Default primers price

Whats your threshold price? I almost bought 4000 yesterday. After taxes, HM they were close to .10 per.

I know BPS and cab, academy sometimes have them in stock but its not close and i dont have all the time to browse there too often.

I put in my cc info, then backed out, then came back and thankfully yhey were sold out because i think i would have pulled the trigger lol.

I bought way over 50,000 back in 2004 and thought I was an idiot but looking back I was a genius. I’m sitting on over 150k n wouldn’t pay today’s prices but if you need them at whatever cost then thr worth it IMO. The price isn’t coming down anytime soon so if you wait the price is merely going to go up from here.
Prices from 2 years ago will never be seen again,,

Prices will come down eventually if the market gets saturated. It always has in the past. I doubt it will ever get back to what they were but will drop some. If I needed some I'd pay .10 a piece.

I bought a few K of CCI 450s for $60/K recently. I’m well stocked on everything else and refuse to pay more than $40/K. 450s I maybe have gone $75/K, but thankfully I didn’t have to.

60-75$ a k is about what I’m willing to pay. But I’ve got 4-7 k so I’m in no rush

$36-$38/k is about the most I am going to pay. Fortunately, I may never need any.

Well yall have some high hopes or may be holding out for a while. I had to bite the bullet and pay 80$/k plus taxes, shipping and hazmat cost me 130$ **GULP** These were Gold Medal Match LRs but still, it hurt to fork that much over.

ETA: I can find them cheaper locally but there is a freaking limit on how many you can buy. That drives me freaking nuts but understand why they are doing.

These a very different times! That high price is here to stay and I believe it will get much worse before it gets better- if it even does.

If you get desperate enough you’ll pay whatever you can afford or do without.

I bought some yesterday for 6 bucks a hundred. In time prices will come down, but right now six bucks a hundred is pretty good. I'd pay a little more than that if I could find them, but for the most part I just shoot my bow a little more

I’ve passed up a lot of small rifle and large rifle at $55-60 per K lately. The 450 (small rifle magnum) was the only primer I was missing that I need. Still had 1K. Wanted 3-4K more. Paid $60 per K. Passed up a ton of 400s at $60 per K, and a few 200s as well. They’re there if you look.

Well i bit, i didnt feel like going everywhere and looking then getting limited to 4 sleeves.

Should have asked if anyone needed some to help share extra costs. I felt dirty but i wont need primers for a while. Vista already posted they are increasing price next month....

Got smoked for $65 in extra costs so about a tank of gas lol.

Man my academy never had anything good. I usually go to the one in Webster and it's hit and miss, mostly miss.

Is there limits?

Keep checking Academy. Most in San Antonio have none, mine has had them for three weeks in a row. Large Rifle sell out, small rifle still in stock, have not seen any small pistol yet. Still limited to 4 per day.

Got lucky and found small rifle primers at Scheels in DFW. Limit 5 boxes per person. I think they were $7.99 per box of 100.
