Reading some threads about rising component costs for reloaders.  Was in my Gander Mountain last week, ALL components were up 30% or more.!!!!  Just passing on some info, look at  www.grafs.com.  You buy 4, 8lb kegs, they eat the hasmat and will ship for $5.95.  If it weighs 5lb or 500lb they ship for 5.95.., thats for any purchase.  Always have good sales also.

I used to by SMK that I use for 26.99.  Now they want 39.99 per 100.!! In less than a month.

I understand that on Dec 1 most major ammo suppliers are raising prices again ( raw materials - metals-costs are "officially" to blame ) .. Not a bad idea to stock away some stuff now

Finding decent 5.56mm ammo is becoming a darn scavanger hunt too.

Luckily, I've laid up some extra....

Plummetting dollar, substantial rise in demand for lead are probably the primary reasons for that, since copper and zinc are essentially flat compared to last year (which means price of brass should be more or less the same, but bullets would probably go way up).

Lead is up more than 60% over the last year.

You might want to check out Powder Valley.  They're in Winfield KS.  They have some the best prices on powder, bullets, primers. etc.
