    Where I live it is almost impossible to get powder or primers without mail-order and associated hazmat fee. I really don't like the idea of driving 100 miles to the metroplex to get powder. I checked with Academy on line just to see if they had Hodgdon Copper Fouling Eraser Pistol Powder on line that they could deliver to my local store. $23.99 a pound and free home delivery for a $25 order. So I generated another expense to get over $25. They have a good assortment of primers but not powder.

    So, I put in the order totoal $29.98, plus tax of course, shipping is $17.66 and they discounted $17.66. So, for those of you that need primers (mainly) and some powders and live too far from a store that sells such, this is a good method of getting such without hazmat and really without any shipping charges on sales over $25.

    FYI and perhaps save a few dollars.

    It looks like they honored the free shipping and took $17.66 off the shipping fee.

    For what Academy charges for primers I'd buy them online 10K at a time.

    Awesome! I might have to get some powder. Though their selection is limited.

    Interesting. They appear to have come to their senses. It now says home delivery not available.

    I just checked and it was still available for home delivery for CFE Pistol but for H110 it was available at the store. This may depend on your store and it may actually be available at your store. I know my Academy carries some powder.
