Best mail order gun shop?

What's the best mail order gun shop in Australia? Living in the country I mail order most of my reloading gear.

I ordered some .300 RUM brass from Hornsley Park Gun Shop in NSW at 3pm and they arrived in my mail box at 8.30 am the next morning in Country Victoria. Now thats great service!!

Dia-a-Rama is also very prompt and The Shooters Warehouse is good if they have what you want in stock.

However I also ordered some NF software from a gun shop only 80km away, three days latter I rang them and they said that they had only just posted it. Now thats poor service.

Hi TopShot,

I've used the following E-bay store for some very small reloading supplies and the shipping/service was very quick for my location:

17 Ackley Hunting & shooting store

One negative, I e-mailed him for some prices on more expensive kit and he never returned my message, don't know what happened there??? So, I purchased else-where.


Cheers.

I ordered from Cleaver firearms in QLD and there service was excellent. They advertise in the SSAA publications every month and there are some real bargains to be had
I am pretty convinced that generally it is the person you get on the phone that makes the difference.

Yep, I have to agree on that one too!

I've previously had a few chats on the phone to the owner about 357SIG reloading and he was very helpful on the phone and other orders have been seemless. Quite good.

Cheers.
