I have already checked Midway. They have most of this stuff or can backorder it, but their shipping cuts into my aim to save money by reloading. Somebody mentioned bulletworks on another thread, but I can't find a link to that.
Also, is the $22.50 HazMat fee per order or per HazMat item? If I buy all of this stuff will I have to pay a single $22.50 HazMat fee or will I have to pay it for every single powder item and every single primer item? Thanks.

40 & 45 try hard lead from bulletworks.com.
easy to SD velocities and no barrel leading
order forms have hazmat details.
primers are mostly backordered-so if you find them buy them: SPP for 40S&W and LPP for 45acp

I just got 2000 55gr JSP bulk bullets from Midsouth Shooters supply. No 55 FMJs are to be found right now.
Your list has exactly what everyone else wants and can't get. Good luck.

Some places will ship both primers and powder under one hazmat fee, however some won't, and you end up paying one for each. That means that you will pay one for powder and one for primers in what ever size they will ship them in. The biggest issue you have right now is finding someone who has primers and the bullets you want in stock.
The other thing about Midway is if you do back order, they will ship what ever is in stock first, then as your back ordered stuff comes in they will ship it. If it all comes in at one time or within a week or so great but if much further apart they will ship it as it comes and you pay shipping on each shipment unless you specifically request they hold it until it is all available, get a total including shipping price and get an email conformation, just in case they ship it anyway you can request your extra shipping cost back.

Thanks for the info. It seems like a lot of companies have items that are slightly less expensive than Midway, but they don't have all the components. If I were to go with the cheaper sellers, it would probably cost more than a single order from Midway since I would have to deal with multiple shipping and HazMat fees. I've dealt with Midway before and they are excellent. In the rare case that they make a mistake, they will quickly and cheerfully resolve the issue in the customer's favor.

I have about given up on ordering from midway. It seems if I order three items at least one item is out of stock. And this has been going on way before all the shortages we are seeing now. I'm talking about a couple of years back.
I have had really good luck with Natchez, Midsouth and Graf & Sons. Also a lot of times I can find stuff at my local GS and find it for even less tham mail order.
Right now is not a good time for a buyer. Thankfuly I started stocking up 15 years ago. I don't have a lot of sympathy for you guys that have been shooting and loading for several years and now are short. You only have yourself to blame.
Never count on things being the same forever. They aren't.
