Federal 209 primers on line are $40.00 per thousand add $27.50 HASMAT plus shipping. You are in $80 dollars a brick. In the stores they are up to $75 plus sales taxes.

I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would pay hazmat for a single brick of primers. If a store has a price tag that high on 209s. I make a point to tell them how I despise them for gouging and NEVER go back.

Virtually the exact wad used in the Winchester AA shells. $50/a bag for shot? I don't pay more than $40. Check Rotometals. Comparing such a handload to bargain basement loads is very much apples annd oranges. My loads shoot every bit as good as the high end AA loads for FAR cheaper. They will outshoot the typical "Dove and quail load" by a long shot. If you are in the market, I have about 600 Federal Gold Medal hulls I am willing to part with. If you want to load heavier stuff, I have boo coo Federal #4 high brass hulls
Checked rotometals.. 55 bucks for 25 lbs and 100 for 50.. I found a site a while ago that was 36 bucks for 25lbs.. It was a west coast company and they had a very basic website.. Was never able to find it again

Yeah it is reclaim, but then it's melted down and made into new shot and tumbled in graphite..

So technically it is new shot..
