That's crazy. The price of everything is up. I guess I'll have to stop eating so I can keep shooting. :roll:
I just bought 1,000 DEWC cast bullets and have 1,000 LSWC's on the way. I've got enough shotshell primers to last a year and a half, large rifle primers will most likely last as long as I will, pistol both large and small I'll need some shortly. I have a friend with an FFL so will place a wholesale order for powder and primers. I may have to build an underground powder bunker out back when I'm through. I don't know if this recession will stabilize prices or if it's time to stock up. With the political situation thats brewing I inclined to think it's time to spend a few hundred dollars to save a couple hundred later or even be able to get components, remember the primer shortage under Clinton?
I agree, Terry. With the upcomming election, I think it is time to stock up...not only for monetary reasons, but also for political reasons.....
I have to order primers, because noone within 60 miles carries them. I just found Win Small Pistol Primers at Lock Stock and Barrel for $23.50/1000.....ordered 3000.....shipping and HASMAT fee was only $10.95.....
lock stock and barrel are good folks, i like the catalog they send out and sometimes you can catch some really good deals..............

i don't think we are anywhere near levelin' out on prices. i think they are gonna get a lot higher before they stabilize-----so high that i think a lot of folks are gonna be driven to reloadin' and others may quit shootin' altogether except for .22's...............
I think you're right deputy. The cost of components is getting crazy!

That pricing is excellent. When you take the hazmat fees into consideration it is equivalent to what Jerry's is charging wholesale.


I just ordered 5,000 Win SPP and the fee was only $11.95 to NH and they knocked the price per 1000 down to $22.50.
Except as it turned out they tacked on the $20 hazmat fee and never told me when I ordered them. I sent them a e-mail and asked them to credit my credit card for the $20 as it wasn't part of the deal. It brings the pricing all in to $28.85 a thousand on a 5,000 order which is nothing special.
Well that sucks. I can buy them down the road for $26 per 1000.
I could have gotten them from Jerry's wholesale for about $24 all in.
I'm surprised, Terry. They didn't do that to me......guess I was lucky.....
After two e-mails they answered and said they would credit my CC for the Hazmat fee. That brings the pricing to $24.85/1000 all in so I'm happy with that.
Good deal, Terry. I think on the 1st, I'm going to order another 5000.....
I need some too. Small and large. I use Wichesters so I can use them for magnum and standard loads.
I picked 5000 WLPs at a gun show on the 17th for $107. The cost last December was 93.00. As it looks like time to stock up I got an 8 lb can of Unique at Sportman's Warehouse yesterday marked at 107 but I had a $10 coupon which made the price pretty good. Last pound of Unique I bought at my LGS a few weeks ago was 16.99, up from 16.00 only a few weeks before that.
Just priced CCI #300's today and for 1000 would be $29.98 I couldn't believe they were $2.99 for pack of 100 ct

I will be out tomorrow looking as I really want WW LMPP and LRP
Welcome to the world of, "I can't afford it". :|
Yeah, but ya gotta do-do what ya gotta do-do-I couldn't afford my last .45, either...but I couldn't afford to be underarmed, either....I'll do without some things to be prepared....and STILL think I need to do more.......the warm and fuzzy "safe in America" feeling left long ago........
