Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Now is the time to stock up on primers

They are available again. You couldn't hardly find any small rifle or small pistol for a while.

Cabelas has them for $24.99 a thousand for Sellier & Bellot Primers.

I stocked up with 5,000 of each.

That beats Wideners price plus no hazmat fee which is a deal killer unless buying a huge quantity.

There will be a hazmat unless you can buy it off the shelf in a store. There isn't any Cabelas near me. So I had to pay a $20 hazmat fee.

Last time I ordered powder or primers the hazmat was $28.50. Did it go down or does Cabelas use a lower rate? Hmmm?

Starting to run low on large pistol and small rifle primers.

I was pretty shocked when I saw prices at Sportsman's Warehouse last month of $40/1000 on small rifle primers.

Maybe I'll wander over and take a look. Sure wish Varget would come back in stock, though. I haven't seen that on the shelf anywhere, in more than a year. Reckon they are loading the non-existent .22 LR with it?

Not sure on their shipping costs RetVet but Hazard fee is $20.00 it appears per order. Yup some were charging way more for Hazmat.

Wideners hazmat shipping charge is now $30. Graf and Sons is the same. That's a deal killer in my book.

If you are a reloader like me that loads a lot, I am always using them up. Time for me to replenish my stock.

Yep. A thousand primers just doesn't seem to go very far.

Get together with a couple of buddies and do a "group buy" from Powder Valley. The last time I did that I got 4 lbs of powder and 2 bricks of primers and my share of the combined shipping and hazmat fee was $11.
