H110 @ Powder Valley

PV has H110 in 1 lb and 8 lb jugs. They are also showing 1 lb bottles of HP38 and Longshot is still in stock in 1 lb bottles.

I just placed an order for the 8 lb jug of H110. I haven't seen 8 lb jugs of it or 296 in a looonnngg time and I use it a lot in 357 and 44 Mag.

Great prices until you look at the hazmat fees. Local hardware store sells H110 for $24.99 a lb. That HM Fee is a unreal. You would have to order 10lbs min for it to even be worth it, but t lease they have that much to sell. Local guy is limiting to 2lbs or 1 8lb per person.

You are lucky to have a "hardware store" that sells any reloading supplies much less at a reasonable price. Where I live there are almost no stores that sell reloading supplies. Local gun club has some Varget @$34/lb and primers for $40/K....I don't buy from there. I order everything and just buy in large enough volumes to take some of the sting out of the hazmat. Also, we have a 7% sales tax in FL, so not paying that usually offsets the Hazmat/shipping fees on a $400-500 order with Powder Valley, Grafs, etc.

I'm in the exact same boat as you, unfortunately. And like you, I also order in large enough quantity to dilute the hazmat fee over several items. Along with the 8 lb jug of H110, I also ordered around 6k of primers too. The hazmat fee covers both the powder and the primer purchase.

Also, I saw earlier today that Midway had some True Blue for sale. I don't say in stock as they don't actually stock any powder at Midway, but rather drop ship it from a distributor or something. I needed magnum powder a lot more than another mid range powder like the True Blue, so PV got my money today.

Thanks for the heads up. I snagged 8 pounds of H-110. Been looking for it for many months. Choked a bit on the hazmat fee, but at least I've now got something to load TCM with.

We are very lucky. The guy who runs it keeps the area off limits to General public but he is a full Dillon retailer and sales primers at $37 per 1000. People who know ask for him but he doesn't allow things to be hoarded up.

At $37 per k for primers, he wouldn't get $1 of my money!!

At $37 per 1K primers, it wouldn't take a huge online order to offset hazmat and shipping and come out ahead of the hardware store ...

Well you are no where near him so he wouldn't anyway. So you think $37 per k average, Winchester primers in hand is outrageous??? What are you paying for primers??? $2.99 per 100 is bottom of the barrel here and I think those are Wolffe primers. Most expensive are cci military at around $39 plus tax for a 1000. 1000 cci small rifle is $34 plus tax.

Let me know where I can buy primers and make up the hazmat fee and shipping with out buying 10,000 at a time. Some of us can't afford $1000 powder and primer orders. Plus I can drive across town and pick up a box if I need them.

Nope
All of my primers have come from midway.
I have only Remington, and CCI
I average 25.00 to my house
If you wait, and watch, sales happen.
I don't mind if you support your local business, its a good thing, but those are far from normal prices.
I just had my friend order some from powder Valley, and will have 30.00 per 1000
delivered.

How ... One box of a 1000 gets a $28.50 hazmat on top of the $26.50 for primers. Plus it states shipping is added to that.

Like I said you have to buy a lot at wholesale to make up that difference.

Had put 16# of 110, plus 10k cci spp in my cart, but just didn't go through with it. Price not bad, including hazmat and shipping.

Granted I could buy 5000 at midway for about $33 a 1000 plus shipping. I would have to buy 10,000 to really come out good. I just don't buybin that quantity.

I don't know why they make 1lb'ers of H110/296.

When you use H110/296, you use a lot of H110/296.

I wait for a SALE. I always press the clearance button, if there are primers, I buy them.
When I bought mine they were 109.00 for a box of 5000. Plus shipping. Those were Remington's, and the CCI's were 22.. something plus shipping and hazmat. I have bought all my primers in the last 6 months.
I bought 20,000 plus powder.
Couple of times a year they have a sale with no hazmat charges, you should check it out.
Be put on their mailing list.

I bought 30k CCI SPP shipped to me for about $24 a k. Wait for the sale... buy a whole boat load.

Everyone as seems to forget that you pay tax at the store, and by me... that's almost 10%.

And don't forget the gas it cost you to drive to your LGS too. Even though gas is presently affordable, don't expect it to last like this forever. For me, the nearest gun shop that handles any reloading supplies is like a 70 mile round trip.

As mentioned, strike when there is a sale. A little while back Midway had coupon codes for a certain amount of money off depending on how much you spent. I ended up paying around $30 per K of CCI after shipping and hazmat with a $20 discount applied. Granted, I bought 8K primers, but that was about $240 total.

I'm not wealthy but if I can afford a couple hundred bucks that I know, longer term, is going to save me money. If that's too much, then put together a savings fund for the hobby. Paying 7 dollars more per 1K = $56 more for 8K. If saving 25% on primers, or whatever else, means I had to maintain a reloading savings fund, I'd do it. Personally, it would be worth it to me, especially if I wasn't able to come up with a couple hundred bucks right away when a fair deal presented itself. Afterall, for me, reloading was actually about saving money, not being able to shoot more for the same cost (as factory ammo). I went into it pretty much only wanting to be able to shoot another box of 45 at the range. I can do that and I have saved money overall, in the process. But only by keeping stock so I have plenty for elections and times of panic without running dry or getting price gouged. AND, by buying in bulk.

I don't reload for rifle but I get the emails from Xtreme. Checking their .224 FMJ, the price comes to about $87 for 1000. But there is shipping cost. They have a sale on something all the time which may offset some shipping, and there would be no tax. Maybe a couple bucks saved over your local price. Since I don't load rifle, I don't know what else is out there.
