I haven't bought primers in 20 years, when they were a penny a pop, less in quantity, so I had a bit of sticker shock at the gun show today (though not as bad as I was expecting from what I've been reading here). I paid, I think, $20.95/1000 for Winchester Large Rifles and Large Pistols. Fair price these days?

Funny thing, they had CCI Large Rifles and Large Pistols also at $20.95--but for a box of 300! Were these mislabeled or does CCI really believe their primers are three times better than Winchester's?

That's probably about right.

While there is usually a buck or two difference in price between brands that doesn't sound right for only 300.

I checked Midway and prices are $22-23 per thousand but they are out of stock on many. There was no 300 package shown for CCI.

Yeah, some places have cranked them up to $24.95. I just went to the Miwall sale and got Winchester WLRs for $18.95.

Damn prices!!!

Primers are anywhere from $22 - $27 / 1000!!!

BMG primers are $210 +/- per 1000!! The lot I bought was $180 / 1000 for CCI Arsenal #35's!! Now you can't even find them hardly!! Hornady 750gr A-max bullets just shot up to $54 / per box of 20 bullets :fire: !! Well you get my point!! I won't be shooting any more Amax bullets out of the 50 after I run out!!
