    I'm just getting into reloading, and was wondering where I can get the best prices on powders and other supplies. I read, somewhere, of a website that had great prices even with the hazard fee. I forgot which site it was though. Where do you all buy your powder?

    Graf's has always seemed to be the best for powder shipments. If you can get a large order together, that will be the best bargain no matter where you order from. 3 guys and 8# each and then you've got a decent order going and the hazmat fee is manageable. Last shipment of powder I got was from Midway because of sale prices and the other guy was placing the order. I still buy some locally too, it's usually around $21-23 per lb around here, so it's not too bad in a pinch.

    I am lucky enough to have a small reloading shop 30miles away.He sells me H380 and IMR4350 for around $20.00/lb.I also get my primers from him so I don't pay the Hazmat fee.If I reloaded on a larger scale and bought powder in larger quantities as a lot of guys do, I could justify getting it online and pay the hazmat fee.

    The last time I looked the Hazmat Fee was around $35 on powder, no matter how much you order. For that reason I buy my powder at a local shop. For me that's a round trip of 100 miles!
