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.
Well, when the current regime is out, I am sure the shortage will lighten up. Then I am going to buy more than my entire family can shoot and vacuum seal them all and store them in my basement. I will NEVER get stuck like this again and I'll make sure my fellow reloaders are taken care of too. What I paid is ridiculous - not as bad as GB ridiculousness - but close after you consider HAZMAT, tax and shipping.

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.
hilarious!!!

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
I've had ZERO issues with them. Sometimes I get too excited and check out before realizing I wanted to add some powder to an order (which incurs seperate shipping+HAZMAT+tax fees) and I email them and they combine the orders on the spot. Great customer service

If I didnt have any primers, I would buy some and never bat an eye. Look to be about 18 cents each. The last I bought seem like I paid 10 cents and only did that becasue a buddy of mine was selling them and he needed some help.

I tried to order today but they had a 30ct minimum? That is 4500 primers? The cost was $840 + shipping and hazmat. I would have been ok with 5 or 10ct but not 30? I wonder what is going on?

I have a question? Did they have a mask on? That totally out of line. That about 4 time the general cost for primers.
I would go without, or slow down my shooting if running low. It's not worth it.

I have always bought primers 5000 at a time, when I order a barrel I buy primers. I try to buy enough powder to shoot a barrel out but that gets pricey in a hurry. I will always buy at least 2 8 pounders at a time, and watch when Midway or one of those had free hazmat I would get 2 more. This was before the SHTF but by doing that you will end up with a pretty good stock that can get you by in times like this. I started this the last time the SHTF and continued, glad I did now and I have been able to help some guys out that did not buy in bulk.

I'll go along with that. If working a new rifle loads, 5000 primers from different manufactures just a lot of primers. To have on hand. As I said before 50,000 + primes is a lot. Now there are primers that I use mostly, and I carry far more to them. Those primers have been my go to primes in most of all my rifles and reloading and for a very long time.
I do agree on powders and getting larger amount for to use. I use a lot of H4350 in a lot of my reloading and that on hand. I am looking to try some H1000 and Varget I have some H4831SC on hand now. There is several other powders I use too. A lot of places are limiting you to 8lbs now also. If sleep Joe doesn't get to wild, we should be okay.
