I was not aware and i really appreciate the info Ive only been reloading 3 years and find our state to be a tough place to find decent supplies. I work in Boston so when i have a chance I go up to Hooksett to Shooters outpost its where I bought all my Dillon equipment and try to stock up on primers when there I  especially like the no sales tax. Right now I feel like its time to stock up on powder from American Reloading and projectiles they are hard to beat. Thanks again Ill take all the advice i can get I wish we lived closer Id come by and roll a few.

Well, I'm usually here every day. I have limited live-fire capabilities onsite, too (ie, an earthen mound at the edge of an open area).
If you are at Black Fox, you've passed me. This shop doesn't carry any reloading gear, of course.
Warren, at M&B Sports, doesn't stock reloading gear, per se, but he does get used presses, die sets and assorted bullets and powders from time to time. Normally from someone's collection, not necessarily new factory product. I've done well getting brass, bullets and powders from him, but I haven't seen much new come through. If you seek .277" or .284" diameter bullets (older stock), he's got some.

Midstate offerings on armslist... (scroll down until you see their brass listing):

Thats awesome thank you once again ill have to shop it out tomorrow I just got home from Boston, two 17 hour days in a row and 2.5 hours to get home tonight freaking construction!!!! I have a guy for 9mm in Maine hes been sending me the $14 fixed rate box filled to the brim of really clean 9mm for $50. He says there is over 3000 in there and i believe there is much more. I find a few of the berden  primers with the two holes not sure of the spelling? But otherwise his stuff is awesome so clean it sticks to my powder drop so for the first time ever ive been lubing pistol brass. Text me if you want more info. John 860-478-8335. Good night

Thanks. I've got more than enough 9mm for my needs.
FWIW, It's "berdan", after the inventor Hiram Berdan. The following link can explain it...

Berdan = American, Most American ammo uses the boxer primer
Boxer = English, Most foreign ammo uses berdan primers
Go figure.

You may come across berdan primed brass with one, two or three flash holes. Sometimes, where the anvil is formed, you will have a dimple which will look like a boxer primer flash hole, so be careful when processing unknown brass.

If you guys ever need anything ordered, let me know.

My primary focus is ammo manufacturing so, we can always work something out.

Appreciate that. of course, a run to your neck of the woods would likely negate any savings, but locals should jump on this.
