Could you check powder prices while you’re there? Damned if Bass Pro isn’t selling 4227 and a couple others for $40 a pound! I paid $28 + tax for a pound of Unique at SCB this past Friday.

Generally SCB is the only powder vendor at the Melbourne show. I don't think I have seen any other reloading supply vendors there in at least 5 or 6 years. The only exception would be a few private sale people like Wulfmann Bob who sets up to the West side of SCB.

Best way to go for powders and primers is a large group buy online and on sale, then.
I’ve got a buddy on the gulf coast who invited me to pitch in next time they put a powder/primer purchase together.

Thanks for the PM, wulfman, I can’t send a reply for some reason. I’ll try to get by to see you before I head out of town this weekend. I appreciate the offer.

New to the Area, Greetings, what is this show like...

Have not been to any Floridian gun shows... Would not mind going to a few.. Like older guns.. But if it goes bang its usually in the running

Show report:
Good attendance this morning, but by 11 am the show had really thinned out.
Good buys on ammo to be had; like 22 LR ammo less than $25 per 500 and 9mm for 18 cents per round.
No so good for reloading supplies, but there were $25 per 1000 primers here and there.
Very little in the way of old firearms, but there were sub $500 AR15's.

Next show is March 24 & 25, a whole seven weeks off.
