    Hi guys,

    Some of the guys at the local shooting club (IDPA) are pooling resources to try and pickup the best discount on bullets, powder and primers.

    So far, they are looking at about 30k combined in bullets, 50k in primers and 12 jugs of powder. I can tack a meager amount for my use on their order. What I add on won't make or break the deal, but hey if I can save a buck ;)

    I have called a few places, but am having trouble finding any source that actually has stock on hand, or will give more than published catalog prices for a discount. Paying for all of it up front and waiting on it to arrive is OK, but we're hoping to get a good price for handling things this way.

    Shipping and Hazmat is proving to be a killer from a couple of sources. Looks like some of the dealers either make money on the sell price or jack up the shipping/handling charges, some do both.

    Where do you guys go for bulk pricing without getting hosed ?

    It has been decided the primers will all be Winchester, and all the bullets will be jacketed (or plated if the price is REALLY good). All in 9mm 40/10mm and 45 ACP. Powder is AA, Hodgdon and Alliant.

    I get my powder and primers at the gun shows that pass through here on a regular basis. Bullets and accesaries from Midway USA.

    It is hard to beat Powder valley for really big orders(Ie over 100K)

    Dont go straight to Montana gold for their bullets. Try one of their suppliers because they are always cheaper and will drop ship for free to you. Try www.actionshootingsupply.com He sells their stuff at as good of prices as I have seen. Powder valley also sells MG's for a good price. Also try angus for Zero bullets at www.ghostholster.com
