Stopped in my local gunshop Saturday morning, and was looking at some reloading supplies. One of the guys working there pointed out to me that primers were going up in price.
A carton of 1,000 Winchester small rifle primers had jumped from 35.00 to 50.00 dollars. All of the primers had been marked up; didn't matter what brand or size.
Anybody else notice an increase in primer prices or other loading supplies?

Last 200 bullets I bought were the same price as the last time. But it seems every time we go into an election cycle, everything firearm related goes nut-so! Pretty much what it boils down to, IMHO, we need to quit electing career politicians. It doesn't really matter which party they are from really... They are all starting to sound the same.

Powder Valley and my local shops' prices look to have gone up a bit, but not more than regular inflation, it seems. Paid $37 about 1.5 wks ago for WSR...
I would guess that your gun shop bought wrong- they bought from the wrong outfit or failed to buy enough to spread out the HAZMAT fee- which is now $27.50. They have to get their money back and looks like "tag, you're it"... gotta make that margin.

At least I've been able to get the primers I wanted, lately and that wasn't so when POTUS took office, but just wait 'til November...

Knew an old gunsmith who replied to a buddy of mine complaining when primers went up a dime to $1.10/100: "Ya cain't make 'em fer that".

 I have quit buying BR4's until I win lotto. The ones I have are relegated to stockpile SHTF ammo.

and the Supreme's just cleared the way for some idiot to try and "ban" firearms by just taxing guns/components- say a $5000/yr tax per gun or a $5/primer tax... they could argue that it doesn't actually ban firearms and the tax is legitimate.

With all that's going on, it looks like the handful of elites that really call the shots have gotten even more sure of themselves as all the governments worldwide seem to be quickly moving closer to what was described in the UN's "Agenda 21". We may be in for some interesting times.

Wiat until the government takes over health care and then denies you insurance because you own a gun and the tax law demands you have insurance. But you can only buy insurance through the goverment. And around and around we go.

Im sure this has nothing to do with politics but my local gunshop / reloading supplier has almost everything at LEAST 10 dollars overpriced. I saw an RCBS 505 scale for 160 dollars there. Now that is just ridiculous, I would love to buy things from my local dealer but his prices are nowhere near competitive.

And so I must drive across town for my supplies.

Should have been, but the founders never suspected that a majority of members of congress would WANT to become career "politician" and want to STAY there.  They thought everyone would be like Davy Crockett and just LEAVE after a period of time.  How could they conceive, after having created the most wonderful nation in history, that both the members of congress and the population would allow it to reach its current state?  How could they possibly forecast the corruption and laziness that would allow "Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and on and on" to exist?  Just wasn't something those guys who pledged "our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor" for this nation could even imagine.

If I remember my history correctly, Davey Crocket was defeated in an election by a candidate that Andrew Jackson supported. It seems that Davey Crocket went against Andrew Jackson on a bill to relocate an indian nation. Crocket was opposed to the bill and gave one of his greatest speaches in opposition to it. This infuriated Jackson, who was the archtitech of dirty Democrat politics, so he made sure that Crocket was defeated by a supporter of Jackson's. Crocket and Jackson supported each other when they were elected. However, Crocket put doing the right thing over politics, where Jackson put loyalty to him and the Democrat Party, over conviction to the people and the Constitution.
 Washington gave up power when he could have kept it for the good of the Nation.
 
At least that's the way I remember it.
 
Now back to prices.

I visited a gunshop in Bardstown Saturday, and checked out their prices. Doesn't seem like their prices are going up, at least for now. Their powder selection wasn't as good as my local shop, but their prices were better, they also didn't have a big selection in primers, or bullits. Rumor has it, that they are going to bemoving to a new location, so they may be letting their inventory run out for the move.
Does anybody have a link or Web address for Rock River Arms Inc.? I'd like to check the MSRP and features of some rifles I saw at that shop.

LOL  good eye!
Yeah, that pic was taken when the sling Was new... it's not leather, but a material called "Synthetic Biothane", but it still looks good even now. The holes haven't stretched, or anything.
What I really like about it is it doesn't need to dry out and is really grippy and stays put. The downside of the extra grip action is that it takes a little more effort to adjust my shooting position when "in the sling", but it doesn't stretch or creep around when all wrapped up and pointed at the target.
All but one of my slings are 1907 style and I don't use the one that isn't.
I don't have a super tactical rifle with bipod and all that, but all my rifles have slings, which is just about as good as a bipod.
I almost feel handicapped when not shooting with a sling.

He won twice as a democrat, was defeated when he lost favor with Jackson, was reelected as a Whig, and lost again in 1835.... telling congress "you can all go to hell and I'm going to Texas".  He became fed up with the lack of honor and attention to the Constitution...

Alan, do you shoot highpower matches?
I know when I use the 1907 sling and a shooting coat, it's like shooting off a rest or better; very solid.
 
I've got a patrol rifle class coming up this fall, and I'm thinkng about a new rifle for the class. They prefer that we have standard triggers for durability, and liability reasons. I'd like to have a free float picatiny forearm for lights and to take care of sling tension. Rock River has a setup called the Operator that I like (light weight forearm), but it has a 2-stage match trigger. Just considering options right now.

Have only shot one high- power match so far- came in second- which doesn't mean anything.
I plan to start competing regularly in service rifle and am presently taking steps to do so. One thing I'm finding is that there are a great number of people who are glad to share what they know to help others improve, especially newbies like me.

That patrol rifle class sounds interesting and right up your alley. Keep us informed on that, if you please.

RRA is responsive enough that they might build an Operator with a standard trigger for you.
Their customer service is out of this world... not only have they answered all my questions in depth, they've gone beyond that and anticipated my next questions and answered them too, with a healthy dose of great to know info thrown in.

I won't mention any brand names, but there are customer services out there who are just saying anything, right or wrong,  to get you off the phone as fast as they can. I don't blame the Rep, it's the fault of the bean counters and the HR dweebs who micromanage the Reps and forget the service.
