Midway shows Winchester USA Ready large pistol or small pistol at 79.99/1000

Sorry to hear you are retiring from CAS.  I would price them at the best prices you see at the biggest online retailers like Brownells, MidwayUSA, Natchez etc.  You will be doing them a favor due to no shipping, hazmat, or tax.  Plus actually having them.  If they think that is too much, then they may find themselves shooting .22's before prices maybe come down somewhat.

Reasonable is what they were selling for when they were in stock. Normal right now is closer to 100.00/1000 if you can find them. Kind of depends on how long ago you bought them and if you need the money, or just want to give some of your shooting buddies a good deal.

100/K seems to be going rate. And I’m sure you will have buyers at that price, especially with no tax/shipping etc. But…..if you have 35/K in them, selling to Pards at cost would be a nice thing to do. I sold 3K to a teacher shooter for 33/K back when they were really stupid, (in the 300/K range)

For me part of it depends on how much you have. If I had a substantial number to get rid of I'd prefer to split them up to more people as opposed to someone wanting every primer you've got. If I'm giving someone a really good deal it's for them to continue shooting matches, not so they can flip them for $100. I could do that myself. I've sold a couple of thousand to friends for $40. Before Christmas I put 2,000 primers in a plastic grocery bag and quickly put them in the shooting cart of a couple that I enjoy seeing out shooting together. I said Merry Christmas but don't mention it t o anyone.

I was asked a couple years ago from a friend about this very thing.. I had some Federal small pistol..

Like now you couldn't find them anyplace.. I told him I would check  4 different dealers prices.. (all of them out of stock of course) and average their prices.. he agreed.. said it seemed fair..

We did business..

Why not locate a few new shooters and sell them for what you paid for them?

 

Yes they are worth twice what you paid for them but locally we have more than one new shooter that cannot shoot because they cannot find any primers at any cost. 

 

Good Karma is always repaid 10 fold.

There was a time when primers could not be found.  While one's favorite primer might not be available, there are VERY often usable primers available now (right now Natchez and Midway both have CCI small rifle, which is what I'm currently using).  People may not want to pay the higher price due to hazmat and shipping, but that is their choice.
