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.
