Bargain Finder 265: AccurateShooter’s Deals of the Week

AccurateShooter Deals of the Week Weekly Bargain Finder Sale Discount Savings

At the request of our readers, we provide select “Deals of the Week”. Every Sunday afternoon or Monday morning we offer our Best Bargain selections. Here are some of the best deals on firearms, hardware, reloading components, optics, and shooting accessories. Be aware that sale prices are subject to change, and once clearance inventory is sold, it’s gone for good. You snooze you lose.

1. Midway USA — Factory Seconds Bullets Sale

Factory seconds bullets
Great prices on huge variety of major brand bullets

Here’s your chance to score major-brand bullets at very significant discounts. MidwayUSA is running a big Factory Seconds Bullets Sale. Right now a wide selection of bullets are offered with major discounts. For the most part, these “seconds” bullets just have slight cosmetic flaws, so they still meet the needs of 99% of shooters. MidwayUSA doesn’t list brand names, but you’ll probably recognize the bullets by shape, weight, and tip type. Grab what you need now — the most popular calibers will sell out.

2. Amazon — Garmin inReach Mini GPS/SAT Comm, $349.99

garmin communicator
Very important safety system for hunters and hikers

Being in the wilderness on a hunt or backpacking trip is great. But it can also be daunting in cases of emergency. Cell phones are great when there’s service but that rarely extends into the backcountry. Stay safe with the Garmin inReach Mini GPS Satellite Communicator. This small, lightweight unit can send a life-saving SOS in an emergency. Plus, with the inReach service you can send/receive text messages via satellite. Measuring just 4″ x 2” wide and weighing a mere 3.5 ounces, the Garmin inReach Mini connects for messaging via the global Iridium satellite network (satellite subscription required). You don’t have to worry about being within range of a cell tower. NOTE: This Mini GPS device can link to your cellphone to display maps and routes.

3. Amazon — Lyman Pro Powder Funnel, $24.89

lyman pro funnel
Slick design prevents powder spillage — 6 inserts

Would you like the functionality of caliber-specific powder funnels, but don’t want to spend big money on multiple units? Here’s one smart solution — get the Lyman Pro Powder Funnel for under $25. The caliber-specific inserts effectively make the funnel a custom fit for each of your case neck sizes. The Lyman Pro Powder Funnel features a convenient carry case that holds the funnel plus six (6) inserts for 22, .243/6mm, .25/6.5mm, .270/7mm, .308 and .338 caliber rifle cartridges.

4. Graf’s — Sierra 7MM 180g MatchKing, Box of 500 for $169.99

sierra 7mm matchking
Excellent F-Open bullet at great price — $33.99 per hundred in 500/ct box

We’ve focused on bullets this week because they’re getting harder to find at a good price. If you’re looking for some great 7mm match bullets at killer pricing, check out these Sierra 7MM HPBT 180gr MatchKings in 500-count box for $169.99. That translates to just $33.99 per hundred (you could pay twice as much for other brands). We can’t remember the last time we’ve seen true match-quality 7mm bullets at this price so stock up now while you can.

5. PMA — PMA Mini Mite Priming Tool, $99.95

pma priming tool
Handy, very precise, with primer depth adjustment

Precision priming tools are favored by many serious reloaders for good reason. These one-at-a-time units permit you to feel how far the primer is seating, even when it’s at crush depth. If you’re in the market for one, check out the Mini Mite Priming Tool from PMA. It features an easily and infinitely adjustable primer depth adjustment (in the head) and easy to swap out primer punch assemblies and utilizes Redding press-type shellholders (one is included with the tool).

6. Sportsman’s Warehouse– Blaze Orange Hunting Gear SALE

blaze orange
Hunters should wear Hi-Viz orange gear for safety

Hunting season is here. During a hunt, safety is all-important. Many states require Hi-Viz blaze orange safety gear (hats, vest etc.). If you need to pick up Blaze Orange gear for your next hunting adventure, check out the blaze orange assortment at Sportsman’s Warehouse. You’ll find great prices on hats, vests, jackets and more. As a bonus, many of these items can do double duty the rest of the year for personal protection while running or biking on the road.

