Last primers I bought at the local pawn shop where I normally buy such things were $3.99/100. Figured I'd give the "other" pawn shop a try and they had em' for $29.95/1000 which turns out to be $2.99/100. Still higher then they should be IMHO but a buck cheaper then the other guys. So, after I picked up 200 small pistol and 300 large pistol I was told that the price was going up to $3.99/100, that they weren't making any money at $2.99 which was basically just a few cents above their price. Guess I'm going to have to do two things. 1) Find a few local guys to make a group buy with on primers. 2)Switch to Wolf or Tula since they're about $7 bucks cheaper per 1000 then then CCI that I'm using now. Even with component prices going up it's still cheaper to handload then buy loaded ammo but dang, if this keeps up it won't be by much.
