Seems high but would you buy at that price or try to haggle? @Slamfire @kerreckt
I'm not familiar with that specific primer, but even for the more mainstream domestic ones it's high. I think $0.075 - $0.11 is what I would expect to pay.
Would these be local or would you need to pay shipping/hazmat? If the latter, expect the to-your-door price to be closer to $0.20
i remember people back in the day saying they would never pay $2.00 a pack for cigarettes
I might if I had no primers in reserve and absolutely no other options. That said, I think there are other options for the OP:
- Powder Valley had CCI 500s for about $55 recently, though you would need to pay hazmat. Still it would be less than $0.10/primer.
- I've seen primers for $0.075 to $0.12 each at flea markets.
- Academy gets primers in, not sure the price but likely $0.06/primer (probably limited to a sleeve of 100)
- Midway occasionally gets them in, likely would be $0.11/primer to your door.
local guy, I may see if he’ll take less. If not I’ll wait.
helpful, not sure when they’ll get stock but I’ll hold for a better price. Thanks
