    Hi all,

    I'm tired of paying through the nose for powder and primers. Anybody in the area want to split the cost of hazmat? Grafs allows up to 50lbs per hazmat charge, I figure if we can get a few 8lbs powder, and some 5000 primer cases, we can probably drive the cost down to less the 4.50 for hazmat.

    Don't look like they have much in stock.

    Yeah, It goes up and down like everybody else, but if we can have a group ready for the next wave...

    Anymore,I don't care about paying the Hazmat fee. I refuse to purchase supplies locally from the dealers that are price gouging everyone.
    Even after paying the $27.50 for Hazmat,I still come out cheaper than buying stuff locally.

    The only powders that I need to buy,can't be found right now,and I still have plenty to last a year or two. Everything else,I have 8-10 pounds of already.
    When I buy powder,I usually buy 30 pounds or more,so adding in the extra charge really doesn't affect my overall cost per round.

    Hey Txhillbilly,

    I get where you're coming from, and maybe this isn't for you. I tend to buy 1/8lbs container and it usually lasts me a year or two. At that rate, the difference between local and online is usually taxes, so if I can find a few people that want to cut the cost it would help several people.

    But even for you if the maximum weight is 50# and you're buy 30# there is still savings for you.

    I like to think, it's not how much money you make but how much you keep that matters :D

    I look at it this way. The local shop where I purchased powder and primers for 25+ years has raised the price of their supplies so much that even if I just bought one 8lb jug of powder online,it would still be cheaper than buying from the local shop. I let them know that they've lost my business forever,when they jacked up their prices.

    I don't care if I completely run out of certain powders,I will never buy anything from them again. It's all about principle's!

    Even the big retailers - Bass Pro and Cabelas have jacked up the prices of powder and primers. I was up near Bass Pro yesterday,and stopped in there.They want $29.99 for any of the 1lb powders,and $50 for 1k primers. You'd have to be either crazy or stupid to pay those prices for reloading components.
