From the Horse's mouth. I suspect primers are the same way. The Wholesalers have become scalpers. They know that they're sitting on a highly prized commodity. Why sell for normal prices when you can double or triple that? Vampires trying to suck the blood out of other shooters/gun owners.

About a week and a half ago, our local Bi-Mart (Pacific NW company - small town stores like a mini-Walmart) had three bricks of CCI SP primers. They were selling (max two boxes= 200) for $5.75. Likely the new price instead of $3.50 when the supply chain finally catches up.
I doubt that it has anything to do with China and has a lot to do with the whole manufacturing & supply chain being out of whack due to COVID scares and restrictions!
