The hazmat will kill ya!

Hello - it's not the primer cost that will get you - it's the hazmat fee of $ 20.00.

How about hopping on the PA Pike and taking a day trip to the Cabela's in Wheeling WV? You could save enough on hazmat to get an entire brick!

God bless.


And remember: Hug your God and your guns - 'cause he's coming for them both, and soon!

I wouldn't have any problem giving you 200, except for a couple things. First of all, I don't have any, all I have are LR Magnums. But an even bigger problem is that I don't think I can legally send them to you. The online stores charge you $22.50 for each shipment that contains powder or primers. And I think they have to have some kind of certification to do that.

I see lots of ads on Gun Broker selling primers (usually at ridiculous prices). Some of them say they are certified to do it and they will add the haz mat fee into the price. But others don't even mention it at all. I have to believe there is a chance of getting into some serious trouble just sending them against the rules like that.

Patience, I think Johnson's in Norvelt will be getting them soon. You may want to call them. There is a place in Ebensburgh that had some two weeks back. They are coming.
