i picked up 2 more tins at the Cabelas in Buda, TX of Remmy 10's.  I had picked up a couple more at the Cabelas outpost in Waco, TX a few weeks back.  At the Buda location, they had loads of Remmy 10's, 11's, and CCI caps as well. The going price for Remmy #10's at Cabelas, least round here, is $7.99 a tin.  They also had pretty much every Uberti and Pietta bp handgun on display and in stock, as well as round ball molds from Lee in most of the more popular calibers, they have pretty much upped the selection on their bp stuff, at the Buda location.  The one up in Waco is a smaller outpost, they have a very limited selection of stuff ( i got a couple tins of caps and some .50 sabots for the ole ladies inline), but you can ship to store to there anything and save on all the shipping costs.

Jedediah Starr trading company has Percussion caps. The price is not out of line either...

I bought a bunch of Remington no. 10's.


How much was the HAZMAT, Bill?

I think it was around $28.00, which is why I bought 10,000 caps.  (jh

I have some friends here that I shared them with, for what I paid for them.

Ahh, that's the way to do it. With powder, also. Many places will allow you to mix powder within the case lot and that makes it easy to get your 2F and 3F all at once.
