Saving money on primers and powder

I was just able to order 2,000 small pistol primers to the Bass Pro in Arundel Mills. I was able to avoid the hazmat fee this way. Plus, using Mr. rebates I get 8% back on the order. I do not know if I have specifically ordered primers using Mr. rebates, but I have bought ammo several times and always got my rebate. Just a heads up if you are trying to pinch pennies on reloading.

I considered going that way with them. Any idea if they actually shipped them? Ordering to home about 3 months ago they ended up shipping me all the primers I ordered (most were for a buddy when I was ordering powder also to split hazmat). But it took a month and they ended up shipping 100 here, 400 there, 300 in another box. Took them 5 boxes to ship me 2100 primers.

And I haven't been able to find small pistol primers anywhere. Prefer CCI. Not out or close to out, but I've got way more bullets and powder than I have primers to load.

I ordered last night so I can keep up updated. TBH I won’t be mad if they ship piecemeal as long as it doesn’t take too long

Ordered bullets, primers and powder from BP last month. Ship to store. Bullets took a few days, primers were about two weeks and powder was about three weeks.

Had a couple gift cards or I would have purchased elsewhere locally assuming I could find what I wanted.

When I ordered powder, it said in stock for ship to store and home. By that evening it was low quantities or something. Got an email that my shipment would be delayed.

All in all not too bad but for fast moving products like powder and possibly primers, it could be awhile. Seems like their inventory isn’t exactly real-time or they are planning on shipments to them and those are delayed sometimes.

Unhappy

I generally order primers, powder from them and have them shipped to the store. However, I ordered some A1680 almost two months ago and have yet to receive it. Bass Pro every week sends me an email saying the ship date is delayed. The latest email has it shipping July 14th.

If it makes you feel better I have some .223 62gr spire point I ordered early April that is projecting to be to me by mid July. I am sure they’ll email me pushing it back again in a couple of days.
