Price is only about 2 1/2 times rational.

Wolf primers are good primers, but they aren't $60/1000 good. Holy moly, that site wants outlandish prices.

Wolf/Tula are good primers... worth about $25/1000 just like any other primer.

Every one needs to remember who is doing the Price Gouging. Be sure not to spend a penny with them from now on. The are showing no respect to you.

Considering I just bought 5000 Fiocchi 209's for $98, why would I pay 40/1000 for cheap Russian stuff?

Excessive for times of normal demand. But if you need them, at least they have them. I've been perfectly happy with wolf primers.

A guy that I see at my public range whom also reloads uses them and from looking at his shot groups I would say there is nothing wrong with them. He also likes the way they are packaged so you can keep all of them facing up and not have to do the primer flip like with the way Federal pack there's.

Wolf/Tula primers are quite highly regarded, actually. They seem "gentle" and consistent. I've not used them but plenty of people do. Still not going to pay $60/1000.

I thought 60.00 /1000 is way too high.... plus the hazmat/ride fee

Primers here in the Clearwater/Tampa Florida Area are going for $40.00 a 1000. It doesn't matter what brand.

Sorry, but I would have to be out of primers to pay that. I lucked up and got 2000 CCI large rifle and 2000 small pistol primers from Natchez a few months ago. I think I paid about 35 per thousand for those.