7. Powder Valley — Shooters World Powders

blaze orange
We’ve been hearing good things about Shooters World powders

Have you been looking for a good powder replacement for well-known powders that are always out of stock? Head over to Powder Valley where you’ll see a complete selection of Shooters World Powders that can be substituted for your normal powder. These powders have received many good reviews. You’ll find burn rate profiles that work well as substitutes for popular powders such as Varget, H4198, and H4831.

8. Midway USA — Pelican Case Sale — Save 25%

pelican case sale
Some great deals — Add cases to cart to see discounts

We use (and recommend) Pelican cases because they are rugged, secure, and do a great job of protecting your precious arms and optics. Pelican cases always offer good value, but right now you save big (25%) with MidwayUSA’s Pelican Rifle Case SALE. With sale prices up to 25% Off, MidwayUSA is offering deals you can’t find anywhere else. NOTE: You must add each Pelican item to your cart to see the actual discounted price. For example, the Pelican V800 is $149.96 marked down from $199.95 (25% Off). And the Pelican 1750 is $202.46 marked down from $269.95.

9. Amazon — Reusable Banded Ear Plugs, 25dB NRR, $3.95

reusable ear plugs
Great for hunters — insert in seconds before taking the shot

Shooters need good hearing protection — you only get one set of ears! While muffs work well, they are not ideal for some situations, such as hunting. When you need easy on/off and light weight, consider Sellstrom Reusable Banded Ear Plugs. These washable 25dB NRR banded plugs rest comfortably around your neck when not in use. Get good protection for under $4. Hunters can keep the band around their neck and then instantly put hearing protection in place when it’s time to shoot.

Bargain Finder 100: AccurateShooter’s Deals of the Week

Accurateshooter Bargain Finder Deals of Week

Today marks a milestone — this is our 100th “Deals of the Week” feature. We’ve got some awesome deals this week, just as every Monday morning we offer our Best Bargain selections. Here are some of the best deals on firearms, hardware, reloading components, optics, and shooting accessories. Be aware that sale prices are subject to change, and once clearance inventory is sold, it’s gone for good. You snooze you lose.

1. Bud’s Gun Shop — Howa (LSI) 6.5 Creedmoor GRS, $799.00

Buds gun shop Howa 1500 6.5 Creedmoor GRS Berserk stock Bargain sale $799

This is a heck of a deal. Fine action, great stock, shockingly good price. For comparison, Savage sells its similar 6.5 Creedmoor Model 10 GRS for $1449.00 MSRP (street price $1250.00). Frankly, we prefer the Howa 1500 action and trigger, though we like the versatility of the Savage barrel nut system. Hard to go wrong here with Bud’s Gun Shop’s $799.00 price. That’s for payment via money orders, checks, or echecks; credit card price is $822.97.

Buds gun shop Howa 1500 6.5 Creedmoor GRS Berserk stock Bargain sale $799

Rifleshooter.com published a FULL REVIEW of this rifle: “Precise — The Howa GRS was capable of sub-MOA 5-shot accuracy out of the box. Value — The street price on these guns is well below the cost of a custom rifle. This would be a great entry-level gun. Stock — The length-of-pull and cheek-piece adjustments on the GRS were fantastic. Stock was extremely comfortable in alternate positions.” READ Rifleshooter.com REVIEW HERE.

Howa 1500 GRS 6.5 Creedmoor Specifications
Howa 1500 Heavy Barreled Action with HACT 2-Stage Trigger
GRS Berserk Stock (Pillar bedded 15% fiberglass-reinforced Durethane)
Accepts Detachable Box Mags (with extra-cost accessory kit)

bullets.com powder propellant hodgdon imr alliant vihtavuori powder sale

Got powder? If you need smokeless propellants for your rifles and pistols, head over to Bullets.com which has slashed prices on its powder inventory. There are great savings to be had here, honest. We compared Bullets.com’s inventory reduction sale pricing with some other online powder vendors. With Bullets.com’s current price cuts, you can SAVE $4-$7 per pound for even high-demand powders such as Varget. Bullets.com’s powder sale is scheduled to run through 8/23/2017; however, prices are subject to change. Here are examples of current Sale Prices.

