Seems like the availability is getting better and the prices easing off. There can't be many things cheaper to make than primers. Powder Valley doesn't have CCI 450 small rifle but lists them at 24.50/1000. Natchez lists, (out of stock), CCI Small Rifle for 25.21/1000. Still high. Can't cost a half cent each to make them.
Shipping as well along with that idiotic Hazmat charge of 22.50 per 50 lbs. Thanks again for the good governance!
