    Reloading supplies

    Just getting back to reloading after a couple years away. The question is where do you all find the best deals for brass, bullets, powder etc? I was only loading for .357 and .41 but I now will be loading .380, .40, also. We had a shop about 20 miles from my house that was as cheep as ordering online but they have closed due to the owner retiring. Thanks for any advise you can give me.

    Good luck finding reloading supplies. It took me a month to find 40 S&W dies. New brass is in short supply and so is certain powders and bullets. Midway USA is a good source, but its like everything is on back order. Natchez Reloading is also good. Try E-Bay, Gun Broker and Auction Arms too. Finding reloading supplies especially handgun and AR-15 is drying up. I don't know if it is Obama panic or the Gov.

    Quite frankly, at this time it's not where you can get the "best deal", it's where you can get it at all. Most reloading supplies are very difficult to come by right now.

    Good luck to you!
    I have been doing a scavenger hunt lately. I was in search of some jacketed hollow points in 9mm .357 and .45. Local gun shop I was at this evening only had .38 double end wadcutter and one box of .45 semi wadcutters. Forget hollow points, forget anything in 9mm. As far as rifle, they did have three bags of .223 brass, no 9mm, no .45, no .38 or .357 or .308.
    The only primers were for shotguns. They did have my powder though.
    Last time I was at Bass pro they had some bullets. I will look there tomorrow. Cabellas sometimes has some stuff, but you have to check the website daily or you may miss what you are looking for.

    Brass, start hunting it at your local ranges. It is the cheapest you'll ever find.
    Landric posted some great links to which I'll add Natchez Shooters Supplies. Also Montana Gold Bullet, Incorporated - Kalispell, Montana makes some superb product.
    If you feel like going whole hog, you may want to cast your own bullets. You can buy lead online or hunt it on nearby tire shops.

    The ranges around here would be .22 only, everyone saves the brass to reload themselves or for a friend. I could have a ton of lead if I started to cast my own bullets but I have never tried nor have the equipment.

    Could I have your lead?

    Casting actually might be the easiest part of the whole thing. You just have to be careful with fumes and the molten lead.

    primers are hard to find. that is the big problem. i am now using mag primers in my loads. that is all i can find at the stores. the price has gone up to $39.00+ tax for 1k. what a rip off. everybody on line is out. no brass to be found at the range, except 22lr. next it will be powder, the price has gone up per pound on it too. the prices of reloading items will go high before it is over.

    You might actually want to look into casting your own. I am seriously thinking about it myself. While unpacking in my garage I found brass and primers and powder, but struck out when I was shopping for bullets the other day. All that other stuff isn't worth a whole lot unless you have some lead to put in front of it. And if the horror stories are true about taxation and other regulations people are thinking of it might be the only way to keep shooting affordable.

    ETA: Regarding what Frank said, I was shocked at the price of powder! The way everything else has gone up I thought powder would be through the roof too. I actually paid about $5.25 less for a pound of Reloder15 yesterday than I did four years ago in Maryland!

    frank, I have about 1000 each small and large pistol primers right now so they are not an issue for a little while.

    Miggy I will mail you some lead one wheel weight at a time.

    I was getting a little worried because I'm down to around 3500 LP and zero balance on SR primers. I've got plenty of SP and LR primers on hand. I've been looking for about 3 weeks to buy primers and powder.

    I just got in 10K in WIN LP and 2 pounds of Ram Tac today, and last week I got in 5K of FED SR primers, 8lbs of WW231, 8lbs of AA2460.

    Most of it came from Powder Valley. The LPs had literally just come off the truck when I ordered them, they don't have time to update their website.

    The above should get me through the summer with what I already have on hand. The only solution I can see is to find some from a mail-order supplier and when you do buy big to minimize the impact of the Hazmat and shipping.

    .223 bullets alone have gotten me to the point I broke down and ordered a .22LR conversion kit for my AR.

    It's getting to the point where you almost have to stalk the delivery trucks to find anything.
