    Anybody ever purchased from F&M Reloading? How was your experience? I'm looking really hard at the Lyman T-Mag II and they have, by far, the best price on them.

    Any info would be helpful!

    I have made three or four orders with them in the past. At the time they had the best price on Lee molds and other lee equipment. I have always gotten my order, but it was always a crap shoot on how long it took. Their site would not say if an item is in stock or not at the time you order.

    My experience with several orders has been the same as noted. Good prices, fair shipping costs, no problems with the orders. Whether or not it's in stock is another story. May be best to call them to determine availability and maybe order over the phone if they have what you're looking for.

    A very good company, just down the road from Lee Manufacturing. Recently changed their name from Factory Sales to FS Reloading, but the same place. They mentioned someplace that the name change was to avoid confusiion of folks thinking they were a Company Outlet Store rather than a separate private business.

    I do business almost exclusively with FS Reloading. Not only the best prices but I've not had an order take more than 4 business days. If I've ordered something that they don't have they call and tell me so, refund my money and send on the rest of my order.

    F&M reloading is not the same place as fsreloading.com(Factory Sales), not sure how folks get so easily confused.

    Wait till you get old and senile....... then you'll understand the easy confusion - LOL - of course you are correct and I need to clean my glasses.

    Still... FS is a great resource.

    Oh look..... a bunny rabbit!!!!

    I have been ordering from F&M for about 20 years now. They don't keep stock on much of the stuff so it usually takes about two weeks to get your order, but if you need something fast you can always call them to make sure it's in stock before ordering.

    Thanks for the info everybody! I feel confident ordering from them now! I was just afraid of the deal because it seemed "too good." :D

    :p

    I am getting there. Slower, and my eyes aren't near as sharp as they once were.

    I also agree that Factory Sales has been great, and has never been beat when I've been shopping for reloading tools.

    Their prices are so reasonable because they don't spend a lot of money on advertising and they don't send out fancy color catalogs.

    They also don't keep tons of inventory. If they have it in stock they are fast to ship. If it has to get shipped from Lee it can take a while. However everything I ever ordered from them wound up getting to me correctly and at a great price.

    Lee is running a month or more behind on most of their stuff. I wanted the case trim deal for a 300 blackout, midway said it will be a while until they see them.

    Been buying from F&M since 1994 when I saw their ad in Shotgun News. Always got what I ordered. Best prices by far and fair shipping. But with Lee, it's gonna be slow this year. 2013 will probably see an end to the panic buying.

    Just make sure you don't need it yesterday. My Lee press took nearly 8 weeks. You can get it cheap or you can get it fast, but not both it seems.

    As the economy continues it's downward spiral of 'change we can believe in', more and more shooters are discovering reloading as a way to shoot more for the same $$$ spent. Lee makes very durable and reliable products to a satisfying price point for a lot of us recreational shooters. I am an unabashed fan of their gear.
