Cheddite 209 Primers (5000/case)
** Limit 4 cases (20,000 primers) per order**
2022 Quarter 3 Primer Markets:
As we've promised, we are keeping you updated on the primer markets. Like every other product on the planet, these costs fluctuate almost daily.
A bit of good news (how's that for a change?): The strength of the U.S. Dollar versus foreign currencies has created some savings for us all. We are passing that along to you.
War and rationing of raw materials in Europe are still presenting massive challenges to European manufacturers. The steel that is used for ammo and component production is in short supply and is allocated by the suppliers. (Steel is necessary for making hull bases and primers.) The future concerns are that when microchips come back into full supply, the auto industry will boost production and start consuming more steel. This may make steel supplies dwindle and increase costs.
Importation costs (ocean container freight and inland freight) have more than tripled over the course of recent history. These costs are based upon demand (there are very few openings on ocean ships for hazmat goods), increased labor, and higher energy prices. All of these costs are beyond our control. Nobody has any idea what future price trends will look like.
The big U.S. manufacturers are utilizing all their primer production for their own ammunition manufacturing. All U.S. manufacturers have suspended component sales.

|I started using these as I couldnt get the Winchesters. Ive shot well over 10,000 of these primers and havent had 1 problem. They load just fine and they go bang just fine. Ive been shooting my best with these primers and reclaim shot! Happy just to be able to keep shooting during these times.|

|Never used a non-domestic primer in over 50yrs of reloading but this is whats available. Shot a couple hundred the last 2 weeks and can not see any difference. No adjustments needed to reloader or operator!!|
