Hey guys. Moved to Vermont when I finished up with the Marines and need a good source for reloading supplies. I prefer to buy local, and am in SW Vermont (Arlington). I'm willing to drive anywhere from Saratoga, NY to Keene, NH. Basically about an hour & a half in either direction. Anyone know a good shop?

Semper Fidelis, brother.

Heck, I cannot even get reloading supplies anywhere in Denver CO!

try this: http://www.recobstargetshop.com

Sure, I could drive 20 miles across town, and buy the odd Wad or two, or possibly a bag of shot, but that's all they got in the entire Metro area.

You just got out of the Marines, and you just moved to "socialist Vermont"? Are you NUTS!

Hell, you could have gone to the Adirondacks or to "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire, both are better choices - then you will find more hunters and common sense folks, and reloading supplies, too!

Yeah, but I got a job at Orvis and couldn't turn that down. Plus, I'll be one of the few left standing in the Green Mountains when it all tumbles down. My wife is a NH girl & we have a shot of about 40 acres over there that we share with the family.

falcon5,
Thank you for your service, and good luck in Vermont.
Regarding reloading supplies, I would suggest contacting Beikirch's in Rochester, NY. http://www.beikirchs.com/
They are a large wholesaler of our powder, and I know they service the whole Northeast. They can direct you to someone locally who sells reloading products at retail. As suggested previously, gun clubs who buy in bulk when they take loads of targets are good sources.
Good luck, and contact Ben at 800/276-9337 if you need help or info on our American made shotshell powders.
Shoot well,
Paul

you got a job at Orvis, why not try to get them into reloading. Think about it. ----Kristensdaddy
The finest instruction book I have ever found on the subject of Handling and Shooting the Shotgun, was the Orvis: "Wing Shooting Handbook" by BRUCE BOWLEN. It sold for $10.95.

I think it is now out of print. The book is barely 1/4" thick, in paperback, and cuts through all the fluffy text and clearly explains stance and posture as the foundation of good shooting. Why not suggest that Orvis republish that book?

I don't know about any other issues, but Orvis could probably do a good job with reloading supplies.
