Yenko, You are correct. I was checking out behind a man yesterday at Bass Pro who was buying 4 boxes of Remington Nitro's. I thought to myself, why not buy them at the club. It would have been cheaper. I guess to each his own. Hoosier
I buy where ever I get the best deals and thats usually Wally World because if they don't have it you probably don't need it ... Most Mom nad Pop places were eliminated over 20 years ago, its called progress so Get over it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
I buy my reloading components at Powderhorn here in Pennsylvania. They are a small business that has been here for a many years. The prices are always fair, and it's fun to talk with the owner. He and his kids are trapshooters.
When I am out of town and run out of shells, I go to the nearest place that I know sells shells, unless I can buy them at the club. But I rarely run out, since I usually bring lots of extras.
I buy reloading supplies from Gene Sears and Powder Valley. I use Alliant powder but Fio primers. I haven't bought factory loads in a year or so, but I bought them from Cabela's and Walmart because of a big sale or clearance I ran on to.
Virtually anything else I buy (non-firearms related) is, as Gold E succinctly stated, purchased at Big Box retailers (never Target, though).
I would love to say I buy only US-made products, but there is so little made in the US nowadays. I shoot a Ljutic, but I have Italian and Jap shotguns as well. All my rifles and all but one handgun (Croatia) was made in the US except for the Belgian made action (FN) of a custom wildcat. All my vehicles are US made. How much foreign parts are in them I know not.
The cheapest shells I can buy are the 4 packs at Walmart. The Remingtons are a little more expensive than the Federal and Winchesters. I usually buy the Federals. The Winchesters don't work well out of my auto. I can reload for a little less still and have a quality shell for far less than they want for the best shells at the store. I buy my reloading supplies from a couple of small shooting supply stores. The reloading supplies at the local Bass Pro Shop are so expensive that only shooters that didn't know any better would buy them.
George, Richland Shooter's Supply in Richland, PA (Lebanon County) is about 30 miles from Cabelas. It's about 20 miles West on Rt 78, then about 8 miles over smaller roads. It is a gun shop that sells tons of reloading supplies at superb prices. Stop there first to buy your supplies. You will save enough over Cabelas prices to more than pay your tolls and gas for the trip. You can always stop in Cabelas on the way back for anything else you need.
