Doesn't help that it sounds like most primer manufacturers recently increased prices by about 25%. Just straight pass through on margins would mean street would be around $48-60 depending on the primers. Midway might be big enough they are buying direct from the manufacturers, but if they are also buying from a supplier/middleman that probably means a bigger markup still.

Of course not happy about it, but if primers normalizing around 10cpp means there IS availability, that is a hell of a lot better than $200-300 for a box. With loaded ammo being $.40-1.00+ a round, 10 cents a on a primer probably means you are still reloading a hell of a lot cheaper than buying commercial ammo. I'll of course hope prices come way back down.

I got the discord note and luckily had my phone all set up for my account and purchased a box. I have not received a ship notification or cancellation yet.
previously, I'd have received a cancellation by now.

yeah i'd keep tuned to midway, more primer drops this morning, same crappy price though and they limit you to 1k so can't spread out the shipping/hazmat charges.

Looks like Midway isn't selling primers by the case anymore.

I missed a drop of CCI 5000 box cases I think 2 days ago but I did get a notification today that Winchester by the 5000 was discontinued

I also got notice from Midway that they are discontinuing notice for primers by the case. Only option is primers by the 1,000 and limit of one. Haz mat fees are going to hurt since can't spread out the cost.