6. CDNN Sports — Walther PPS M2 9mm, $299.99 with Rebate

PPS M2 Carry Concealed Walther handgun pistol CDNN Rebate Sale

PPS M2 Carry Concealed Walther handgun pistol CDNN Rebate SaleGrab a Walther PPS M2 for under $300.00. This is a great little concealed carry pistol. You can run it with a flush mag for deep concealment or with an extended mag that provides a more comfortable grip (photo at right). This week, CDNN Sports is offering special sale pricing on the Walther PPS M2. Get $60 off regular the retail price. Combine that with Walther’s $100 manufacturer rebate, and you can get the PPS M2 for just $299.99.

We do like this little pistol — it’s comfortable, accurate, and has a decent trigger. The PPS M2 is the carry choice of our System Administrator. READ PPS M2 Review.

NOTE: The PPS M2 LE Edition 9mm is also on sale right now at Brownells for $419.99 (plus $10 handling charge). Use Code M4Y to get an extra 10% discount. That lowers what you pay Brownells to $388.00. After the $100 Walther Rebate, your net cost is $288.00.

7. Midsouth — Hornady Reloading Manual (9th Ed.) $9.99

Hornady 9th reloading manual

Late last year, Hornady released the 10th Edition of its reloading manual. That costs $28.04 at Amazon.com. But you can get the 900+ page 9th Edition Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading (hardback) for just $9.99 at Midsouth. We think that’s a great deal. All the key information is still there. The 9th edition covers 233 different calibers/cartridges (including 6.5 Creedmoor), plus 146 powders and 304 bullets! Each cartridge data section features Hornady bullets along with velocity and powder recipe tables. FYI — the 10th Edition adds the new ELD and ELD-X bullets, a handful of new cartridges plus IMR Enduron powders. But other than that, you’ll probably be very happy with the 9th Edition at one-third the price!

8. Amazon — Cotton Cleaning Patches, 800 for $8.99 – $17.99

Amazon bulk pack patches 800 cotton flannel

Got patches? Here’s a great deal on 100% cotton flannel patches. There are many sizes available, starting at $8.99 for 800 3/4-inch “17 Cal” patches. For 6mm rifles, we like either the 1-inch “22/.223″ patches or the 1 1/4-inch “.25/6mm” patches priced at $11.99 for 800. These are Amazon’s #1 seller for gun cleaning patches. Some shooters prefer to wrap their patches around a jag or brush and square patches work better for wrapping. The large, 2-inch .30 Cal patches cost $17.99 for 800. These prices include FREE Shipping for Prime Members.

9. MidwayUSA — Pro Series Folding Shooting Mat, $29.09

MidwayUSA folding padded shooting mat multi-cam

We like this folding shooting mat for three main reasons. First, it has nice half-inch-thick EVA high-density foam inside. That 0.5″ padding makes this mat MUCH more comfortable than thin mats when shooting from concrete or hard ground. Second, at 76″ long x 35.5″ wide, the mat is big enough for tall guys and there’s plenty of width for log-books, ammo boxes, and other gear. Third, the multi-cam pattern is distinctive. When you’re at a big match with many competitors, this mat is easy to spot, so you can quickly find your place on the firing line. The Pro Series Folding Shooting Mat is currently CLEARANCE SALE priced for $29.09, marked down from $109.99. Choose either Multi-Cam or OD Green for $29.09. NOTE: This is more like a work-out mat than a typical thin shooting mat. It does NOT roll into a small bundle, but this is much more comfortable for long shooting sessions on hard ground.

10. Amazon — Caldwell Front and Rear Bag Set (Unfilled), $11.29

Caldwell deadshot front rear bag sandbag sale varminter

This is a functional, “field expedient” system that’s easy to haul around and only costs $11.29! Varminters can keep these bags in a vehicle for deployment any time. Act quick — this is a special sale price at Amazon.com. This unfilled bag combo sells for up to $25.00 elsewhere. Yes this is a very inexpensive system, but it works surprisingly well, particularly with “standard” rifles with narrow fore-ends. Rather than sand, you can fill with rice or media to make the bags lighter. This system features a heavy-duty clip and D-Ring for linking the two bags for easy transport. The Caldwell DeadShot bags are crafted from durable, water-resistant 600 denier polyester.

BAG Dimensions (filled): FRONT bag 11″ x 8.5″ X 6″; REAR bag is 5″ x 5″ x 4.5″.
