Yesterday I made a first-time visit to to a recently opened Academy Sports store. I noticed that this location carries a selection of Lee and RCBS reloading equipment as well as Winchester primers and Hornady bullets (no powder).

Is this a new thing? The other two Academy stores in the area do not stock these items or at least did not the last time I was in either of them.

The ones around here stock primers but no other reloading supplies or equipment.

The prices on most of the stuff was fairly high. A nearby Sportman's Warehouse beats them on most of what they offered.

They have an RCBS rotary media separator for $39 but the box it's in is beat all to hell. I should ask them if they're willing to give me a floor model discount on it provided it's not damaged.

The one nearest to my place just did the whole renovation a month or two ago, now they're carrying bullets, primers, books, presses, and the usual accessories.

They are currently waiting on the safe and certification to stock powder.

My local Academy carries reloading stuff but they are pretty pricey.
