As you might imagine I have had to clean up my language quite a bit for this posting. After yet another unsuccessful tip to the shooting supply store (looking for primers) I decided to write this post and share some frustration. Most people that reload do it for various reasons like getting stable loads or saving costs. There are however a very small number of reloaders taking advantage of the rest of us. They will be referred to as "Dirtbags" from here on out. I am of course referring to the handful of Dirtbags that are buying primers by the thousands, and then trying to sell them on line for 5 - 10 times what they paid for them. People who are trying to take advantage of us during hard times are definitely Dirtbags and border on criminal. I have written to CCI and other primer manufacturers and they have assured me they put on additional staff to try and produce more but to no avail. As long as people but them up 5 and 10 thousand at a time the rest of us are pretty much hosed. I hate to see it, but some of the local shooting supply stores are starting to impose "limits" on the number you can buy. Here is my answer to the problem. DO NOT buy second hand primers on-line. Make the Dirtbags sit on the primers they bought till they rust away to nothing. As long as people give in and pay their outrageous prices they will continue to profiteer off of us. Now I understand this is America and people like to make a profit, but enough is enough. Lets stand together and force these Dirtbags to stop trying to gouge us just because they think they can. Thanks for reading.
