough one to swallow.

I am always hesitant ordering online with the added hazmat fees, etc. but i to am becoming "that guy". My local stores have been dry over a year. I thought I was prepared for the shortage but now find myself running out or low on all components. Gunbroker makes my stomach turn but I have looked twice in the past week thinking about it. Have you ordered from reloadingeverything before? Any issues with service or product? I am in need of primers and this might be the best I get for the foreseeable future. Thank you

Some places hold there prices, and I think the world of them. I also know that it's h*ll to stock up too. In looking back now. I wished I had gotten a few more 1000 lots of primes, but 5000 lots. Hind sight is 20/20 and that all there is to it. How I would go through 5000 primers of different manufactures is beyond me. That would mean having 30,000 to 50,000 primers on hand. That one h*ll of a lot. How many barrels would that burn out (30-50)? 50,000 primers and @ 70gr of powder per case is 800lbs of powder. That somewhere around $22,000.00+ in powder alone.
Now I have other primers, but most of the time I look at them and they look at me, and there they sit. So 15,000 primers is one h*ll of lot of primers just to start with even with different manufactures.
Now I am after some different primers to try, but I will only get them in 1000 lots. Most of them will probable sit and look at me.
On a good note: I am getting 8lbs of H4831SC coming in. So there is hope out there.

I have used them in the past and they work OK. I gave my nephew two bricks (1500 each) of Fiocchi Small Rifle primers, along with 5000 WSP and 5000 WSR, a while back to try out. So I guess I gave him $560.00 worth of Fiocchi primers. But he shoots a lot of 2 and 3 Gun matches, and at my age I am slowing down a lot and shoot mainly benchrest stuff.
Last night I sold a brick of WLR to a club member in need for $20.00 (that's what I paid for them).
Guess I am doing everything wrong.
Hope this shortage starts to ease up soon, there is very little on the shelves or online. But I am glad that I have a good supply of primers, powder, bullets and brass. Wasn't foresight, it was just plain luck on my part.

how about those members that live near "jumpmasterkolo" introduce yourselves, go meet him, give him a hand and get him 100 each from your stash... and make a new friend??? good karma adds up pretty fast when we help a guy out!
