Crazy pricing for primers

I hit VA Guntrader, looking for bullets and brass. WTF, the asking prices on primers is crazy. $175 for 1000 primers of all sizes.

Been like that a while now. I can’t find spp now so I guess supply and demand. I’ve got enough for a while but will but more if they are reasonable. My 9mm stash needs to grow.

Last year it was toilet paper. This year it's primers. Hoarders, bots, and profiteers.

Testing a price ceiling.

Has pricing gotten bad enough to perhaps be capable of pushing buyers out of the market? Because uncertainty remains such that folks badly want to make buys.

Everybody has their own answer and pain tolerance. Who knows where it will settle. Alot yet to play out.

Damn it, I am actually thinking about saving my SPP when I decap the 9mm cases and buying some prime all powder. Someone should sell that stuff wet, where it will not explode and ready to use.

When it hits $1.00 per primer I will sell my stash and retire.

I can wipe my butt with leaves. I can't ignite my cartridges with leaves.
