    I friend has recently started back reloading after several years. He was asking me where to get reloading supplies on line and where to get the best prices. He doesn't do internet but his wife does. Any help?

    Grafs & Sons is my favorite price wise lately.

    Midway is pretty good usually too.

    Powder Valley is good.


    Shipping powder and primers involves incurring a hazardous materials charge of $27 for each order, so you need to make big orders if you will be buying and shipping...

    yep.. midway and grafs.

    also.. check some walmarts and ganer mountains. their stores in rural areas generally have relaoding supplies.

    in fact.. we ahve 1 walmart in town that has a HUGE relaoding section.

    pawn shops that carry firearms are another possible location, as well as dedicated gun shops.

    lso.. hitting a manufacturers website may let you search for dealers in your area.

    My first two choices, too. 3rd is Wideners. Always check shipping charges and be careful re: HAZMAT fees from Midway.

    I buy powder and primers locally. There is a really good reloading shop in Indianapolis.

    Bullets I get from several places, but I think I've bought more from Grafs than anyone.

    I buy everything local period.Its cheaper than paying shipping charges and it helps my local economy and a family business.One more thing,cheaper is not always better.Usually the opposite.Its been my experience gunshows are not the best place to shop for cheaper prices on the things you mentioned.Now I have got some deals on brass and bullets.Last one I went to about 6 months ago I got a nice scope and an extra clip for my sons marlin 795.There was one reload vendor there and he had higher prices than factory loads.Just my experience.Oh and to answer your question Wolf and Tula are on the low end.I wouldnt buy either.

    i've seen plenty of discussion of people using them.. if nothing else.. they seem to report that they go bang.

    as for local cheaper.. I've only ever found 1 thing cheaper locally.. and that happened to be an rcbs reload press.. walmart had it cheaper than midway.. by a bunch surprisingly.. must be a bulk buy issue.

    local stores are selling powder 4-8$ higher than online.

    buy a few pounds and you made up the hazmat charge right there....
