    A local retail store had small pistol and small rifle primers in stock yesterday. Retail price was $69.95 per thousand.

    That's so out of control

    That is cheap compared to what they are going for elsewhere. My kid recently paid 100 for a single k of LR primers. I told him that 'in this current climate - he did good'.

    I would pay that... I could still reload for a decent price.

    The shortage has made me try new powder, bullet primer combos. I'm saving my small pistol primers and stuff I usually use.

    Shot a bunch of 38 special yesterday. Loaded with small rifle primers and surplus military canister powder. Haven't shot .38 in years.

    My last 1k of small pistol primers cost $80...plus tax. It's the only thing I needed to make another 1k of pistol, so not bad overall. The way I see it, adding about $50 to 1k of 9mm is a lot better than the $700/1k factory ammo I saw people paying last weekend.

    Yea, I've got a buddy that just bought a few thousand for $100 ea. and was happy about it. He also drove an hour away to get them. Seems to be a reasonable price these days.
