Hello:
Are these prices the norm, or are they to high? I started to reload again and this is what I was charged the other day.

1 lb. of red dot powder =$18.95

Federal primers $3.50 per 100

Hard Magnum shot, size 7 1/2, $34.99 per bag

Winchester AA 12 gauge wads $15.00 per bag of 500

all seems normal or slightly better than the prices I get on shot anyway, maybe a little pricey on the wads but I don't load winchester's so can't say for sure.

Primers are about average. The wads might be a couple bucks high. The shot is about $4 bucks high. This is according to the prices i just paid in my area a week and a half ago. Of course area to area prices vary. They are not terrible. My prices for mine were as followed straight from my ticket:

2000-W209 Primers--$59.00

6 bags Lawerence #8 shot--$186.00

8lbs Green Dot--$98

4 bags DownRange Fig 8----$28.00

Steve: For those quantities those prices are about right. You'll find the onky way to save money is to buy in quantity. Currently I pay
Win W209 28.00 per 1000
DR XL-1 78.00 per 5000
Promo 75.00 per 8lbs
West Cst Mag 30.00 per 25lbs. Without the cost of hulls this come to about $3.55 per box.

Your prices = about $5.00 per box.

Hope this helps.

Around normal.

But out of line to say the least!

Had the percentage of price increase been on something other then shooting products, there would have been a call for congressional investigation on price gouging! let alone the inflation factor!

Stl Flyn:
I live in Wauwatosa, a suburb of Milwaukee. The place I purchased supplies from gets their supplies from Midwest or Recobs. I use to have a Mec Grabber years ago and started using walmart's Federal shells over ten to 15 years ago. Recently, I purchased a lee load all and I am having a blast with it. I only shoot one to two rounds a week since I got ill and that little reloader is perfect for the amount I now shoot. I have to admit I was shocked at the cost of reloading supplies from the time that I last reloaded shells. Most people make fun of the Lee reloader, but, it's durable, drops a consistint load of powder and shot. I also purchased their scale. That took time getting use to, but I now understand how it works. I use to reload PB powder years ago. Here was a load that was just devasting on targets. pb, hard 7 1/2's, brown Federal 12 s4 wad, Federal gold medal hull. I can't remember the amount of PB without looking at my records, I think it was around 21.3 of PB? Thanks for all your responses.
