We picked up 400 primers (200 limit per person per day) at Sportsmans Warehouse here in the Boise ID area. The price was $5.03 per hundred (i. e. $50.30/1000). Prices on gunbroker are much worse and all online sellers appear to be out.

I have a Ruger No. 1 in 22 Hornet coming and need everything (brass, primers powder bullets and loading equipment). We did o.k. today, getting primers and dies. :D

Isn’t Sportsman’s Warehouse great! My son
got me CCI Large Rifle primers for $3.25 per
100.

Got me a one pound bottle of Alliant
Reloader 22 also, $35.

I’d say supply and prices are getting better.

I got an email ad for a brand of primer I'd never seen before at somewhat less than outrageous prices. Now I can't find the ad nor remember the brand it was selling.

I was at Cabela's today. They had a somewhat nice powder supply, and told me until yesterday, they had primers in stock. They get more and more each shipment.

But I bought a pound of H110 powder for $39. I felt that was a fair price these days.

That's decent pricing , probably about the eventual New Normal we re heading for
BUT that's in conjunction with Rationing , not yet time for total rejoicing .

While primers are gradually trickling back , they are still mostly being used in OEM ammo production instead of as components . Wholesale prices for LGS are still high when they can get them . $90- ish / K is just normal dealer margins , not particularly gauging .

Supply is looking up here, too. While searching for that misplaced supply of 7mm08 ammo, I found 1000 small rifle, 2K large pistol, and 2# of H380. Still looking for the ammo-darn it.
