I see that Wideners has some CCI primers available but only to commercial ammunition manufacturers (form 6 holders).

See the link http://www.wideners.com/itemview.cfm?dir=278|284|905


I had never seen this on their site before. Is this a common practice?

Well they are listed as OEM primers, and they are separate from the rest. Not sure what to tell you.

I have seen other places list primers or powder for 06 holders also, so this isn't unheard of. What I want to know is what is the difference between the CCI 500 for me and the CCI 500 for the OEM. What is the difference between OEM and non-OEM primers basically?

I don't really know the difference between these primers and primers for the rest of us. If there isn't any difference, then I sure would take my business elsewhere. Truth be told, I don't like weidners anyway, never did

yup, kinda like saying "we have some, but you can't have any" Does not make you want to business with them.

If I had to guess, OEM primers are packaged considerably differently than regular "buy at the gun store" primers.

Could the OEM primers be taxed at a lower rate when manufactured with the expectation of collecting excise taxes from the ammunition manufacturer later?

Grafs has a section with OEM 50 BMG primers with similar restrictions.

It's a packaging thing.

They are missing the consumer warnings, packaged in different trays and quantities, and offered at wholesale prices only.

They're not labeled or packaged for retail sales.

Kind of like how those tiny bags of tater chips are labeled "Not For Individual Sale" when you buy the big boxes full of them at the discount club. That's because each little bag doesn't have the nutritional information and warnings (Don't eat the bag, don't stick it over your baby's head, etc) that the FDA requires on retail packages. The big bag has this stuff on it, but not each little bag.

Same thing with these primers.

Cheaper to package them that way, so the price is a little lower for the volume loaders who aren't required by law to see that info on every sleeve.
