    Hi All,
    Getting low on powder and primers (Win SPP & 231).
    Who would you suggest for 8#’s of powder and 5000 primers? I’ve looked at PV, prices look OK but wondering if I can shave a few $ somewhere else.. Thanks for any suggestions, best regards.

    Short of buying pull downs or canister surplus, I have not found anyone who sells for less.
    When you factor in the service and reliability of PV I rarely go elsewhere.
    Just placed large order last week to refresh my supplies.
    Good people at PV.

    Id order form grafs if you want to go that big. Free shipping aside from the hazmat fee.

    PV is definitely the place. No one beats their prices for powder or primers!!!

    I will have to vote against Powder Valley, this of course may be due to my location in the US, but Powder Valley prices SEEM to be better than others, however, the shipping calculator they use has too many zeros or decimals IMHO. YES the prices LOOK great but talley your shopping cart and call them for a shipping quote. Why? because they add shipping charges at will after you have submitted your purchase!! Dont miss this quote at the checkout page "Shipping will be calculated and added to order" Be warned the prices may be MUCH higher than Grafs if you do all of the math correctly. I was charged $45 shipping+$25 Haz for 5000 primers, one 8lb and one 1LB of powder...Powder Valley?? Never again!

    Hey JohnnyFlake, heads up Sportsmans Warehouse is re-opening on the 12th at the Centennial location, be there when they open, and I may save some powder or primers for ya :)

    Thanks for the information. I will check out the shipping charges and go from there.

    I buy mostly from Graf's but I get dealer pricing with a C&R license.

    Graf and Sons also gives me a C&R license holder discount, as does Midway USA, and Numrich.

    Graf and sons did have Win Primers on sale. 5000/$119. With that price and the Haz fee, I still saved about $8.00/1000 and about $6.00 on my 8lb of W231.

    I would also suggest Grafs but every once in a while they have a "sale" on the hazmat fees and will pay them for you. That would be the best time to grab some. They are having a sale on S&B primers right now, also - 5000 for $99.99 but I think they are already out of SP.
