I just paid about 55.00 for them at Bass Pro Shop. I would normally shop around but circumstances dictated that I buy them NOW. I seem to remember paying around 25.00 for them last year. I believe I just got screwed (with myself as a willing participant), but how badly?

At the local gun show about 6 or 8 times per year, a case of 5000 primers is between $102 and $107 depending upon vendor. They were $97 per 5000 until July, then went up 5 bucks. Do the math, this is about 20 to 21 bucks per thousand.

Oh, yeah. That's for Federal, CCI, and Winchester primers.

Bass Pro is the most expensive I have seen. If I have to buy fast, I go to the local Cabells, 29.00/K. Otherwise I order by 5000 at Powder Valley.

I couldn't buy 1000 the last time I was at Cabelas. They were out. I bought their last 400. I think they are about 18 or 19 dollars per 1000. I'm worried they are going to go up in price because they are in short supply.

$80/5000 wolf from Wideners or Powder Valley. Plus S&H&HM.

At my local funshop Winchesters are $26.50 per thousand, going to go up to $31.50/thousand end of the month.

5,000 Winchester #1-1/2 for $122.99 (delivered) from Graf & Sons in March 2007 - that works out to $24.60/1,000. I'd expect them to cost more today.......

The last ones I bought were $2.99 per 100 for CCI's. I tried to buy 1000 but the shop didn't have them on hand so I bought what they had on hand.

some people quote prices that are either FFL whsle or C&R prices, which still do not include frt or haz mat charges. I think the best prices are from Powder Valley or Grafs for those that are not FFL holders.

I buy in tens of thousands of primers. Order enough and they pay freight and HazMat.:)

you should call them up or even go down there tell them you did some price comparisons. even call up thier cooperate. maybe able to get a discount
Its well worth it. you almost paid double the going rate.

Heck, you could order just 1000 online, pay hazmat and shipping, and still come in under $55.

I am buying with a C&R license and yes $17 per K does include freight and HM at Graf's. But you have to buy 50,000 at a time.

Is that of one primer type, or can you mix and match the 50,000?

Shoney, I don't sell them, I use them. I'm an ammunition manufacturer.

You can mix and match the 50K to get the discount.

ON another forum we do group buys; our last GB we had to turn people away because we went over the 50,000 primer limit on one HM tag. We did a second GB and maxed that one too, with powder and primers. That's the best way to do this. Then the big guys will eat the HM.

$29.99 for Win. & CCI and $24.99 for MagTech.

I did a group buy where the order was for 600,000 primers and 200lbs of powder.

I think there must have been a mistake because even the local Gander Mountain which has the highest prices in the state only charges $34.95/1000 for Winchester primers. I buy them for between $23.95 and $24.95/1000 in the local stores and gun shows but no more. (and I don't like those prices) Before the prices started going wild two years ago I was paying $16.95 and last year I was paying $19.95/1000.

Most DFW Gun shows have Large Pistol Primers for $26-28/1000 for Winchester. That is what I usually buy. (Small pistol primers may be a buck or two less).

Last time I went one vendor had MagTech for $22/1000. I bought 1000 and have loaded and shot a couple hundred so far--seem to work fine. If I buy 5k at a time, he usually knocks off $1/2 per thousand.

PM me if you want details.

I just paid $31 for them at a local small town shop. The Bass Pro price is obscene.
