    I know there are alot of reloaders out there. I was just wondering what is the cheapest store out there for reloading supplies.

    Where are you located? The hazmat and shipping fees would make mail order a bad deal if there is a decent supplier in your area.

    Ask at your club. We order shot and supplies all the time. If your club doesn't order supplies then ask about other clubs in your area.

    A not for profit club can buy at dealer pricing from many distributors (Graf & Sons for one). We have a club member that has a FFL and he takes orders and gets us reloading supplies at his dealer price. He picks the suplies up so there is no Haz Mat charge. All he wants is a contribution to his gas.

    Midsouth used to be great; haven't reloaded in years, but worth checking out. I bought metallic stuff from them for varminting and the occasional large tub of Green Dot. Worth a look??

    None are actually cheap, but some are less expensive than others.

    I think Recobs in Wisconsin have the best prices I have found. The service is excellent also. I would support a club but around here they dont have much

    Be aware that most states require sales tax to be charged by the club for these items club members are purchasing. If (and I can assure you from experience, when) the club is audited, it will be responsible for the taxes. It can be a substantial amount, depending on how much is moved through the club. Our club doesn't do this any more for this very reason. Your club's board should, at the very least, be made aware of the possible liabilities. Our club now makes bulk purchases through a local gun shop with a store front, and pays him the sales tax. It's a bit more money, but we're off the hook and we're supporting a local gun shop, which are becoming harder to find these days. (P.S. I am not with the IRS!).

    Reloading is not cheap. But, it's cheaper than AA's or STS. Don't reload if you like cheapie shells. It's not worth the effort. Unless you just like doing it or your trying to build up your right arm......

    Like the other posters, I would encourage you to check at your club or another local supplier. If you have to look outside your area here is a list that actually answers your original question.

    http://www.grafs.com
    http://www.gamaliel.com/
    http://www.conniescomponents.com/
    http://www.recobstargetshop.com/index.htm
    http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/
    http://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com/
    http://www.midwayusa.com/

    Graf's pays for shipping costs, but charges a $4.50 handling fee. If you have to order powder or primers, there is a $20 Haz Mat Fee. Try to get a group primer/powder order together with other shooters to split up the Haz Mat fee. Recobs will do up to a 70 lb box full of primers/powders under one fee. Grafs will pay the Haz Mat fee and shipping if you order more than 32 lbs of powder. Hope this helps. Ken Carlton

    Cigar, I'm with you.

    Recobs has the best customer service of any reloading supply house I have ever talked to or bought from along with great products and prices.

    Gamaliels and Grafs are good also.

    Location makes a huge difference in bottom line cost, I suggest placing a large order and picking it up at the store or will even deliver to an event the supplier is attending to save all shipping costs.

    Are you looking for someone to come over and load them for you too?
