    Scheels isn't too bad for powder in 4 or 8 Lb jugs. They have primers too at about $40/K. Shot is $40/bag of WestCoast. Not exactly cheap but I don't know of any substancially lower prices.

    Regardless if you're in the market for shot or not. If you are in the Reno area, you need to stop by Scheels. It is the Largest Sporting Goods store in the world and it is an experience. Very knowledgeable and professional help. You will definately like their gun area.

    Thanks I've found Wester Bullet in Carson City which is supposed to be a lead foundry, I'm going to be there this weekend and will check out all these sites including Scheels and Cabelas. Thanks

    If memory serves, there was a thread a while back that said the West Coast plant wasn't dropping shot any more but they were acting as a warehouse for the parent company that also makes Lawrence Brand. Ron

    That's correct! The plant at Mound House which is just east of Carson City has shut down.They make it in St Louis and ship it to Santa Rosa to a werehouse for furthur shipments.I don't know about them still useing the old plant for a distribution point.PJ
