Was running low on SPP on my loading bench--so I picked up another 1000 for $21.00.

What brand are they for $21? And where did you "pick them up" from?

No kidding. I'd like to know too....

Last time I got a 1,000 I paid $34.95 for Winchester. $21.00 is a steal!

I don't know what you guys are doing to get these to work.

Seating them properly would be my guess.

I haven't ever seen them on the shelves at my LGS. Do you guys just order them online? I might try some, and if they work, and are cheap enough to justify the hazmat fee, I might bulk up on them.

When you say; "Seat them properly", do you mean carefully seat them with a hand priming tool? (Because that's what I do.)

This thread made me curious. I went into the shop and looked on the shelf to see what was there. I have several boxes of Winchester WSP primers in the white box with red lettering and the price tag on the box is $11.95.

Soooo...... I found a box of SPP for $11.95 today! LOL

Before seating my primers, I look in the mirror, I see that I am a man and I seat the primers accordingly:D

Yep, no need to be dainty with them.

Yep, no need to be dainty with them.

Absolutely. If they don't go bang the first time, keep smackin' 'em with a firing pin until they do! They can take it!

"Before seating my primers, I look in the mirror, I see that I am a man and I seat the primers accordingly"

Now that cracked me up ............ very funny.

I have great luck with Tula primers. Yes I do find that you need to use some extra oomph to seat those tight primers. As a bonus they will give you an extra use or two of well used brass with loose primer pockets however.:) I paid around $22 per K for them from Powder Valley last Nov when I ordered my last batch. FWIW the prices we see now will drop some I believe but the prices of the past will be long gone I fear.
