Where are there primers for sale?

    This thread is for the purpose of posting places where Handloaders/Reloaders may be able to acquire primers. I keep hearing that the availability is improving, but the dealers I frequent never seem to have the particular product I need.

    If you have information, please add a post on this thread, and AVOID STARTING yet another thread. If you list a dealer, please include a link to the web site, and a phone number.

    Please note: It DOES NO GOOD to list places where there WERE primers for sale. If you got some at a local gun show which won't be repeated for months, or from a one-time-only local liquidation, it doesn't help other members, and you're just bragging. :rolleyes:

    It is my hope that we'll be able to discontinue this "sticky" soon, when the situation improves. One thing to remember: It is unrealistic to suppose that prices will EVER come down to where they were before last November. As Jeff Cooper wrote, "The past is another country."

    Member The Real Mags sent a suggestion for this thread, and his input is appreciated.

    I ordered primers from www.cabelas.com on Aug.13 and they were delivered today !

    MAGTECH sm. pistol were $29.99 and Remington 209 shotgun were $40.99 for 1000
    I know they were a little expensive and more when you add in the Hazmat fee but "You can't always get what you want but sometimes you get what you need"
    I just checked and they are both still in stock !

    I've ordered primers from both Powder Valley and Widners and the prices tend to even out as shipping/handling is a lot less at Widners.

    Vance's in Columbus Ohio has them. You can only get 1000 per visit and I know the LP is $40 out the door and I think everything else was something like $37 out the door.

    Fellow Virginians (sorry everyone else),

    If you are within driving distance of the Warrenton/Opal Virginia area, Clarks Brothers gun shop frequently has primers in stock, just give a call and ask, they'll even hold a box or two for you if you ask. Good bunch of guys to deal with even if the prices are a little higher.

    I was just at Vance's in Columbus, OH. They've got a whole section filled with CCI primers. Maybe 100k of LP, 4k Magnum SP, 50k of small rifle and 50k of large rifle. Sorry no small pistol. However, they did have about 50k of them a week or two ago when I restocked on SP.

    They've also got 20-30k of Win 209's and 10k of Federal 209's for you shotgunners.

    Good hunting Buckeyes.
