I have close access to Sportsmans warehouse gander mt and Sheels as well as a couple small time shops. I like sheels the best then Sportsmans for it's selection. Gander doesn't have much to choose from. S W is a little more expensive, but I still like to use the stores to look at what I want, then I will price it off of Midwayusa.
I was really upset with Sportsman's "expert" who claims to shoot tens of thousands of round a year. He tried to get me to purchase a bullet casting set and he succeeded in selling me a RCBS neck turner for a RCBS case trimmer. Some expert! This is a piece of $h!! If I ever saw one.
It is nice to have several authoraties in the area to compare opinions though.
I would like to add this tidbit of infoe, I inquired about range finders and the salesman was talking to me as he was reading the specs out of the catolog. It is still a chain store and may not offer the best advice LOL!
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
-- Well, at least I try --
