Where do you buy your reloading supplies?

Recommended Posts

I was buying at Legends in Athens, but they went TU this year. The only other place I know about is Sportsman's Warehouse in Chattanooga.

Do you need to be a resident to buy powder in Tennessee? Making a trip to Chattanooga next week. Might look into a powder purchase when I am there.

There's no requirements whatsoever to buy components. You can be a felon on the run from the law and buy all the powder, primers, and bullets you want.

I also get my stuff from the Reloader's Bench in Mt Juliet. Bass Pro in Opry Mills carries powder and primers, but their bullet selection sucks. If you are ever near a Cabela's they're usually pretty good.

The Reloaders Bench in Mt Juliet is close to Nashville.

Just ask that they put their cigarettes out while ringing up your powder! :up:

The smoke is so dense sometimes that I can't stand to go inside. :)

Don't you just love it when people send you half way across the state for a good deal? Try Benton Shooters Supply.They usually have a good selection of powder and primers.They have premium bullets as well but their selection of bulk bullets (boxes of 500) is lacking sometimes. Sportsmans is good too.

I usually buy powder and primers locally so I don't have to pay hazmet fees.

For bullets, I've purchased directly from Zero Bullets or Berrys MFG. depending on my needs. Zero has no shippiong if purchasing 1000 rounds. Berry has a $50 minimum for free shipping.

All the brass that I have, I picked up at the range.

I have purchased components and other supplies from Midway or Cabelas. With Cabelas, I wait for free shipping.

Reloaders Bench or.....in the middle of no where KY, Gamaliel, KY is one of the best outfitted shops for reloading and shooting I have been to. If your in middle TN and out and about, run on up through Lafayette, TN or Red Boiling Springs and your just about there.

Mid South Shooters Supply in Clarksville is the best around in my opinion. They dont have a store front but you get the catalog, call in your order and go pick it up, they will have it waiting. They have one of the best selections in the state and do huge mail order business.

I know what you mean. They used to smoke heavily in there, both employees and customers but since the laws have changed, it is much better. :ugh: They are good peolpe and have a lot of reloading supplies at competetive prices especially when you figure in any on line hazmat fees.

Wideners in Johnson City

I am about 20 minutes from there. I still buy most components online at Midway etc as they don't have to charge TNs BS 9.5% sales tax. I still buy primers and powder there as the haz-mat charge is high if you don't by tons at a time.

Sportsmans Whse in Chattanooga.

I have bought at Benton Shooters also, but SW usually has a little better prices.

As for brass, www.midwayusa.com is my usual place. Hard to buy good brass for a reasonable price unless you order it.

Although I'm in Clarksville (across town from Midsouth Shooters), because of my work schedule, I order from MidwayUSA. I have my order in about 3 days. I have found better pricing on most items I need/use. Shipping for the most part is cheaper than sales tax, gas, and the time to go pick up my order. I guess it just depends on your mood as to who you order from!

I have purchased from Widners, Champions Choice in Lavergne, TN and the Reloaders Bench, when I had no other choice. However, I have purchased a great deal of powder and bullets from Powder Valley in Kansas. Yes, there is a haz mat fee for powder and bullets however, if you a a few other combine your orders, its cheaper than TN sales tax. There bullet prices are very competitive.

Where does everyone get their reloading supplies? i.e. bullets, powder, primers, cases? I have not been able to find a good local supplier.

The reloaders bench out in mt. juliet is your best bet.

I order my bulk bullets and get powder and primer plus an occasional box of hunting bullets at the bench. I get most of my cases as pickup at the range. Except .44 magnum, .45lc, 7mm rem mag, and .444. Can't find those. I just ordered some .44...midway has a sale on remington 100 packs.

Gun show might be another option on powder/primers. The last show they had some wolf primers at a decent price. Powder was $20 a pound and up though.

Mid-South Shooters Supply is a mail order company in Clarksville. They have great prices and you can call in your order and pick it up at the door to avoid haz mat charges.

Reloaders Bench for local. I buy local for powder and primers to avoid hazmet fees. If I can't make it to Reloaders Bench, I go to Lock Stock and Barrel or Steve's Gun and Archery.

Otherwise I order my bullets straight from the manufacturer. Zero and Berry's
