Reloading supplies

I used to buy all my reloading components and supplies through midwayUSA. However, they ****** me off today. Any suggestions on other reloading supply places on the net?

I didn't realize they sold reloading supplies. I got the pilot I needed for $1.00 less to boot. Thanks for the rapid response, my part is already on order.

I ordered brass, bullets, and 338 dies a couple of weeks ago and got them a few days ago. When I went to trim my brass I realized I didn't have a 33 cal. pilot. The part was only $4.00 but they were going to charge me a $3.00 special handling fee.
It ****** me off that they wouldn't wave the fee. I expected to pay the shipping but not the other fee.
I'm cheap I guess.

I have been ordering reloading supplies, hunting clothing and boots, and a whole variety of items from Calela's for years. Since I am now retired and reloading my own ammo, they are a great source for supplies, parts, etc, and their customer service is the best on the planet. If you speak with their customer service personnel, you will find they are very dedicated folks and will ship most anything in one business day. I am sold on them!

Anyone need a 33 caliber pilot?

The saga continues. I sent an e-mail complant to midway about what happened. Guess what, Midway e-mailed me and they are overnighting my pilot to me at no charge. I'm not so ****** now.

I've bought from Midway for years, the thing I miss most is, they used to ship for free.

Reloading supplies

Shipping to CA may absorb some savings but in my experience TNTReloading.com has much better prices than I've ever seen at Cabela's. They are in eastern PA.

I agree with you Smoky. BUT, Midway had on another earlier occasion waved the special order fee for me. I made a $250 order and forgot to order a shell holder for my trimmer. I re-ordered, paid the postage and they waved the special handling fee, I was a happy customer.
Now that I think about it, I should be ****** at RCBS for not including these items on their trimmer. Both issues delt with a part for my trimmer. Kidding, I love RCBS.
This time I made a $120.00 order and forgot or didn't know I needed another pilot. My fault I agree, but as a consumer I believe in consistancy with the company. Had they not waved the fee the first time this would not have been an issue with me.
But I get my pilot tomorrow so I'm a happy camper again.
