I have a fair amount of all the primers. But the cost and shortage has really taken me out of the mood to reload. I have as much fun with a 22 or 22 mag as I do with 357 and beyond. At a dime apiece for primers and that or more for the bullet it puts the cost right at 22 mag ammo. Walmart has the 125 paks of 22 mag for 27.00 not to bad.
I agree Al, I have enough components to last a pretty good while, but I don't want to burn them all up.
I still want to work on some loads for the Creedmoor, and have plenty of all the necessaries, but will probably just wait till closer to Fall to worry with.
Been buying up the 22 lr stuff, heck even at .10 cents a round it's still a ton cheaper than loading most.
Even though I have .04 cent or cheaper primers, and cast bullets of mine own at a nickel or less a piece.
Not sure what it'll cost to replace.
Heck Summer is coming on and I can occupy my time with scooter riding, fishing and some tinkering with the ole hot rod, for a spell.
