    Most of the ones I got at that price have been used. Now we get to pay the higher price or quit reloading - ain't gonna happen.

    Yeah, I got 2,000 Federal 215 Magnum LRP's back in osama's reign that cost $45/1,000. It was way too high at the time but glad I got them to feed my two Weatherby rifles. I have another 1,000 that I had bought for twenty something dollars further back in time. 3,000 primers for a Weatherby hunting rifle is a lifetime supply for my purposes. I've just now almost used the original 1,000 that I bought back in 1987 for my 460.

    Out of curiosity, where did you buy them from, was it Powder Valley or another source? I wonder if they just got a bad batch in stock, as I have generally heard good things about that brand.

    Also, good to see another Tulsa Guy on here.
    I bought them online from Norma. They won't accept returns on powder or primers. Not sure I want to be the final quality control guy either.

    Bi Mart, in Grants Pass, OR, finally has primers, mostly CCI.
    They are running at $.08 apiece.

    I haven't seen LRP or LP primers in my LGS for a long while. Plenty of SPP, SRP MAG and BR primers to go around though. Managed to get 1k LRP and 1k LPP at an auction last week. Paid 75 for one and 85 for the other. Surprisingly didn't have a bidding war for them. SPP bids got a little dicey.
