Yup! Buy in bulk and perhaps share costs with other reloaders near you. Where are you finding primers NOT made of unobtainium? 馃

None yet. Just for planning purposes. I know when Bass Pro has them in the warehouse they can be sent to the store for no fee.

Hi there .. I just went to Bass Pro shops in Fl . They are selling [1] box of 100 primers for about $5-6 dollars each ..the maximum currently allowed is [10]

No shipping cost to the store(s) . None available in any B.P.S. right now .. All inclusive from the 'east coast to the west' . I hope this answers your question(s) my friend ... 'Gunner' ;)

Clarification from Joe Carry , as above , none of the stores have any in stock . From what i could gather they all are locked in to the prices above . Again, no primers in stock at those prices in all stores right now ..[ Bass Pro Shops ] Fl.

Thank you. (y)
Hi Mr. Joe Carry-You're more than welcome my friend . I knows it sounded a little confusing , and it was . Actually i had to read it several times . I originally went to google and just typed it into the search as always . Hopefully things will pick up soon , and even the small amount above will help . I did some quick figuring & at a possible $50-60. per thousand [10] boxes , & not charging any s&h to the store(s) , really not too bad . If so It surely beats the prices on *gunbroker below . Now all we need is to get the full load of primers back into stock .

* The current bids last night ranged from about $225. to $300. per thousand . On top of those prices , an additional $25. for shipping for the hazmat fee . Or $22. to $30. per single box of 100 ! Yes absolutely insane , but bids were coming in.
p.s. - Joe , I hope this is easier for you to read . ;)

With prices like that most people would be tempted to sell their stash but that would possibly leave you with a safe full of over priced paper weights. Dark days

A very good thought my friend , & you are absolutely correct ! .. Metaphorically a great example & man do i ever have a load of these 'paperweights' & some primers. I don't have that many on hand right now , ball parking around @#$% . I had more but have loaded up many different calibers in pursuit of matching my collection pieces ..

Thanks for your input , and I'm sure that you had at least a few members [me] rethinking what the financial gain might be .. Not worth it under circumstances . If these so called red laws come to fruition , they might become paperweights ! May the good Lord help us all , as that might just become catastrophic . :rolleyes:馃憥馃憥馃憡

p.s.- I try to always see the glass half full , always have and always will .. Right now I'm trying to get another project completed in the interim . I'll git er done ;)

I'm going to load a run of 500 match grade 168g BTHP in .308 I have the test rounds ready to cronograph at my next range trip.
Nice loads to be getting done , especially match grade .. I have some factory match grade in .308 , but not loaded up by me . Other than close weight(s) & an aerodynamic ogive , anything special to know about the powder type or burn rate etc ? ..What are your expectations for the chrono' results ?
When i do load mine up , i use the Eld heads .. other times the Sst's .

Right now I have a 2 day delay from essential items to arrive here for my other project .. Maybe the weekend or the holiday for the delay .. Thanks Mr. Earl ;)

Well I'm using CFE 223 and hoping to see 2800 to 2828 FPS Nosler BTHP 's . The rounds are for my AR10 not a bolt gun or I would be using ELDM instead . I'm sure it will do better than some surplus nato stuff.

It absolutely will especially with your vast reloading experience . That's a pretty hefty round for an Ar type rifle . I have on hand Cfe Blk . I think i bought those for my re formed .300 B/o brass , with 123 grn heads . I used my wilson cannelure tool for some and others not .. my chop saw is all set up to start running them. With my wife's condition , i have no time to finish them up .

I'm just getting use to the procedure & proper powder/ gr weight etc. My bud just built his .300 s/auto upper and lower .. Originally i sent my brother up some hornday Sst's in 150 gr with those red nose tips . He had a beautiful Rem 700 Bdl in '06 , which i ended up with prior to his death . That will stay in the family along with some pre '64 ones .

I would like to be teaching reloading to some of the younger generation to pass the skill down, it might be very useful if the dimocraps keep cheating on the elections.
