Online Powder/Primers

Where does everyone here buy there primers and powders? MidwayUSA doesn't seem to sell them.

Honestly, unless your buying HUGE quantities, after you pay the hazmat fees and shipping and handling, its usually cheaper to just buy the stuff from your local shops. Work up a deal with them....usually if you buy it in bulk(i buy mine 8 pound at a time or more) they will cut you a good deal.

Ok, thank you. I just checked and it looks like Kings Gun Works doesn't carry reloading stuff but Lock Stock and Barrel near here does...

Hey Commando!

If you are referring to King's Gun Works in the Los Angeles basin area, you might try "The Stockade" in Westminster. "Cliff's" in - uh - somewhere in Orange county used to have reloading supplies in bulk.

And the Orange County Gunshow always has an outfit selling bulk powder and primers at fairly decent prices. Probably the Del Mar show as well. I'm not sure about Glendale.

Take a look at the GI Brass website. Depends on how much powder you want as to how reasonable the HazMat and shipping charges.

I used to buy at Gun shows. But after traveling for an hour last time to find out that no one was there selling reloading supplies, I decided that the $20.00 Has-Mat fee was cheap compared to the gas I used to drive to the show. Also the prices at this site are good.
