Go to gunbot.net, follow the yellow brick road and you will find them in stock at a number of places. Powder Valley isn't one of them...

Widener's and 3rd Generation seem to have them.

I doubt you are going to get a price break until you buy by the skid load. But if you buy more, it spreads out the HazMat fee.

CCI are overrated. Grafs has Fiocchi cheaper in the 12000 case or S&B even cheaper. Wideners sells the S&B for less, but doesn't have any.

I've used all three of the above (CCI the most), and S&B are my favorite.

Thanks men for your opinion, I think I will try some S&B and Fiocchi SPP's. I still have some CCI to compare to.

I picked some up yesterday at the local Cabela's. They've had some on the shelves regularly for months, along with Winchester, Remington, and another brand I can't remember

CCIs are great primers, as long as your Glock has stock striker spring in it. I shot 10's of thousands of them and never had a problem.

HOWEVER.... as soon as you start adding competition parts (namely, light striker spring), you'll have problems. I would get around ~7 per 100 that would not pop the first time, and some wouldn't even pop a second time.

Federals are what I use now, but like I said.... if I didn't (mostly) shoot a competition gun I'd be completely happy with CCI.

What's the price difference? I don't buy more than 5000 at a time.

You should if ordering online. Just to spread the hm out. I try for a min of 10 units; 1# of powder or 1k primers as a unit.

I've tried CCI, Tula, and S&B now. S&B and CCI were both easy to seat in mixed brass, and Tula sometimes took more force that I think is reasonable. I've only ever had one not fire (a CCI), and I blame it on myself - I must have not seated it far enough - because it fired on the 2nd strike. Given that S&B seem to seat ever so slightly easier than even CCI and they're cheaper than Tula, I think they're my new favorite. I got in on the sale on S&B primers at Cabalas a month ago for $18/k :)
