That's not too terribly bad seeing as the local price here is usually $35-36 per K in normal conditions. I just keep putting orders in with Grafs and/or PV and waiting my turn.

This is true. Saw a great demonstration of this first hand.

Primers

In my area they are making a comeback. Small pistol primers on the shelf. Supply is catching up with demand.

Check back with your LGS in a week & let us know.

I called my LGS (Specialty Sports in Colorado Springs) today and they said they had both SPP and LPP in stock. I made the 20 minute drive hoping to pick up at least 2k primers. There was a follow-up question that I should have asked.

They were selling CCI packages of 100 for $3.99 (no complaint with that), limit of 5 packages. Not 5 small and 5 large, but a total of 5 packages. So I spent 40 minutes driving to pickup 500 primers, but there are worse ways to spend 40 minutes.

Just bought CCI small pistol primers $30 per thousand. That was about $6 more than last summer but was glad to find them for less than $40.

I'm having good luck finding primers at my usual haunts. Just can't find rifle brass anywhere.

I walked in to my lgs, and the guy behind the counter asked if he could help me. I said, "probably not". He asked what I was looking for and I told him large pistol primers. He then handed me a box of 1000! I was shocked!!

Stuff is getting to the LGS, just not in large amounts & unless they are rationing, it's getting bought up as quickly as it hits shelves in most states. I got 5K WIn LPP last week @ $30 per, but it was a fluke thing. There were no other primers to be had from that source. I didn't need them, but hey, who knows how long this will last.

One of my usual haunts is little place called Rink's Guns and Range in Lockport Illinois. Yesterday afternoon, I called to ask a question about something totally unrelated to reloading (As if there was such a thing). Low and be-hold, they had small pistol primers. A lunch time, I got my butt over there in time to get my self a box of 1000. Only one box per customer. Dang! Prices were about $10.00 higher than the last time I bought primers (just before Sandy Hook). Hay, what are you doing to do. It's pay an extra 10 bucks or go without.

yippy ky yay!

That's a penny a round increase and one reason why you won't likely achieve $8-$9/box (50) for 9mil reloads unless you're working off of old stock and/or shooting wheel weights. Still cheaper than factory - and available if you can actually find those primers.

No, the prices were $10 bucks higher than before. That would be $45, wherethe last time I bought primers they were $35.

Point is that I can still make rounds (9mm and .40S&W) for about $8 abox. I still have primers, power, and bullets left over from back when primerswere only $35 dollar box, a few months ago. This higher primers price will increasemy cost be about .1 cent per round. Still makes reloading an awesome choice. Especiallynow.

It's improved so much so that a large east cost retailer,who is also a wholesaling distributor has now limited primer sale to 500 primer maximum.
In December they had a 2000 limit and February 1000 limit,so ya thing are defiantly not getting better,at least not on the east coast. SJ 40

If primers were $35/1K, that's 3.5 cents each. If you are paying $45/1K, that's 4.5 cents each - 1.0 cents more per round, or expressed in a dollar amount - $.01 more per round; a penny a round.

I suppose with prudent powder and bullet choices, and buying in quantity, you could still hover near $8-$9/box.
