When purchasing many items for reloading, primarily reloading accessories, where do you purchase your items from?
I am looking about purchasing around $200 worth of items to help supplement my reloading bench and was curious if anyone had a recommended seller to get the items from. I am currently putting together a shopping list through Midwayusa but was hoping i could find someone cheaper out there.

Often price is not the only thing that get my business, it is the way they handle mistakes or warranty issues that is more important to me.
You guys in the USA are blessed with larger choices of goods and resellers, whereas we Ozzians unfortunately have to deal with incredibly expensive pricing and mediocre selection.

Good luck tlo7mm in finding good suppliers, I am sure you wont have to go far to get a good one.

Here's a few I buy from:
Wideners,Graf and Sons , Sinclair, Brownell's, and you might check with Natchez because they have free shipping, they have a nominal handling fee but if you're getting lots of stuff then free shipping is nice. I use mostly Lee Precision reloading stuff but don't always buy from them, you can shop around and sometimes get better prices and availability. Had to edit this to also include Midway USA because I buy a lot stuff from them, their selection is pretty good over a wide range of stuff (but always check around for prices)

If its just accessories, I buy mine from Cabela's. They usually have what I need and have always been fine to deal, at least in my experience. If its bullets, powder, and primers, its from where ever I can find them. Very Happy

go see your local guy in the small shop just down the road....see what he has and ask what sort of price he can do. you might just be surprised and make a lasting friendship...use it or loose it.

Add www.powdervalleyinc.com/ to your list, though they are as short of things as anyone else right now. For cast bullets, www.reloadsnmore.com/ and LeadHeads are very good.

That may work where you are and I applaud your effort to buy locally but where I am, "the small shop" in general has a poor selection of overpriced stuff. When I'm paying $3.50 a gallon for gas, I'm better off buying online and paying shipping than wasteing my time driving on a probably unprofitable venture in buying.

I've bought from all those mentioned. Sometimes you do better with one and sometimes with another. I think MidwayUSA's shipping fees have gotten a bit high so my recent order was with Sinclair. I also have a Cabela's pretty close to me now so they get more of my business.

Some places I don't think were mentioned above (sorry if I missed them):

1. Nosler's Shooter's Pro Shop
2. Huntingtons Die Specialties
3. Powder Valley
4. Rocky Mountain Reloading

You have to be careful with the "free shipping" thing. I once compared total prices for a purchase from two companies. One had "free" shipping and the other didn't. It turned out that the total prices for the one with the free shipping was more than the other one; kind of a Jedi price trick.

It depends on what I need. When I can, I support some great local gun shops that usually give me a discount. When the items I need are not available, then I go to the online sites already mentioned. So it depends. All the best...

Locally when ever possible. Bullets from Midway USA and Missouri Bullet (highly recommended for lead bullets).

I try to buy supplies locally to support local shops. I don't hoard, but I have picked up a few boxes of things from time to time over the summer when I've found things in stock. Glad I did, the hunting season "rush" has things sold out again and people scrambling for ammo. Luckily I've been able to make ammo for all our hunts so far.

Specialty tools and equipment I do order from usually Midwayusa or sinclairs.
