Doesn't Cabelas have an "order-to-store" no shipping charge option?
We all forgot this; http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,5589.0.html
I just got back from Bass Pro, which is about 30 minutes closer to me than Cabela's. After much arguing with them, they finally met Cabela's price. They were trying to say that the kits weren't identical but they were after they looked at the right page. In the end, I got the kit for $300 plus a $50 mail in rebate. I also picked up some carbide (Hornady) dies for .45 Colt.
For you book readers out there, it has a nice, THICK book with the kit.
I held off on the tumbler. I want to get my feet wet before I start investing more money. The guy at Bass Pro has been reloading for 30 years and recommended a digital scale because the kit comes with a beam scale that he says is really slow. The one he recommended was $250 so I decided against that too.
Now I need to get online and order powder and bullets as well as some casings. Who's the cheapest? What bullets? What powder? What casings? Who do most of you use for your supplies? Online? Local gun shop?
Thanks in advance.
