I've saved literally thousands of dollars over the last 30 years by buying bulk through my club.

Lotsa folks do.

But there are bigger savings when a club buys for 50-75 people at a time.

You get some pretty good prices on primers, for instance, when you buy 250,000 in one order, or when you buy 100 pounds or more of powder at a time.

Anyway, just something to consider if you shoot a lot and are getting fed up with the current retail prices.

It depends on shipping and how much. Some years back when we lived in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and were shooting a lot of Trap, my wife and I drove up to Scott Shot in St. George, Utah. We purchased a ton of shot, (80, 25 pound bags of #8's), for just $12.35 a bag. At the time we bought it, the cheapest the gun club we belonged to could get it for was almost $16.00 a bag drop shipped to the club.

We got that price because we agreed to load it and take it off the parking lot ourselves. He placed a pallet containing the 80 bags right behind the tailgate of my truck, and we loaded it up for the drive home. I have a Ford F-150 and it made it with no problem. I had my air shocks pumped up to 110 pounds, along with good 31 X 10.5 tires. We distributed the weight over the entire 8 foot bed of the truck. We still have some of it left, and today it's going as high as $50.00 a bag. It was tough to put out that kind of money for shot, but we both knew it would get shot up in time. It's nice to know every time I pull the trigger on a clay the shot going out the end of my barrel is costing me just 25% of what the guy next to me is paying!
