    Default Retail source for powder/primers in Philly?

    Are there any?

    Seems like an awful lot of money for shipping+hazmat to order it online if I'm buying anything under 8 pounds of powder or lots of (4-8k) primers.

    This is for 9mm, .45ACP and .223 loads.

    Not in Philly but Millers Sporting Goods in Linwood are good people and it's not too far of a drive down 95.

    No car unfortunately. I rely on public transportation to get most places.

    I agree with King's Shooter Supply in KOP. Make it to the mall by bus and take a walk.

    Delia's in NE Philly generally has primers and powder in stock.
    Primers are a bit expensive though, at $37.95.

    I'm looking to trade pistol primers for CCI small rifle primers for what it's worth.

    Good luck.

    Oh come on -- you have to have at least a couple of friends who drive and wouldn't mind browsing at a gun shop.

    What, no friends -- loner with guns and ammo -- uh oh! just kidding.
