    Small Pistol Primers reach $1,800 per 5,000

    ..on Gunbroker.

    Have more than you need? Time to sell.

    I know, not very creative but it is factual.

    You could easily get $200 / 1,000 for small pistol, small rifle, CCI #450, #41. Others ~$175+ per 1,000. Can't ship them legally without the proper license.

    I'm only bartering for what I need / want. Guys like me aren't going to pay now for just a primer more than we paid for factory loaded rounds 1, 2, 5 years ago. But others...full-blown panic it appears.

    Just go to Gunbroker, do an advanced search on 'Completed Items'. It's shocking what a couple of pounds of unopened desirable (for .223) powder is selling for.

    That's insane! Last week I scored 10 small pistol primers in a baggie from these dudes and they were only 15 cents each...

    Sold 5k wolf small rifle and the buyer stood me up had to file with gb.and that was when I sold them 50 bux a thousand final bid.
    Now they are back in storage.
    Kinda glad they didn't sell bought a handgun that uses small rifle primes.

    I think I'll just keep them, not worth the headache of spending more time trying to get listing fees removed for items that were not paid for by window lickers that buy items that cost more then they make in a two week check.

    That's one thing ebay has over gb they handle the non paying trash for you right down to relishing.
    To bad they are socialist commies when it comes to firearms and related stuff.

    Slimshady ill have to get those dudes pager numbers from ya so they can hook me up on the down lo

    Well this is odd.

    First, 8 pound 'kegs' can't equal 75 pounds no matter what math you apply. It's either 72 pounds for 9 kegs or one is opened and not disclosed.

    Second, the Seller has only a single 'F' feedback for apparently trying to screw some guy who only bought one keg. https://www.gunbroker.com/a/feedback/profile/2784477

    Either way that's roughly $70/pound for a LOT of powder in inconvenient containers. That SOMEBODY really wanted...

    The gun show yesterday several tables had primers 5k boxes were $1200. Powder was $45 a pound. Worst price for powder was one guy with it marked $75 a pound. I scored primers and ammo at Bass Pro at normal price by just walking in at the right time. I suggest don’t panic buy and be patient.

    Last week I drove about an hour to meet a guy who was selling a lot of powder, brass and bullets; he is moving out of the country and his prices were fair.

    We met at a Bass Pro and I walked in to browse. Figuring the answer would be "No" I asked the guy behind the counter if they had any primers. Turns out they did and I bought all 1,000 Federal 205M for $54.00. Weird.
