Best price for Hornady LNL

I did a little browsing and found the LNL AP at Midsouth for $384.99. Does anyone know of a better price?

Amazon - $419.94
Midway - $415.99
Cabellas - $399.99
Natchez - $389.99
Midsouth - $384.99

I have done business with Midsouth many, many times and they have always treated me right. Since they are my preferred vendor I was glad to see they had the best price (I could find).

Might pull the trigger on a new LNL after Christmas.

That looks about like the best price I've seen. Just check to see what the shipping costs before you order.
Especially if Cabelas has them on sale, they usually have free shipping on anything over $100.00. That has to be considered also.

If someone adds $40.00 shipping on when it's on sale for $10.00 less than someone else, you would have been better off paying the higher price and get free shipping like I did from Cabelas.

I'll be sure to watch for that. All in all Midsouth has never overcharged me for shipping ....... so far.

You might find better sales after Christmas as that is went stores are trying to reduce their inventory so they don't have to count so many during inventory.

When I recently purchased mine I had every site open and went clear through the process of loading my cart. Several had the LNL on sale but I wanted to see the bottom line. I found that the sale price did not always equal the final price being better. I ended up gong with Midway which was only a couple dollars higher and I already had an account with them. That was my experience anyway. I did learn that shipping was outrageous for some of the companies.

Bought mine from Natchez two or three months ago. I checked all the suppliers you listed, plus a couple more, right through to the buy button. Wasn't a lot of difference in the final, total price, BUT, Natchez was the ONLY one who had everything I wanted, in stock. Shipping on backorders can really add to the total cost, plus, it would not be good to have your new press but no shellholder for what you wanted to load.

and Midway is the absolute worst at this. They will send you a set screw, by itself a $.05 part, in a box that costs $10 to ship.

The LNL classic is a single stage, the LNL being discussed is a progressive. I have to ask why you're getting the LNL by itself rather than the Ammo Plant however? Obviously it's a fairly significant jump in price. I picked up the ammo plant, and haven't mounted the bullet feeder yet. But I'm thinking about asking the State of Washington to issue a marriage license for the case feeder. Twitchy to set up, and I'm still working out the .223 cases, they seem to be tall and skinny enough they want to fall over rather than slide, but my squatty .45 cases are a dream.

If you have your C&R and a dealer account at Graf's, they're $370.

I recently bought mine at Cabellas for $359, used a $40 coupon and purchased in store. IF you look around, its pretty easy to find coupons for Cabellas, was able to find some $20 coupons with almost no effort. You could probaby find a $20 coupon and free shipping pretty easy for Cabellas if one of their stores is not close.

Good luck!
