    Not that I'm endorsing Cabelas over anywhere else but I just recieved their newest Shooting Bench catalog & CCI #400 primers are on sale for $19.99 a thousand. Item # is TGB-21-0757-400. Just a heads up.

    Isn't that funny the cost of materials hasn't gone down. Wolf has made a significant inroad I like it.

    Or the primer manufacturers built up the inventory a little too much (from the shortage) and are now selling off the overage.

    I would say CJ is spot on, aggressive buying & manufacturing = surplus. Good news for those that could wait. Look at AR prices today, lots of bargains.

    Better stock up now. Another election right around the corner and the hoarding will start soon.

    Great deal. Midway is selling 400s for $30.99/box. #: 959699

    Add to this that I just received a Cabela's promo for $20 off order of $150.00 or more. If you need to lay in a bunch of primers, this is an opportunity.

    Buy low when you can. I use strip primers so I got a bunch of 450s in APS strips for $23/box recently. Now the same primers are $37.99/box at MidwayUSA.

    Forum Boss, where are you finding your CCI strip primers, every time I'm looking to purchase them they either out of stock of way over priced. I was unable to locate BR2 & BR4 strip primer anywhere a short time ago.

    RJ,

    I bought them from midway a few months ago when they were on sale. They had about 20 1K boxes of CCI 450s at that $23 price and I bought 12 1K boxes. They were sold out a couple days later.

    I really like the strip primer both for the hand priming tool and benchmount priming. I also use strips for all my handgun loading on my RCBS progressive. I can switch from small to large primer set-up in less than 1 minute on my RCBS 2000. Try that on a Dillon! ;) (I know guys who bought a second 550/650 Dillon just because it was so complicated and time-consuming to switch primer feeds.)
