Hi... I went to a gun auction on Saturday. It was actually only what they refer to as a gun smalls auction. Ammunition, reloading equipment and components and associated products. I was amazed at the prices that primers went for...up to $170 for a thousand primers. Absolutely ridiculous... I couldn't stay for the entire auction, so I didn't see what some of the reloading equipment I was interested in went for. The bidding was intense and that really made for a long auction. I was there for just shy of five hours and it was obvious that the auction was going to last at least another five hours. I only managed to pick up a couple of things. I did get a decent deal on a box of 500 commercial cast 215gr LSWC sized at .430. I will reserve them for my .44Special revolvers. They cost me $30...my favored supplier charges just over $50 for the same product. I also bought unfired 100 nickel plated .44Special R-P cases for $14. I think that's a pretty decent price these days.
