Default Midway has primers

Just a public service announcement for those of you who may need some, Midway got some primers in this morning. You can only buy 1K and with shipping and Hazmat it's probably about 6 1/2 cents each, but that's a lot less than the 15 cents each that won the last GunBroker auction ...

When I started reloading back in the early 70s, I bought S&W/Alcan small pistol primers for 99 cents a hundred. A pound of Bullseye was around $10 and I got cast wadcutters from a buddy that I supplied wheel weights to from a tire shop. Pretty cheap plinking back then. Guess I’m getting old.

Put that $10 in an inflation calculator and see what you get. I put it in to see what it would be in 1975 and in todayís dollars it would be $47. Not exactly a bargain.

I remember when a Porsche 356C was $4000. So was a new Lincoln. That was the early 60ís. Gasoline in my area was regularly 24 cents per gallon and I remember my dad buying it for 14 cents a gallon. Heck I bought it for 17 cents in the early 70ís. I bought a new International Scout II 4x4 with about all the luxury goodies you could get at the time except it had a 4 speed transmission. It was $8500 which was a huge amount then. A new 1973 Porsche 911E was $13,000.

I bought H-4831 powder in Houston Tx in 1974, for $1.99 a pound. Believe it was WWII surplus.

Time traveling is fun. My pop bought an acre lot on Corova Beach, NC in the early 80s for 6,000.00. Just a patch of sand that was zoned fronting what would have been the beach road, if there had even been a road there. He sold it 7 or 8 years later for 48k when us kids were all in college. Who knows what it would sell for today....precisely because there still isnt a road to it. You have to drive the beach at low tide, or boat across the sound.

Gas was a quarter a gallon, but that quarter was silver. A silver quarter will still buy a gallon today!

Zinc quarter, not so much.

Grandpa built an 1100sqf house in San Carlos California back in the early 40's. He did it all himself and was in just over $8,000. My uncle recently went by and was taking some pictures of the house. A neighbor came out and chatted with him and said that it had recently sold for $1,200,000. Sure wish grandpa had held onto a few of the places he built over his lifetime.

Not that I needed them---(buying for friends), but I picked up a brick of Winchester WSP primers yesterday for $30. Not retail but from an older gentleman that could no longer handle pistol recoil. He is still a major "small bore Wildcatter" and loads and shoots weekly. He also turned me onto 5, 100ct bags of 158gr JHP bullets at $10 per hundred. Most of the primers I am loading are marked $9.90 to $13.90 per brick---makes me smile every time I open a brick and find the receipt tucked inside.

If you have it delivered to your house then yes, you pay HazMat.
