People keep mentioning that they get like 10,000 primers for $100. That is $.01 (1 cent) per primer.
Here in Southern Californica I am paying 2 cents a primer! That's $20 for 1000 primers. It's killin me. Where can I get these good deal on primers. Give me a number, I have my credit card ready. The less I can buy the better. Optimally Iwould like to find like 1000 primers for, say, $12 or 5000 primers for, say, $55.

the cheapest I can find is Zanders in Baldwin
Ill. 1-800-851-4373, but this is wholesale
and you need some kind of license, I have a
FFL and retail tax stamp, but prices even if I buy 100,000 is still $11.15 per 1000 for
Winchester small pistol primers. if I buy
just a 1000 of those primers it would cost
$12.42 plus hazmat charge of $12.00,that would put the price over $24.00 per 1000.

cheers, tb

Naturally, when one is intensely interested in a certain cause, the tendency is to associate particularly with those who take the same view. THEODORE ROOSEVELT “1899”
