as far as primers, we have a local gun shop that has CCI 400 primers and he is rationing sales to 3 packs of 100 for 5.99 each. That comes to 60.00 per 1000. I call that scalping. Other gun shops are selling them for 40.00 per 1000 and there is one shop still selling them for 32.00 per 1000 when they have them.
Sorry, you are free to choose to spend your money or not. The last 6 months everyone called it gouging, now it's scalping - Here's
a video about that issue worth watching.
