Where do you buy reloading supplies, inc. Primers?

Recommended Posts

Seems Powder Valley is again shipping everything.. I just purchased some supplies through them.. the odd thing is that now Federal primers are the cheap ones and Winchester and Remington are more money... They also have Tula primers for a lot less money (used to be Wolf). They seem to have an adequate stock of most items now.

Powder Valley has a good stock. Ordered 16k of CCI 400 this morning then found them $5/1000 cheaper at Cabela's (19.99/1000).

Problem is that Cabelas rarely has them in stock - if they do you generally have to beg one of the gun counter guys to go and find them and even then they don't know they're on sale thru their "bargain cave".

+1 on Graf and Son's. They have CCI small pistol primers on sale now too (the cheapest I've found).

Powder Valley, here, too - except when I buy stuff from guys that are getting out of the sport or something like that ;)

Hi-tech ammo has decent prices on CCI small pistol and rifle primers. 120 per 5k. I think the large pistol were 130 for 5k. No hazmat charge if you buy 30k helps also.

Powder Valley has been kind enough to ship 4 bulk orders (100 pounds each) of powder to me in Hawaii when other vendors could give a shit. Also bought primers from Powder Valley and Grafs shipped via UPS air. Its hard to get supplies locally, especially the good stuff like Vit N320, N105, Solo 1000, etc when the local stores only bring in a limited selection sporadically. Bullets from Precision, Precision Delta, Powder Valley, Midway, Montana Gold; anyone who has the stuff in stock.

A customer turned me onto Berry's Manufacturing. The sell quality plated bullets, with free shipping for orders over $50.

Unfortunately, they appear to be pretty pricey, now. Their 124gr JHP is actually more expensive than Montana Gold (when you buy MGs by the 3750 count case) - MG covers the shipping, too. Their 180gr .40 FMJ is slightly cheaper (about $6/K) than MG's. In .45, the difference becomes pretty notable, though - the Berry's 230gr FMJ runs about $20/K cheaper than MG. So, perhaps a good option for .45 shooters, and maybe worthwhile for .40 shooters - anyone shooting 9mm, though, not so much...

I am not poor but I don't always have the cash on hand to buy by the case. I can buy 1000 at a time and still get free shipping. If you try to buy 1000 from MG you pay out the ass.

My m&p also seems to like the plated bullet better. It's a little bit bigger if a bullet, probably grabs the rifling better.

Montana is very good but their prices are no longer an advantage. My last three orders were from Roze in 9, 40 and 45 all JHP. Their tolerances are great and if in stock I have it in two days, of course they are only a few hundred miles away. Right now primers are anywhere from $26 - $35 for the same brand/style.

Powder Valley again seems to have a pretty good selection right now, but, I would not wait too long to check it out and order.

I like Powder Valley and Widners for primers and powder. I am buying Bearcreek moly coated bullets from a local here in Tucson,AZ. Prices are really good for .40 180gr, only $73 per thousand. I have had goos luck with them and they are the cheapest thing going.

I just bought 2 eight pound kegs of Solo1000 powder from Brownells.

They had 10% off last week and that saved me just about the cost of the hazmat charge.

Plus the price was right.

Last year I did some checking before I made my yearly component order (not counting bullets, just powder and primers).

I filled out the order form with the stuff I needed on the websites of several suppliers and compared prices, including hazmat and shipping.

The final comparison went as high as $1400 to as low as $1000.

You really can't say one place is better or cheaper than another. What you can say is that it REALLY pays to comparison shop before you buy.
