Has anyone heard of this before? I did some research concerning "limited life primers" and found two patients for this draconion idea.

Ya, I've heard of those before. I would be seriously upset if I found an experation date on my primers. What a bunch of #%@. As if people who stock pile loaded ammunition have some common agenda to storm the government, or as if having 10,000 rounds is a bad thing and considered a threat. Another liberal attempt to control our hobby, as usual.

I believe a lot of the conspiracy stuff and comes along every year but I highly doubt this one. Primers that go bad are a really bad idea. Who is to say those primers won't find their way into ammo used by the government or military, than what?

Limited life primers, what a useless invention. Ranks right up there with the solar powered flashlight.
Just bought four bricks of primers, not doing any more panic buying until someone credible tries to push it into law, I somehow doubt those blasted things will ever catch on without some help from the hill :D
Just reading the patent description it seems like a case of a chemist who knows nothing of manufacturing, producing anything with a tolerance of 1 nm is remarkably challanging, and doing it on a small cheap disposable item is impossible, get your coating too thick and they will last like a regular ol primer, too thin and they won't be functional by time they get to the warehouse.
I would not worry about it too much, basic economics says this product will fail before they ever hit the shelves (if they ever do) there are not a whole bunch of anti gun nutjobs who reload their own, and no ammo manufacturer is going to be chomping at the bit to pay more for an intentionally unreliable product.

This idea is nothing new. They tried it back in the 90's too. It all died when several chemists from both in primer manufacturing and outside the industry all said "There is nothing that can be put into primers to make them go bad in a year that wouldn't make them go bad before they left the factory" That ended the whole debate

or as if having 10,000 rounds is a bad thing and considered a threat. Threat, that will only get you through half a season in some shooting sports..
