    Maybe time to order some and have them delivered.
    Usually if you order a couple lbs of powder and say 5K primers you save enough to cover shipping and the hazmat charge.
    Unless you are ordering large qtys sometimes a better price on the powder and primers is offset by a higher shipping and hazmat charge so if you decide to order
    base your decision on the cost to your door.
    Primers are generally around $30/k, powder $20-$25lb shipping varies, hazmat $20-$30.
    Cabela's sometimes has S+B primers of a little over $22/k, but they are higher on powder, $5 shipping for Cabelas club members Hazmat was $20 so sometimes they are a good deal, sometimes others are better.
    Lots of good places,
    Grafs, MidSouth, Powder Valley, 3rd Gen shooting supply, Brownells, Recobs,
    Brownells sends me free shipping emails on $100 orders but free shipping does not count the hazmat,
    worth spending some time shopping.
    Midway can be ok if they have other stuff you want otherwise they tend to be higher than other places.

    If you are making payments on a gun then you might have a problem!

    I have never owned more than 100 guns at the same time. I keep the bullet and primer supply under 25k each. I'm OK.

    I beg borrow and barter when I need to. Never want something for free. I bet there are those that have what you need. I also bet there are those that wish they had something you had? I purchased 7K 150 grain .308 bullets. I don't need that many, but I had the cash and needed some. I got my money back by selling some and trading. Your hooked like the rest of us. Time to think outside the box.

    Over the years, I've put a few guns on layaway.
    No extra interest or other fees.

    Have an SP101 in .327 Fed Mag on layaway now.
    Last payment will be July 1st. :D
