On a related subject, it has been a while since I went to a show, so I went to HC yesterday. While at the show, I could find no primers or powder...Is there a rule or reg prohibiting at shows?

Then again, I may have missed them...

Dont think there is any law or reg for shows. Its just who are there and if they sell them.

Seems that I need to pay better attention in the future. Any suggestions for a local (Eastern Shore) source for more reasonable priced primers? Don't think I'll be going back to Bass Pro any time in the near future.
Yeah, I've been gouged by Bass Pro, too. I like when you ask for brick and they bring you a pack of 100 primers; who is buying 100 primers at a time??

DAG Ammo sells the Tulammo primers for $21/1000, last I checked. This was at the last Fredericksburg show. There's another one coming up March 17-18. The Tula primers are just a wee bit large, but not so much that they don't fit into the pocket. They also have a slightly higher brisance and cups about as hard as CCI's. They always go bang for me. Good bargain, those.

For the yellow brass .44 Spl and .45 LC, I tend to like the Winchester LPP's, just 'cause of aesthetics. Typically I see those for about $28/1000. Will find out March 17-18 if or how much they've gone up.

Was at the gunshow in Fairmont WV, with j8064, & buff7mm on Sat, we seen a few vendors selling primers and powder. Its amazing how one table sells the exact same thing the other one sells for a different price. Always walk the whole show before you buy, or before you pass out from the BO floating around.

I paid $31 for a case (1000) Win Large Pistol primers, and $21 for Win 231 powder. Not super cheap, but less then most gunshops Ive been running to.

DCR is correct...take a deep breath of fresh air before you go into gun shows. We thought buff7mm might pass out before he finally got outside. At the same show I paid $15 for a pound of BL-C(2) and $23 for IMR4064. Not too bad for these days. Primers were going from $31 to $37 a brick for various brands. I scored what I needed for $32. The days of 1 cent primers and cheap powder are, sadly, long gone.

In the interest of bringing this thread "back" I was just up at Cabels in Hamburg, PA today and they had primers there that ranged from 30 to 40 per 1000 depending on small vs large. Powder also seemed reasonably priced as well, i got a 1 lb Hodgdon Varget bottle for $26.
