    Anyone got a line on small pistol primers in Houston? My usual honey hole dried up, and the one place I know that has them, limits you to 2 boxes, and I have a 45 minute drive to get them. I wouldn’t mind buying online and paying the hazmat and shipping if I could get a few cases, but some of those places limit you to 1 or 2 packs (not sure who the hell would pay the $12 hazmat fee plus shipping for one $4 pack of primers) I can find large pistol and rifle primers all over, but no small. I keep checking the Academy’s around me thinking that one day they’ll get a shipment in, but it’s been weeks and they don’t have squat.

    I'll have to give them a look.

    I just bought a 1,000 Federal 100s from Midway.

    Even with shipping and hazmat they were cheaper than buying them from Academy, who charges $3.99 a box, no case discount. I bought 5 cases of primers, and since anything under a certain weight was the same hazmat charge, I bought some powder too.
