Buying Primers

Post by Sasquatch-1 on Thu Feb 02, 2012 9:14 am

Hope this is the right place for this and not in the Swap & Shop.

Would like to know the best place to get bulk primers. I am looking at buying 5000 small pistol. Would prefer to stay with CCI or one of the better known brands and not go with the Russian made primers.

I am looking for the best price including Hazardous Shipping Fees.

Just wondering if anyone has found a hidden treasure out there beyond the first few pages of a search.

Wideners has CCI primers ranging from $23.50(SR) to about $29.00 (LP)per 1000

Not bad for an everyday price...

Generally I buy whatever I can find on sale but PowderValley http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/ has had the best prices day to day that I have seen.

Their website states $27.50 for Hazardous shipping, and "Our typical shipping charges are based on the subtotal of your order. Subtotal <$150.00, shipping $9.95; <$300.00, $13.95; <$600.00, $15.95; >$600, $19.95.". They also charge insurance that is .50 per $100.

Seems to me that if you are only (haha, only) buying 5000 primers, that it wouldn't be worth the price you will have to pay for the hazmat fee. I get my CCI 300 large pistol primers locally for $30-$32 for 1000. If you find them online for $27, that is a maximum savings of $5 per brick. You buy 5 bricks, that's $25, but then you also have to add in shipping of $10 and hazmat fee of $27.

5000 locally = $160
5000 online = $135 + 27 + 10 = $172

Powder Valley does look cheaper than Grafs.

Grafs is $129.99 for 5000 according to this:
http://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/category/categoryId/3504?

And Powder Valley is 24 * 5 = $120 for 5000 according to this:
