    Ramshot zip $25 for a pound

    .38 wad cutters/500 $34

    Federal small primers $44:crying:

    Called bass pro and they were the same price so I payed the exorbant price. Last ones I bought were $36.

    Have they gone up on line? Any reliable cheaper alternative.

    I thought the price on the lead and powder were ok...

    Molds, inexpensive Lee casting furnace, lead.

    I found a place with really competitive prices on lead, premixed in the old "Lyman" alloy, and if I order more than 60# they ship for free in the "If it fits, it ships" containers. (My mailman hates me)

    Jeeez. I just got CCI primers for $27 / 1000 at Powder Valley.com... Yeah, I had to max out the hazmat fee, but I needed some powders too.

    If not, split the hazmat with a friend.

    I saw their prices and have ordered in the past. Is the hazmat fee still $20? How is the shipping now? I guess you would have to order about 5k for it to be worth it...


    Thanks bsa

    I can get a slightly cheaper price on 5K from my local dealer when I add in the hazmat fee and shipping. My favorite shop sells primers for $31 per 1000. It takes at least 10K primers from PV before I start to see a savings. I like others max out the shipping weight on primers and powder to save money. Here lately though I've just been buying in bulk from my local guy. He cuts me a deal. He stays in business and I can live with the little higher cost.

    Just paid a visit to my local gun/reloading store... they had Federal SSP #100 for $27.99/1,000. No shortage either.

    I just had to pick up a couple K... just in case... you guys understand. :supergrin:

    How many primers can I get on one hazmat?
    Is $14/1000 + shipping a good price?

    It rarely pays to order online unless you buy 5 or 10 K at a time.

    Even during the election shortage of 08 my most expensive primers were $27.00

    Xshooterx, you better not wipe them out! I haven't ordered mine yet.
    Wideners has wolfe(both magnum and 556).
    I'm going to call them and ask about commercial shipping and maxing out the hazmat.

    50,000 is the max hazmat for primers. UPS charges $1.75 home delivery fee.
    Now-your turn to call, wait five minutes then ask if the shipping charges from the website include the hazmat fee.

    I may regret listing this but my local reloading shop charged me $29.90 per 1000, I think during the '08 madness. That was for wolfe srp!
