Point well taken LD, however I never said I bought any at that price.
The thing is that up until this weekend I haven't even seen them on the tables at the gun shows. At least now people that have every thing but primers can at least start reloading.
I really do hope the prices will return to normal pretty soon though kinda running low myself.
Since I started reloading a little over a year ago I was able to experience the whole political escapade that developed. I'm glad I had the insight to stock up before the election affected the whole market. I feel sorry for the ones that took up the hobby around November or so of last year! From what I have heard the Carter and Clinton elections caused the same panic as this.
