    Just got 3K CCI primers in from Bruno's along with 3 lbs of IMR4198. Now I can reload 40s&w again and try some new recipes on 223.

    Won't tell what I paid for the primers:(

    Dont need to, I live round the corner from them.

    Youch. Hopefully I can find some LRP soon or I might have to pick up a couple hundred from them.

    And your point?

    This is more like a tweet than a post.
    (and how much were those primers?)

    Like I said, if you want to reload, and are new to reloading, then you pay the price. If not, then don't. Your decision. I made mine:neener:

    I emailed Bruno's & told them what I think of them.
    Of course I got no response.

    Here's the email I sent:

    I don't know, Amy seems to be making sense in the posts she made. She sounds reasonable to me and if you live near them you will save money not paying S&H + Hazmat even at the slight elevated prices they are now charging. (JMHO)

    I was in Cabela's in N. Fort Worth last friday and picked up 1000 LRP for their usual price of $37.95/K. There was a limit of 2000 per customer per day. They had only a couple of K left, so I just got one. Maybe next week I can score some SPP. Did have a friend pick up 1k SRP about a month ago he paid $79.95 plus tax. I asked him why and he said "because they had them and I had the money." I can't afford those kinds of prices, so I will let the prices drop before I buy anymore.

    Oh please, how many times does the definition pf gouging have to be explained? It's a free market - don't like their pricing? Here's a hint - DON'T BUY FROM THEM and you can't be "gouged" - you either WILLINGLY pay their asking price or you don't- in either event you did not get gouged

    If you think you know how to run a small business, especially in this commodity and this market, go ahead, and open up shop and undercut everyone so you too can have no inventory to help keep your doors open and employees paid.

    "A lady walked into her butcher and wanted to buy some cut up chicken - "How much is your cut up chicken?", she asked. "$3.79 per pound", the butcher responded. "But Harvey across the street sells it for $1.79 per pound!" she said exasperated. "Then why aren't you over there buying his chicken?" asked the butcher. "Because he doesn't have any", she said. "Well, when I don't have any chicken, my price will be $1.79 per pound too" said the butcher.

    Learn to do some price comparison shopping and stop whining
