    Yeppers, and all Wolf Primers are in stock for $18/1,000 with one exception, Shot Shell Primers are $20/1,000.

    Thanks again for the heads up.

    Thanks for the post.....just ordered seven thousand assorted. Even with shipping & HazMat they are still $7/1000 cheaper than I can buy locally.

    Except that the Wolf LP primers don't want to go into the primer pocket, and I feel like I'm going to dislocate my shoulder putting them in. And the ES and SD weren't as good as the Federals. No thank you.

    I just ordered 20k SP primers and am hopeful they'll work fine. If they do, $18.00 is a great bargain.

    alright, I'll bite.
    I've stayed away from Wolf because of concern over quality, but CCI/Rem are still hard to find. I'll give them a shot and hope for the best!
    Thanks for the heads up.

    How much is the Hazmat fee?? They won't tell you that until you put in your credit card. I won't pay first before I know. Anyone have that info???

    It's $25 for hazmat.

    I just ordered 11K primers, one pound of powder and one pistol mag, shipping was $12.40 to my zip code.

    Are these the oversize and over-hard Wolf primers, or has Wolf fixed that problem?

    The wolf primers are always a little hard to seat. I got burned on small pistol ones a while back, when the bad ones were going around. I still dont think I am willing to do it again, even at 18/K.

    FWIW, I have loaded and shot quite a few Wolf primers with no issues so far. I am not hesitant to use them and will not be hesitant to purchase more.

    Thanks, Ateam. I'm going to give 'em a shot. I've had nothing but fun shooting wolf 7.62x39 ammo, so maybe the primers will do me fine, too.

    Wideners has all the wolf primers at $18, not just SP.

    There's been a lot of complaints of Wolf nickel plated SP not consistently igniting so perhaps Brad could report back to us whether the SP primer problems has been resolved.

    As to Wolf LP, I have been using their bronze colored LP with very good results.

    I bought 10000 SP right before obama came in for this price and they have all been good to go. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more.

    My Wolf LP primers havent been a problem in my G21 with all stock trigger setup. The good lot of SP primers I got from them all went off in my wifes 686 and it has a very light trigger.
