    I just got the new Mid-way Master catalog. And it looks like anything to do with Reloading has gone up 20 percent. In the new Catalog.

    supply and demand. They were sold out of a lot of their stuff. You couldn't get a press from them for a while so they are making up for it. I know their cost went up on a lot of that stuff too. Also suppliers like to ship to their paying customers, midway (from what I've heard) has been taking the walmart approach (net 90) that hurts the smaller companies that have material cost. They would rather ship to the payers than the long term IOU's. Try Grafs, they have been consistent but a little more than midway in the past. Now I think they may be cheaper.

    I do most of my on-line buying from Mid-south. Good price and fast shipping. I really don’t need anything, other than my 8 month back order on primers and powder. Just like to look through the new catalog. I do order from the others. And if I get desperate Mid-Way. I have noticed over the last couple years. Their prices have been going up. And they just don’t have the good sales they use to.

    Everybody's prices are going up. I don't see any going the other way, except for a sale flyer every once in a while. Get what you can when you can afford it i guess.

    Shoot as much cast as you can and everything else buy in bulk.

    I also recieved my Midway catalog yesterday and was surprised to see the cost increasing.....but why?..... according to Washington, inflation is at zero ??..... maybe Larry P. didn't get the memo !!!!!!!!
