    Went to local gun shop tonight, got 2000k small rifle primers at pre-Sandy Hook insanity prices. Oh and this morning at work my boss gave me a free Kershaw locking blade knife.

    As Ice Cube would say, today was a good day. Sorry I had to brag here because my wife doesn't care!

    Actually what she said was "I think you love primers more than me."

    LOL

    Why do you need 2 million primers?;)

    We go everyday at lunch and my biggest score so far was a box of each type of large, non-magnum primers, a Lyman powder funnel, and an RCBS chamfer tool.

    Good for you! My wife usually at least pretends to care for a moment.

    And to think that the local Cabellas had enough 209A primers yesterday that I purchased 3K without worrying that I had shorted another reloader or four his share.:D I see things are starting to loosen up some around here.:scrutiny:

    Plenty of shot shell primers at Cabelas last Sunday but little else by way of popular reloading components. Just got another e-mail from them Monday morning stating my order for .22 55GR FMJ placed on 1/6 remains on backorder with no firm delivery date.

    Last night my LGS sold me 1K Small Pistol Magnum primers for $37.00. Not sure if that's a good price or not, but now I can reload that small-pocket .45ACP brass that showed up on my bench.

    (BTW... any change in powder charge needed with those primers? I am considering using 5.0 gr of 231 with a 230GR Berry's plated round nose bullet. data.hodgdon.com makes no distinction between large and small primed brass in their data so I suppose it doesn't matter?)

    I just scored a pound of H335 for 25. I had the chance to buy a brick of large rifle primers as well to night bit since I did not need them I gave them back to the guy at the counter.

    I got an email earlier today telling me my Hornady 158 gr. .30 cal bullets are in, I ordered 2/100 round boxes, $23.99 a box ! I've waited 5 months for these, I am stoked!

    I could easily afford 2K primers and maybe even 20K primers if I really scrape up some cash but I don't think I could ever afford 2000K primers!!!

    You must be very rich and you must have found the last huge stash of primers available in any store in the USA. :p

    I can one up that. I was moving some boxes in my garage and came across 3500 LPP, 1500 SPP, 1,000 .45 bullets, a box of 7MM Nosler Partition, 500 .357 bullets, 2,000 9MM bullets, and 500 .38 bullets. Plus my old reloading book and a Dillon large Brass primer flip tray. I had totally forgot about those boxes in the cupboards.
