Trying to get back into reloading its been an eternity since I bought components
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 1:41:19 PM EST
More than they used to be, probably not too bad these days.

Right now I'm seeing small pistol and rifle at about 32/box. Large primers at about 42. Match quality about 2-5 buck premium.

I just bought a case of 5k small pistol primers for 28/box. Reloading is very much about buying in bulk.

You got fucked. I'll help you cut your losses and give you $20 for them.

Correct, $42 is $6. too much per K

I bought 1k small pistol for $34 today.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 1:51:48 PM EST
I haven't purchase primers in years so it might be the going price

If you can, purchase as a 5k container

At the Indy 1500 gun show last weekend they were $30/k

I pay $30/1000 CCI small rifle or pistol primers, but thats a super great price from a local FUDD shop who has not increased his prices for 2 years.


A normal local dealer sells them all day long for 40/1000

You did fine.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 1:55:54 PM EST
I've been selling them for $35 a brick. If you buy a whole sleeve, even if you mix and match to get you to 5 bricks, I'll go $150, or $30 a brick.

This is for Winchesters, face to face in the St. Louis metro area.

But not to turn this into an EE thread.

In summary OP paid too much, but it was only 1k
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 1:57:26 PM EST
Seen them from 30-45/K lately. You're in range, but not a great deal.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 2:05:11 PM EST
i wouldnt pay that much... but its less than you would have paid 5 months ago....
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 2:08:06 PM EST
$32-$36 plus tax seems to be the rate locally at Scheels for what I've been buying.

$6/k over the going rate for primers is no big deal when you are looking at 1k rounds of loaded ammo unless you are a manufacturer.

That's not bad.

Brand? that is about 6 bucks more than I can get Winchester or CCI down the street and 12 bucks more than wolf/tula a few more miles down the road. OK, but nothing to brag about.

I got 2 lbs of Varget at Walmart for $27.98/lb. Take what you find when you find it.

Yea local at the sporting goods store, I have enough components to knock out 500rd of .45 so either way it's a win
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 2:43:13 PM EST
I can remember when primers were $8.95 for 1K.

And lead was FREE, if you had a friend who was a plumber or who worked in the newspaper press room.

$42 too beau coup. Paid $35 this week for WLPs

Fuck the primers...

How much did you pay for powder? (Recent purchase)

Link Posted: 10/26/2013 3:05:36 PM EST
$142.50 for an 8 lb keg of IMR 4759 and I gladly paid it.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 3:06:41 PM EST
39 to 45 bucks where I am now. About average I would say. Used to buy them for 29 a thousand.

Link Posted: 10/26/2013 3:08:36 PM EST
My local guy, sells me 8 lbs of AA2230 for $130

Bullseye is 21 a pound.


I think his price is too cheap, but its his shop to run as he pleases.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 3:14:02 PM EST
I paid $39/k for small rifle winchesters today. I needed them, and there's only 1 place in town that sells them.

You're dating yourself.

I still have Winchester primers in the orange and white packaging.

In the grand scheme of things, you have them. You could have run all over town shopping and maybe saved $6. Not freaking worth it. Spend $10 in gas to save $5. You could have said "$40? Too much" and gone home empty handed. $10 in gas to neither save not spend. Kick yourself if you spend $100 too much on something. A small ticket item isn't worth fretting, unless you're buying a lot of them.

Depends on the Sporting Goods manager, my local one does not but there are several stores Beckley, Elkins and Fairmont that I know sell reloading equipment.

Nice. Never seen it anywhere around here.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 4:48:39 PM EST
primers in general are still around $33 per 1k around here.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 5:02:39 PM EST
high. Wal-mart here has them @ $38, and Cabelas 3hrs away is @ $34. If i was out and needed them though, I'd buy.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 5:14:47 PM EST
Thats avg
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 5:21:26 PM EST
Just bought 2k CCI 450's for $75.

So I'll be up to 5k of those primers, about 1k empty brass, 1k bullets, and no powder and almost no reloading equipment.

WTF am I thinking?

In my area at LGS this is about right at current prices.

I miss just a couple years ago when they were $15 cheaper.

Build yourself a magazine! They're not difficult to build. Grandpa used to have one for black powder. He'd buy Goex a hundred pounds at a time for anvil shooting.
