Cabela's for $38/1K.

Of course you have to add in shipping and haz-mat.

$42/1K local is high, but may be the new norm.

I just paid $30 for 1k SPPs at the local reloading shop. But on Armslist they aren't really available for less than $50 per 1k.

Wow they are a going up. I thought I was paying a bit on the high side here in Alaska. I bought some before the shortage for around 35 per k.

All sizes were $30 per thousand at the store at the gun club, but deliveries are only trickling in, a few cartons per week. Still, the ARE getting delivered on a regular basis.

Prices at this time are all over the place. Those that have to have primers are paying a premium but things will get back to normal.

Locally available are in the $32 to $37 per K range for what is available. No small anything primers at all. But the LP/LPM and LR/LRM are in stock by the 5K sleeve presently. Also they have stayed in stock for about a week now.

In my area $30 to $32 seems to be the going rate at the local stores who won't hurt their customers. The guys who just don't care are charging between $38 and $42 per/k.

Went to a local store today and it was $50/k. But then again they are always way overpriced.

I bought 3k over the last 3 weeks, 1 LPP, 1 SPP and 1 SRP. All CCI, all $31.95+tax. They were $28+tax a few months ago, but I'm not complaining.

Ummm... last time I bought any at my local Turners here in California they were $42.50/K. My LGS sells 'em for $33-ish... when he has them. There's the rub.

$50/K is considered a decent deal on my local WTS board. It's not what somebody paid for 'em, it's what it'll cost to replace 'em. Right now that's an unknown.

Last time around, the Great Primer Drought of '09, it was LPP that were unobtanium. This time it's SRP that are gold. Everybody reloading 5.56/.223.

$25.69 on back order at Midsouth shooters if you can wait months. At LGS in Atlanta selling for $4.99 per 100, limit 300 per customer. So $50 per 1000 plus tax and gas for three trips to the store. Ouch!

$31/1,000 at one store, but they only have large. The store with small pistol and rifle charges $37-38.
These are all CCI.

I'm sure the prices on the West coast are always a bit higher than here in PA. Before the election I was paying no more than $28/k so $38/$40 is high around here especially since they can be had for $32/k. Since both stores are buying from the same vendor you know the stores with the higher prices are charging too much...

Local gun store had 2k CCI SPP for $36/k. Did not buy. I'm not buying stuff to flip on gunbroker.

My supplies of SPP and SRP were brought from Powdervalley a while back for $26/k

I helped a shooter buy some Rem SPPs at a local range that had a "two hundred" limit.
Two hundred sold for $11.50 counting tax.

I got lucky this week at Midway and got 5K Fed SPP's (max limit) shipped for $168.00

So do I, but I also find it surprising that production is keeping up so poorly with demand. Ammo shortages may only be a thing of the last few months (this time), but lots of gun manufacturers have been behind demand for the past couple of years. I realize that many of them have ramped up production to 75 or even 100% of capacity, but it seems to me that now would be a good time to increase their production capacity. I'm not complaining about the free market, just bugged by the lag time. I guess it seems that they may be playing things a little too cautiously for many of us. For me, the timing couldn't be worse - I've been waiting 20 years to have a good paying job, and now that I do, prices are too high for the wife's comfort!

Its a combination of a anti business and gun government. Why would a company spend huge sums of capitol, only to be punished by increased tax's and regulations. And if the current party in power has their way, they will limit quantities across the board, making the need for them to ramp up production a risky move.


It seems that people don't understand that small shop owners don't have the capitol or ability to rid this out without raising their prices. Big box stores like Cabala's or Sportsman's rely heavily on appeal for their bread and butter sails, But the local small shop does not have that luxury and they have to somehow plan ahead for what things are going to cost, no matter what they cost yesterday.


Any one who want's a local shop in the future should do their best to support them during the hard times now.

I am friends or at least acquaintances with the few store owners in my area.
They all tell me that their prices have not gone up from their distributors.
Here in Canada we have much less panic purchasing going on as
Far as firearms go but just as much as far as reloading components and AR parts.

It seems that for the most part manufacturers are still supplying their international distributors to some extent. The only bullet shortage that I have found is in 55gr .223 bullets.
Maybe I'm ahead of the curve on powder but I haven't missed a thing.

At the new Cabela's this morning, there were two bricks of CCI large pistol primers for $37.99 each, on the shelf. No other primers in the store.
I am well stocked in those, otherwise I might have been tempted.

I find it amazing how many people are anti free market.

I lived in Wichita Falls TX when a tornao put 20K people out of a home. Within 40 miles there was no phone service, no electricity and no water could be pumped.

The FREE MARKET then was the guy with the generator powered gas station charging triple for desparately needed gasoline. Gas prices didn't go up. Supply went down.. After the recovery, no one bought his gas and put him out of business.

There is a difference between the free market system and simply being screw'd.

I find it amazing how many people rush to capitalize on the misfortune of others.

I bought 5 boxes of primers today, and 7lbs of powder. The primers were marked 39.99 but he sold them to me for 32.99 since I bought quite a bit from him.

Around here, Mo., less than 35 is ok, over that and I'm not buying. I usually pay 32 per 1000 for SPP or LPP. I have a decent stock of primers so I don't have to have them if I think it's to high. When things calm down I'll stock up big time on everything.

They were running 24/7 BEFORE the last election and subsequent events - add in gov't orders and supplies are getting out as fast as they can.

And I live in FL where in 2004, we got with four hurricanes back to back to back to back - so what?

Well that was stupid. Who the heck will be there with a portable generator and gas the next time? Was he twisting your arm to buy the gas? Some people cut off their nose to spite their face and feel they have taken the moral high ground.
If you don't like him, then you should try living under communism and not have a "free" market to supply goods and services.

The government did not just go down to Walmart one day to the ammo counter and say, "Yes. I'd like a billion rounds please." They signed contracts with ammo makers to make ammo for them over the next 5-10 years. It's not the government causing the shortage. It's the people panicking, hoarding, and profiteering.

cwbys4evr
March 21, 2013, 01:37 PM
5 year contract, 1.6 billion rounds
320 million rounds per year
876K rounds per day

16 billion rounds are made around the world each year
43 million rounds per day

The DHS contract for ammo takes up about 2 percent of the worlds daily ammo production.

A whack job video justifying slime bag criminal behavior.

Nice.
Not very high road.

Just because I am against profiteering and crooked business practices.
I have all I need as far as reloading components, tooling, presses, and firearms, so that isn't it.

Maybe it is integrity, it is a nice thing to have, some have none. *shrug*

The high price in town is $39.99 per K (CCI), and the low price is $34.99. Speaking of, I ran across a case of CCI BR in my primer stock that I had paid $18.99 for during the Clinton ban back in the 1990's.
