    CCI 350 Large Pistol Magnum Primer box from C. 1980

    Remember when primers came in tiny little boxes, all lined up against each other?

    I remember them well. When I began reloading in the late 70's, those were the boxes primers came in. Being in a rural area, there were only 3 shops around the county that sold them. I still have a few trays of them in various sizes. It seems I'm always winding up with a few of something left over from the early days.

    I have over 100 bricks of those in SPP and LPP, been stored in a closet and they all still go bang exactly as if they were brand new!

    It’s funny to have a few bricks stacked next to a few bricks in the current Federal packaging.

    Lol, I just happened to be able to buy at the right time and have always had an affinity for accumulating primers.

    I dislike the federal packaging, its way over done, takes up all the shelf space, two 1k boxes Federal occupy the space of 10k cci large rifle or pistol. I thought manufactuer's were trying to reduce over-packaging.

    I still have several thousand that I use regularly. Just used some yesterday. Work as good as the day I bought them. Stored in military metal ammo can's in the house.

    I still have CCI primers in white cardboard boxes with green and black printing. They work as well as the 2-year-old CCI primers that are stacked alongside them and the 12-year-old CCI primers I got in 2009. They don't spoil if kept in consistent dry environments.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.
