SW A-100/ oil primer dry time

About how long should oil primers such as A-100 take to dry and how dry should they be before topcoat? I used A-100 on ext. wood and old paint (scraped and sanded) about 4 days ago and it is dry in places but will still scrape off with a fingernail pretty easily. Not 'tacky' but kind of 'gummy'. Is this normal? I'm not a painter, I restore millwork and often need to prime. First time using A-100. Do I have a problem here? Thanks

Not trying to be smart, but what you are looking for is on the lable. And yes, it sounds like you have a problem. Did you paint over wet wood? Or is it really (really,really) humid where you are?
