    online from powder valley is around 24-25 per 1000. just place an order of 10,000 or more and give it 6-12 months. when i run a liitle low i will buy what i need from a local gun store for 35 per 1000.

    I have found 6K of CCI SP primers within the last two weeks locally that worked out to be about $32/K after sales tax. Of course, the supply is not always there, and it may be months before I see that many of them again. However, I will continue to buy them by 1000 at a time when I can find them for that price around here.

    They are running $29/1000 at the local show. I just bought some private-sale for $120/5000. Deals will vary by locale. Online, Power Valley is a good way to go. Good luck.

    Don't forget the shipping and has-mat fee's when ordering on line.
    Found 1000 CCI small rifle primers for $32.70 at the last gun show= bought those. Local shop tried to get me to buy the same thing for $49.50= I said you're living in the past...

    Powder Valley did not have any primers nor did anyone else that I checked and I needed some small pistol. Cabelas had CCI for $29.99/1000 $5 shipping and $20 hazmat. That is $175/5000 or $35/1000.

    In central ohio - bought them locally last week for $29/1000 (on sale). they had butt-loads of them, and a ton of ammo. Hopefully things are easing up a bit...
