    How about the $25 Haxmat fee?

    That is why you buy at least 5K, and 10K is better. :)

    You know, it ain't been all that long ago that the big news would have been that they have primers in stock not that they were on sale. :cool:

    Buy 10,000 and add the $25 Hazmat and you are still paying only $25.49/1000. That's a good price and better than I've seen in years.

    Thanks for the heads-up AC...

    They've been on sale for several weeks. Like Seedtick said, "not long ago..."

    I think that this is a clear sign that the scare tactics are over and it has turned into a buyer's market. As far as I'm concerned, I'm going to wait until they get even cheaper. I hope they're all stuck with a big inventory.

    Does anyone have a promo code for Graf's? I like the old days, when they would give you 5% off over 400.00, and 10% off over 1,000. Ahhhh the good old days

    That is a very good price for CCI 500s.

    Had to laugh at Seedtick's post - but he IS right.

    Graf & Sons pricing includes free shipping (just $4.95 processing per order) so volume order will reduce the cost of HazMat.

    Shipping costs are included in the pricing (but not insurance and handling). Graf's generally has decent pricing, though.

    It is a good sign.

    Like Seedtick posted, not long ago folks were happy to find primers at all.

    OR find someone locally to you to help spread the cost of shipping and HazMat. There is at least one other person in your city. I've found a couple and that has certainly helped defray the cost of the HazMat and shipping.

    I usually buy online components in a group buy. I often setup the buy when my stock level reaches my inventory "par level" or if there's a good sale. I call up several shooting/reloading buddies and usually their answers are "Heck yeah!".

    With 3-4+ in a group buy, really cuts down on the HazMat/S&H cost to the point where it is negligible.

    If someone else finds a good deal, we email/text messages - Network so you can reload/shoot cheaper! :D

    That's a lot of 209 primers for someone that only uses them for in-line muzzleloaders!! LOL
