I've spent time in the UK and France and was amazed at how much more expensive things were. I didn't look at reloading supplies but camera equipment was nearly double what I would pay here. Other items like kitchen appliances were amazingly expensive. A dishwasher about half the size as the ones in the US were twice as expensive. Gas (petrol) was more than twice US prices. I still don't understand why there is such a huge discrepancy in European and US consumer prices.
