I'm just getting into reloading. I live in Champaign and would like to buy locally to save hazmat costs (at least I assume there is no charge if bought in a store). Do any stores in the area sell reloading components? The cost of gas would probably be more than the hazmat fee if I have to go very far.
thanks

Go to Dave`s gunshop on 150. It`s east of urbana. He has all kinds of powder and a stack of shot! price is comparable

Yeah,Dave's Firearms & cycle repair # is 217-469-8000.
He's located only 2.5 miles east of rt.130 (highcross rd.) on the north side of rt.150 in Mayview.
He's got what you're looking for.

Primers are becoming hard to find. Ive done group mail orders with friends to help with hazmat and shipping charges.

Big R in Tilton (south of Danville) had Hodgdon powder and Winchester primers last time I was there. They also sell handguns, which was a nice surprise!
