    I just paid about 55.00 for them at Bass Pro Shop. I would normally shop around but circumstances dictated that I buy them NOW. I seem to remember paying around 25.00 for them last year. I believe I just got screwed (with myself as a willing participant), but how badly?

    At the local gun show about 6 or 8 times per year, a case of 5000 primers is between $102 and $107 depending upon vendor. They were $97 per 5000 until July, then went up 5 bucks. Do the math, this is about 20 to 21 bucks per thousand.

    Bass Pro is the most expensive I have seen. If I have to buy fast, I go to the local Cabells, 29.00/K. Otherwise I order by 5000 at Powder Valley.

    Just as I thought.

    Nobody to blame but myself. It won't happen again.

    I couldn't buy 1000 the last time I was at Cabelas. They were out. I bought their last 400. I think they are about 18 or 19 dollars per 1000. I'm worried they are going to go up in price because they are in short supply.

    At my local funshop Winchesters are $26.50 per thousand, going to go up to $31.50/thousand end of the month.

    5,000 Winchester #1-1/2 for $122.99 (delivered) from Graf & Sons in March 2007 - that works out to $24.60/1,000. I'd expect them to cost more today.......

    The last ones I bought were $2.99 per 100 for CCI's. I tried to buy 1000 but the shop didn't have them on hand so I bought what they had on hand.
