    From Powder Valley

    (click on specials)
    CUSTOMER APPRECIATION SALE!!!
    FREE HAZMAT AND FREIGHT - Order two or more cases (10,000) of Tula primers and we will ship to you free of charge. No hazmat, no freight. You can add up to 40 lbs of additional product to your order under the same hazmat.

    I was planning on buying 10k primers and a keg of powder anyway...


    anyone have experience with tula primers? I could accept 1/100 failing because they are just plinking rounds, not competition or serious defense... but if they are 20% bad or something, I'd just shell out some more money for cci or something and pay the hazmat.

    I took advantage of this deal - put my order in over Christmas weekend and had 10,000 primers and 12 lbs. of powder delivered to my door last Thursday. No Hazmat and no shipping or insurance charges and low prices - who said we'd never see $20/K primers again?

    I'm not worried about the Tula primers; they're the same as Wolf primers and I've used over 10,000 of those with zero misfires.

    They have always gone bang for me. The problem that I've had with them (as well as a few others) is that they seem to be a bit over sized and "catch" when seating them in certain brass. Snags on a progressive press can really slow things down so I don't use them in 9mm any more. They seem to seat fine in my 38spl and 357 so that's what I use them for.

    If given a choice I will always spend a couple more bucks for CCI.

    +1 Cheap primers that slow down production are no bargain in my book. Plus, I'd rather spend the money with an American company. Yeah, I'll spend a few more bucks per brick to do that.

    So you save a few bucks on Tulas and CCI, Winchester. Federal, etc have to close a line. Is it really worth it in the long run not to support an American component company?

    I think the current special is only free shipping with 5,000 Tula primers.

    Wolf and Tula are not cheap primers. They are every bit as good as anything else. I have had zero problems seating or shooting them.

    One thing is certain is that they keep changing their sales. The primers I bought a month ago are now $30 more per 5K.
    Just keep checking the big guys site and when they throw up a sale you like jump on it right away.

    That's an interesting comment to make on GT. Are you worried that when you buy a Glock you might be "closing a line" at Smith & Wesson or Ruger?p

    Nope, Glock is opening a new plant right near me. Glock employs a bunch of folks in Smryna, GA. They have from the beginning. They have expanded the facility from the first. Glock also supports the NRA and our second ammendment rights. Glock sponsors the GSSF, which has added shooters to our ranks.

    Besides, I also have S&W and Rugers.

    What does Wolf do for the US? All I see are cheap primers trying to take maket share away from CCI, Federal, Remington and Winchester.

    I think that's what Jack would call and Oxymoron.

    Brought to you by the quality AK folks. :supergrin: But hey, there's a value to crap. Makes good fertilizer.

    The Russians have done better than we have with space stations and they invented (lasik style) eye surgery for better vision.

    Besides if there is one thing they have mastered in the last century its how to kill people. Billions of AK cant all be wrong!

    Well, how many bazillion rounds did it take to kill to thousand people? :supergrin:

    There is a need for crap, the AK fills the bill nicely. They do make better Vodka.

    Nice, nothing like seeing a deal for free hazmat on powder and primers then seeing that the "deal" was 6 years ago...
