You are absolutely correct. If no one paid those insane prices the prices wouldn't be insane.only works if people are dumb enough to pay that
PLEASE get the name right! It'sGo to Gunbot on your computer. They check and report back on dealers, products, and prices from all over the U.S.A.. I just ordered 8 lbs of IMR 4350 from Powder Valley (paid with VISA ) including the hazardous shipping fee, and received the order in 5 days+. You'll find all of the well known suppliers, (Midway, Cabelas, Butches, Third generation, Winners, AIG, Natchez and more.
I've been using them for years. Check multiple well-known suppliers for powder, brass, bullets, and primers. I ship the cheapest ground method and have never had a complaint.
You can also purchase loaded ammo and have it sent to your mailing address unless you live in Kommiefornia or some other Demunist State.
Or far less.The seller can certainly accept whatever the buyers are willing to pay. I am more amazed that there is a buyer willing to pay $500 for 3lbs of H1000. I saw more than that sitting on the shelf yesterday around $34/lb. Things are tight right now, but they're not terrible. I needed CFE pistol yesterday. Had to drive an extra 10 minutes to a store I don't normally go to, but price was fair at $25.99. That being said, once upon a time I lived in a state that wasn't gun friendly (NJ) and had to drive to into PA to get supplies. If you're in an area with only two shops and neither has anything, I guess I can see why you'd be desperate.
People paying over $100 for a pack of primers must know more than I do.
This. People paying $100 for a pound of powder or $150 for a brick of small pistol or small rifle primers are doing so because they are worth it to them! Most of us wouldn't bother at that price because we bought earlier at a price that was acceptable to each of us. In two or three years, we may have to consider paying today's higher market prices, if we use up our supply and demand/supply dictates these higher prices going forward. In the meantime, I salute Sportsman's Warehouse and their policy of limiting purchases of powder or primers to one pound or brick per person per day. And their prices have only risen slightly on powder and I bought a brick of CCI-550 small pistol Magnum primers there this morning for $23.99. There were 6 or 7 bricks on the shelf. They also had a brick of Winchester small rifle primers for $27.99, half a dozen bricks of Federal small rifle Match for $27.99 and half a dozen Federal 210 large rifle primers for $23.99. I may go back tomorrow and pick up a brick of Federal 210's if they are still there.It:s what the market will bear? I sold a :57 Bel Air convertible in '97 for over 4X"s the new sticker price!
Why whine either you want or you don"t.
