Default Primer packaging

I'm looking at the old stuff I had.... and the new stuff I just bought....for twice the price I got three times the packaging and the same size and amount of primers .
I thought Kalifornya had enviro watching people ?
Perhaps we need to call Finestain to ban plastic too !

Federal is pretty generous with the packaging compared to everyone else.

And in case you haven't noticed already, our plastic bags are already being taken away! You live in San Jose, surely you've had to pay for paper bags at the grocery store. I know for sure San Jose and Sunnyvale have plastic bag bans. Mountain View's ban starts next month.

That's my point why make such a big amount of plastic for a little product ?
And it's all over in other areas as well...like an SD card ..Packed in three layers of 4x6" plastic.

Do you want your stuff protected while it gets hurled around the country? Or are you willing to have faith that every person at UPS handles you package with the highest level of care.

I order from Amazon a lot and they often package small items with tons of protection like those air pillows. I'd rather have all that filler material than deal with a broken item and subsequent return.

Federal has a softer cup and more sensitive priming compound.

Seem to recall some pizzing contest between Lee & Federal as well? I know there was some lawsuit or something.
