North Florida Reloading Supplies?




Can anyone direct me to a local source of reloading supplies (.45 ACP)?

We're located in Green Cove Springs on the St Johns River about 30 miles south of Jacksonville, FL.

So far we've visited:
Green Acres (west side of JAX)
St. Nicholas on Blanding (is there a second / better store?)
Dick's Sporting Goods

Each has zero (!) or very little in the way of reloading equipment / supplies. I've been ordering from MidwayUSA, but the week's wait & freight charges are discouraging, not to mention HAZMAT charges (I've avoided those thus far).

Any help appreciated. We've not been in this area very long, and for other reasons hope to be moving on in the next several months.

TIA.

Cap'n as a fellow NoFL shooter I have two recommendations:

I'm a Administrator over at Florida Shooters Network - go there and ask your question. We have a lot of folks from Jaxville area.

Second: I am tired of paying the high prices from the Pensacola shops so my next load of powder and primers are coming from Powder Valley Inc.. They hav gotten good reviews and their prices are good. You just have to order enough to justify the $20 hazmat charge.

Thanks for Tips

LZhome, thanks for both tips. I'll check out the shooter's net.

Took a look at Powder Valley ... sure like the prices and the recommendation.

Ditto on Powder Valley. Also, check out Cabellas for bullets. Their shipping is based on cost of order, not weight, so one sometimes gets better deals from Cabellas on bullets than most other places...and, they're reliable.
