    you're nine months late.

    Back in April I ordered 20,000 primers and 16 pounds of powder from Powder Valley. The order was back-ordered. http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/

    Last week Powder Valley called and asked if I still wanted the order, although they still didn't have 5,000 large rifle primers that were on the order.

    Heck yes.



    Now for THE QUESTION.
    When I ordered the primers they were $22.50/1,000.
    Since then the price of a thousand primers has increased to your right arm, your next born or your really hot girlfriend.

    So, how much are the primers now?

    $24.00!!!! Really!!!!!



    One question though.
    If you hug the UPS man should you take him out for dinner.:)

    Was the UPS man shaking, sweating and walking very slowly with that load to your door? :wow:

    Sounds like a good haul.

    No, this was a light weight load.

    When they use to sweat was when the cases of Korean 30.06 ammo was so cheap.:)

    WOW, good price. Stock up. :)
    The lowest price I saw at the gun show, a couple weeks ago, was $30. Most dealers still wanted $40.

    I wish.:)

    I think they have my place flagged as the dirty old man residence. All I get is men.:supergrin:


    The regular UPS driver is a good guy. He opens the gate, which FedEx, won't do, and drives up and leaves the box on the porch if I'm not home.

    I'll never use Fedex again, after a couple of weeks ago they called me at 7:00 am,asking me to meet the driver "somewhere" and sign for/receive my delivery because I, quote,"Live kinda out there...."

    Told the caller I'd meet the driver at my door like I paid for......:supergrin:
