Just bought some primers. They are now $25 per 1000 at the shop I always buy at. Seen some the other day at Knob Creek that were $29 per 1000. It is getting ridiculous. It does not seem that long ago I was buying them for $10 at the gun shows. Between the cost of lead bullets and the cost of primers, I am gonna have to come up with a less expensive hobby, or shoot nothing but .22s. I know I have shot much more .22s here lately than I have in a loooong time. Actually, it is kinda nice to be able to shoot and not worry about the dang brass (shooting .22s).
