Lots of CCI small rifle primers at Scheels in Eden Prairie Mn today, $99 per 1000.
I passed at that price.

I would have passed too. Good sign that we are seeing primers start to hit the shelves. When the shelves get stocked up, prices will go down substantially. It will just be a waiting game. I'm sure most of us here are well stocked up on primers, so we can afford to sit it out a bit. Let the guys that are hard up and didn't plan well pay those prices.

Better than GB anyway. Someone without any might jump at the chance. Be interesting to hear from someone that knows what the retailers are paying themselves.

If they were Rem's, probably would easily be worth that.
Might be quite a while before the green primers show up again.

CCI400s are the only primers I use that I’m low on.


Obey lawful commands. Problem solved.

Question for you guys. I like Rem 7.5 primers. Obviously, with Rem out of business and Vista taking them over do you think they will continue to produce new Rem 7.5 that had same attributes of the old?

On separate note, what small rifle primer would be a good substitute for Rem 7.5? Would CCI 450 be close?

Just picked up 5 cases of primers yesterday. CCI’s, REM 7 1/2, GMM.

Rearranged my reloading stash. Picked em up and moved them to a different spot. 😀

The 450's would be close, but CCI BR4, Fed 205, CCI 41 would all be good substitutes. There are others that would work just as well, like the Federal AR match primers or even the S&B small rifle primers for example.

@bsa1917hunter,

Thank you for your reply! I seen the prices of CCI BR4 during these shortages and I'll be looking at those other alternative you listed, lol!

Ha ha. I fully understand. From what I've seen, the CCI 450's are very similar to the 7.5's and BR4. There are charts you can check out online, but those 3 are very similar. I've heard some shops are getting in some small amounts of sr primers. Here locally Sportsman's has been getting in small shipments, but if you are a working guy like some of us here, it's damn near impossible to get your hands on any of those. I feel for the guys that are not stocked up and needing them... Good luck with finding what you need. Eventually we will be seeing more and more, but that is going to take some time..

Yes the 3 are similar however, I quit buying BR2 and BR4 when the price jumped from 36 bucks a thousand to 54.95 a thousand. Standard CCI’s, GMM and REM 7 1/2’s gave just as good if not better results than the BR’s for 20-25 bucks cheaper. CCI priced them out of the market years ago.

Had too, didn’t want to. It was easier than getting ready for the new flooring going down.
