Is there somewhere, mailorder or the Internet, that I can order reloading supplies (bullets, powder, etc.) for a reasonable price? Unfortunately, I don't have much to choose from where I live.

VDoe, Here is a start for mailorder: Midway (everything except powder and primers) 800-243-3220, Sinclair International (benchrest items) 219-493-1858, GAR (molds and casting) 201-754-1114, Cabelas (everything) 800-237-4444, Graf&Sons (everything) 800-531-2666, Natchez Shooters Supplies (everything) 800-251-7839 among others. Be prepared in the case of powder and primers, UPS charges a $12 HAZMAT fee per order plus the actual shipping charges. As a side note, I contacted Hodgdon on this and was told that UPS in reality wants to ship as little HAZMAT as possible hoping to not at all in the future.

Have Fun

Thanks to those who have sent me info on TFL and privately. DUH! I didn't think about a HAZMAT fee!!

So let me ask this...locally I can get Winchester WSF powder for $19 (didn't look at the amount, but it's the regular size plastic bottle) and 100 Speer 165gr GD 10MM bullets for $15 (I'm reloading for a Glock 23). Are those good prices?

Are you a member of a gun club that has a FFL? You can get better prices by buying in larger quanities from dealers that only service FFL accounts. Can you roundup a few buddies that reload? There are lists of people with FFl's that would probably help order larger quanities of reloading supplies.
