    Best sites for my supplies

    Hey everyone, I'm finally getting a reloader for Christmas. I ordered the lee classic 4 hole turret press, a tumbler, and dies for 9mm luger and .308 just to start out with. All I need to do now is find the best sites for my primers, powder, and bullets. Would you guys mind sending me some links, so I can start my price comparing? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah last two weeks they moved every thing around in that end of the store it looks a lot bigger but the selection is kinda, eah? but it is one of the only stores in the state that carries Dillon equipment.

    http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/ One more good source for powder, primers and bullets in bulk. The biggest problem with powder and primer purchase is the f'ing HAZMAT fee the Government leaches tacked on to them. It started out at $5 bucks in the early 1990's and now it is $25 bucks a package. Unless you're going to purchase a case of powder or primers it isn't cost effective to buy these by mail. I use the internet prices and factor in shipping with Hazmat to come up with my price per 1000 primers or lb. of powder. I then usually go to a gunshow and look for a dealer that can beat that price. They buy in huge bulk loads so their cost is usually lower than if I buy direct.

    Thanks for the advice Schuetzenman. I noticed that the Hazmat fees are ridiculous for the powders too. It kind of defeats the whole reason for getting into reloading; I want to save money in the long run, not waste it on Hazmat fees just for 2lbs of powder. I guess I'll have to wait until I can order a whole case of powders and primers at one time to make it cost effective, or price things out at gunshows/local dealers.
