I usually buy most of if not all of my reloading equipment from benton shooters but not this time.

As y'all know I got a good .270 off buzzr46 and plan to handload it. I can get Lee RGB dies from cabelas for $17 (including shipping) or RCBS FL dies from benton shooters for $34 (not including tax)...I dont think so. Its pretty sad that I can order a box of bullets and dies and even after shipping it would still be cheaper.

I aint tryin to bash benton shooters because I still go there to get as much of my gear as possible but $34 for RCBS dies?? [censored] man, I used to be able to get the same dies for $24 there.

Yeah, here a while back I posted about the price increase on the dies there. Even the single die neck sizers are the same price for just a single die. Normally those are only a little over $20. I order all that stuff online and pay shipping and still get it cheaper like you said.

I think the only thing that makes sense to buy locally when it comes to reloading is powder and primers due to hazmat fees when shipping. That is if you are only going to buy a couple pounds here and there.
