Sale for local pickup only, or are they shipping them illegally?
I've picked up SP 10mm brass. The others, wait a few years...if they're not already out there, they will be.
Hit your local gun shows. Here in northeast ohio I get there right when they open and I have seen plenty of all types of primer and powder. I was surprised they even had plenty of service rifle powders. Good luck fellas
I have some Large. Federal Match and CCI. I really could care less about. Probably sell them on Gunbroker. With that coin I could Buy a G35/22 and sell my G20. Not a bad Idea really.
I ran into one guy who wanted $85/1K and refused to ship or go down on price. Another had his listed for $105/1K, firm, I called, he really wasn't lowering his price. He said, "I may not get my price, today, but someone will pay it." I fear he may be right.
(Still have 2 'bricks' of these.)
I feel for some of you guys... at least here in the Seattle PNW guys within the true shooting community are supporting each other. I paid $30 a K for a couple boxes of primers at the last match and passed it onto a friend who was struggling to find components.
I would only be so kind to a noob reloader. The exp guys should have known better. The guys I know ordered up in Nov/Dec, they are fine. The noobs though, all are crying that they can't get supplies.
Finding something and passing it on is one thing. I did that with 2k of Montana 124 at the shoot this weekend. But depleting my own stores is a totally different can O worms.
I agree hold on to what you have, i think we might be in for a long period. Like i said i missed the bus on this one. They will start to return slowly I just need to pay more attention and stay on top of what i have and need. i slowed up the last year from shooting because it was becoming expensive and i figured i would wait till my son aged a few years. Now he is 10 and came to me and asked to go shooting. i went down all happy. Opened the box and seen i had only 2000 spp left.
thought no big deal just go and pick up about 5000. NIF LOL
It's like the stock market, only better. Buy low. Sell high. If it doesn't sell at your asking price, you'll use them yourself eventually. Who would have thought you could double (or more) your money on primers in 6 months?
You just have to be diligent and watch the various vendors sites. Powder Valley had SPMs today. A few local guys put the word out and several guys put orders in.
Same with parts and accessories, I picked up a brand new Surefire 60 rounder for $135 today and 4 NIW Gen 3 Pmags for $25 each.
I've only been reloading for about 2 years and I am well stocked on primers for everything I need. Working at a large firearms retailer helps but I have been seriously stocking up since this summer. The only small pistol primers I've seen since December have been small pistol magnum which is perfect for me because I load a lot of .357 sig using slower burning powder, Longshot and Blue Dot mainly.
I do feel bad for people just trying to start loading because it just isn't possible to go to your LGS and grab everything you need in one day and just hit the bench when you get home. Hopefully this will all calm down soon. Even if the AWB and or magazine capacity limits pass the ammo/supplies aren't going anywhere except for peoples basements and ammo cans.
Stopped in Bass Pro tonight and they have Win SP bricks for $49.90.
Is that their normal jacked up price, or have they gone higher recently?
That seems to be normal price these days locally...
I stopped by a local shop today. They had Winchester SPP, Federal LRP and LPP in stock. All $49.99 a K, plus tax (One K of each a day limit).
115g PMC 9mm was $16.99 a box on 50, one box a day as well.
Normal price but I have not seen bricks on the shelf in a while. They have a 2K limit.
Primers up here in NE Ohio are a real hit & miss game these days. I will hit my usual stores and shops for weeks and it seems like everybody's shelves are empty. Then someone will get a random shipment of primers in and if you happen to be there - your in luck, if not...
I have seen a bit more stock on the shelves this last week than I have for a long time now. No where near what It was 2 years ago but it does seem to be a bit better as of late.
Best advise is you had better buy them when you see them or your just not going to be doing any reloading & shooting.
I was doing my semi-regular craigslist search for reloading stuff, and noticed someone local has posted CCI SPP for $70/1000! Says he has 10k to sell.
Assuming we don't end up w/ any absurd new gun laws on the fed level (which I still believe).. I still think we're probably looking July/August before the craze on actual firearms begins to slow... I think components will probably (hopefully) begin to show back up around Dec/Jan.
