    I got a sale flyer from Cabala's in the mail yesterday.

    It has coupons for 20% off all powder, primers, bullets, and cases in stock at the store.
    Good Oct 13 thru 23.

    The sale started on the 29th at my local Cabelas in WI. I took advantage of this sale and loaded up on cci primers a couple days ago for $27.99 per 1000.

    I got a 10% off coupon last week for Cabela VISA holders, I couldn't find anything I needed.

    I got that coupon in today's mail, but the nearest Cabela's is in Phoenix. Not worth it.

    I live about 20 miles from local Cabelas find that I can beat there prices most of the time via mail orders, but they are good for window shopping.;)

    The only good time to shop in Cabela's is when a sale is on.

    Last week while they had most of their reloading equipment on sale I loaded up on dies, a scale and a few other do-dads I needed. I ended up saving a little over $100.

    I loaded up on a Powder Valley order & saved a heck of a lot more, even with the hazmat fee.

    Small pistol primers - $20.
    Large Pistol primers - $15.
    8# of Tite Group - $105.70 - Cabela's doesn't even carry this size.

    And on top of all that Cabela's is 75 miles away.

    This is the month to get em while you can. The vendors are trying to compete with the fuel man/fall stock up of dry goods and early Christmas shoppers. In this economy we can only spend so much and it sure doesn't go as far lately. For the last couple years the $$ are slow to come in for most of us in the construction industry around here. One guy (20 something with his pregnant wife in tow) was at the LGS buying primers last week and remarked to me that he could only afford 200 this time. Any more and he would not have enough fuel to get them home to be able to use what he had just purchased. Paycheck to paycheck is a hard way to get by these days and a lot of us are now in that boat IMHO. I try to get things from Graf and Powder Valley as the Has Mat item prices are better over local when you can mail order them in for me at least. I do try to buy local but when the local prices are 2X the mail order cost I can't afford that right now.

    Bruno Shooter Supply near Central and Deer Valley Road sells powder and primers for just a buck or two higher than Powder Valley prices.

    Hmm. Gonna need to find that coupon. I've got some powders I want to pick up. Still doing load development on my 223 so 8# jugs isn't necessary yet. A couple 1# cannisters of some powder I don't have would be good. I live about 15 minutes from a Cabela's and stocked up on the CCI SRP when they had them for $20/k. I've got enough to last me a good long while.

    I was at Cabela's last week and the in-store flyer had a 20% off coupon for all primers, powder and bullets. I didn't need any powder but I bib buy some bullets even though I didn't need them. any time you can buy Sierra and Hornady bullets at 20% off is a good day!
