All the hipe about who has primers for sale is getting to be moot point, without bullets it doesn't matter if you have primers or not.

Have you tried to buy any bullets lately? Not good.

I dont need to buy so many bullets as I cast most of my own. Casting is easy and enjoyable to me. Its also a hobby in itself just like reloading.

I'd buy from Natchez if I were flat-out of primers, but I can't bring myself to order now, when the HAZMAT fee will only be split across two bricks. That works out to something like $50 per 1000.

EDIT: It looks like they're out-of-stock again, anyway.

Bullets - scarcer than hen's teeth.

The best delivery I've seen lately was estimated at 2 months; the others are indicating up to 6 to 8 months.

Thanks for the heads up on the primers; however, they didn't last long..

...the listing says -OUT

I must agree with ScottR..

A limit of 2000 primers combined with Hazmat and shipping is a little steep for me too; along with their base price - #300 LARGE PISTOL PRIMER 1000 RD
Item Price: $35.19 (compared to last Powder Valley price of $26.00/1K)

If they had any of the pistol powders I normally use - W231, Unique, Powder Pistol, VV-N320, VV-N340, HP38 - and the primers could be combined with a powder order, then the deal wouldn't be as hard to swallow, but none of those powders are in stock.

The out of stock item you may want to watch would be the Winchester primers as it looks like you could order 5000 at one time.
