don,t cheer to much, they are not going to make them to lower the prices. they see a plan to make money. it may put more primers in the supply chain, but i don,t see their primers being sold for much of a price reduction.

This plus the new Hornady primer plant and maybe there will be some progress on getting ammo back in stock. This is very good news.

Is the price of primers tied to the prime rate?

Regardless, the addition of 400 jobs should be a boom for the Hooks, TX economy.

More primers in the "system" is a good start. I hope they provide some data that can be used for comparitave purposes. For one, I was satisfied with "pre-Covid" primer pricing.

Hello Bruce, I think you are still in Africa?? I just sent payment to Bulls Eye Taxidermy to have 3 of my animals mounted, it has been years since I have had anything mounted. I hope Ronnie and Jimmy had a good hunt down Kimberly way. Anyway, so nice to have met you Bruce, it was wonderful meeting you and spending time with you in camp. I hope your store closure and building sale go well. Cheers, Andrew Fike

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
