Im new to reloading, and have found that finding primers (small and large pistol) locally is practically impossible.  I tried midway, cabelas and bps online and still no luck.  Are these really that hard to come by, or am I just looking in the wrong place?  Id rather not pay a rediculously inflated amount because of how hard they are to find, so is there anywhere to order primers for a decent price?  I understand the fees involved in ordering online, but I have no other options really.

Somebody who is near you will probably know of some or may even have them. Will keep my nose to the ground for you.
 A friend said this site has them:  powdervalleyinc.com

when one looks online patience is a virtue , especially in these days , powder valley does seem to have the best prices when they have them in stock

http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/

yesterday they had br-2's today they dont ,if possible buy all u can afford under the same hazmat fee ( cuz we cant seem to get around that )even if u have to go in with friends to do so ( kinda spreads the fee out ) sometimes u have to search all the online suppliers but any more sadly gun brokers prices are about what the higher end retailers sell them for

Where is North Western Viginia, how far are you from the Cabela in Wheeling W.V.? They have primers on the shelf for the second time in 7 days.

i just keep on checking the shops, i drive 3 hrs to the one i usually find primers at.
i save the money i would have spent on them and take it the next time.
if they have them i get that many more.
i was down there recently bought some i-4895 and some 2400
and a bunch of large primers.
time before that i ended up with some brass,and some aa- 2230.
i take what i can get when i can get it, it adds up eventually.

Fryboy, thanks for the link to Powder Valley!  Made my first order - they have the WOlf Large Pistol and Small Pistol primers - the ones I need most right now.  Each is $25.50 per 1000.  Ordered two 1000-packs of each!

Their Hazmat is still $22.50, whereas MidwayUSA is now charging $25 for Hazmat!  And their CCI Large Pistol primers are running $32.99 per 1000!

I found one place yesterday that is within an hour that sells Winchester Small Pistol for $40/1000 or Remington Large Pistol for $46/1000... to me that is high, but if you only need 1000 at a time, its cheaper than ordering online and paying hazmat.   If anyone is in the area, it is in Winchester, Va and the place is Steele Reloaders (540-535-1212)

40-46 is rediculous.
i paid 40 for fed sr match and figured that was a bit much.
the wholesale is still @ 115.00 per sleeve. on regular primers.
be patient they are starting to trickle out, but back orders are being filled first.

he's referring to 5 boxes of 1000 in a larger box so 5000
in truth i suppose one could call the individual packets of 100 a sleeve it seems i recall reading of some one seeing those @ $5.39 with no price break that would make a carton of 1000 most of 54 bucks ..wow ...plus tax and/or hazmat and/or gas/time etc if one has friends with the same needs close sometimes they can go together to help defray the cost etc but somehow i dont see the prices comin down anytime soon [bummer]lolz
