    prices have gone up, the local shop prices are always going to be different to the wholesalers, its a matter of overhead and buying power (don't forget the shipping charges with Midway)

    The prices are going mad but still cheaper than factory when you get through a lot

    I hear what you are saying my friend!!!
    As for Midway UK the prices they state online is less VAT , when you go to buy at the end of your shopping online that gets added and your postage too!!

    On a personal note it grinds me too , i used to do lots more target shooting than i do at the moment because of costs / same goes for my good hunting mates too who target shoot!!
    Could possibly end up that lots of shooters shooting less / profits could go down for supppiers hence business not doing so well , yes costs are getting out of hand a bit!!!
    Not being personal here but without the shooters = not much business = hard to make a living , which would be very sad!!!

    all very good points made,

    as well as my neck problems i can see me not doing the trips to bisley anymore and that will simply be down to running costs of both the veh used and the quantity of ammo i can get through in a day there,

    i am of out tonight on a foxing trip, but i have ltd myself to strick amounts of ammo, i have 2 rifles i need to check zero so theres mor costs (but one should not drop our rifle or take the barrel of the other to show a possible buyer how it comes to bit .

    i just think the everyday shoot will really find it hard to keep up, this then leads to not being able to do the shoots he has, and finally that could lead to him loosing the shoot and then steps in another shooter to take over.

    very sad indeed.

    Bob, out of interest where did the parts come from? I've found that reloading solutions is really well priced. Granted it's a bit of a trek for you to get there, but if you need anything (powder/primersetc., bit limited on the bullet side at the moment until TVP give me a sensible buy limit) I'll let you know when I'm over there and can pick them up.

    I didn't think you could buy sec 5 bullets from Midway anyway, thought it had to be face to face?

    add the VAT and the 25 pounds delivery charge for powder and bear in mind midway probably leave him about 8% margin in the first place! your mate got it reasonably cheap all thing considered!
