I did some pricing comparisons to order some 223 Rem dies. I never used Titan before but their price with USPS shipping was good and I made the order. The next morning I realized I hadn't included the trimming case length gauge and so I gave them a call and the man said he was sure the die set had been processed. So I went ahead an ordered the case length gauge. The next thing I see is a refund for the postal fee for the case length gauge. Yesterday I got both items in a box having just order it on the 6/30, just 3 days! Not bad service. The fact that they didn't have a minimum oder fee was also nice.

Any time I order a LEE product. ( witch has been a lot) I order from Titan.

I have yet to a better deal any where else.
Price is fair
Shipping if cheap.
Shipping is fast.
And they accept paypal.

How do these guys compare to Graf & sons?

I have not checked them out yet. But, every time I order something, I check a few places and so far Graf has been the cheapest when looking at bottom line.

On some stuff its a horse a piece.

LEE MOULD 358-105-SWC SIX CAVITY

Grafs  $39.99 plus shipping of like 5 bucks

Titan $37.89 pluse shipping like 6 bucks

I bet if you look hard you can find a better deal and with Titan for some people the shipping is more.

For me, usually when I go there I already have in mind what I want. Its easy to find. Order and go.
But I have no issues with Grafs. I order lots from them too:thumbs:

Graf & Sons has been my go to dealer even though I have Cabela's a couple of mile down the road from me. I was just taking a peek at their web site and found that they were very comparable to Grafs when shipping was added.
What turned my head was as I mentioned the honesty and service when I placed a second order the next morning. They refunded the USPS mailing charge for the second order and got both items (in the same flat rate box) delivered to me in just 3 days. 
I still continue to use Cabelas and for that matter Midsouth but Titan is now my my list of places to peruse.

Added it to my favorites, although I usually stay pretty faithful to Midway USA (Son works there). I do like the shipping costs here though. One of Midway's down falls is thier shipping costs. I have pretty much just dealt with it.

If ordering than $100 from Midway the shipping is mitigated by their "special Discount " offers.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but, after pricing a very few items like a press and several die sets I really don't see that Titan's pricing is anything to write home about.

Buying direct from Lee seems to be as good as it gets...
And shipping costs, as I recall were reasonable.

Guncrank, I believe that the $19.00 mold is a double cavity. The 6 cavity below it is listed at $32.98. The way they have these listed with a horizontal line across the listing is very confusing. I've made that mistake on that site myself. RD

Rocky,

Thanks for the correction!

Although, even at $33 the Lee Store still has better pricing than the competition.

Probably the difference is the shipping. As I understand it they are a totally seperate entity from Lee Precision. But they are just a few blocks away so they can drive over and pick up parts. Who knows they might not even carry much inventory. RD

They are a dealer and claim to be just a few hundred yards from the factory.

I have purchased some things from them and their prices are good, but they were very high on shipping to me (Maine). Graf and sons beats them every time.

The main items I bought from them were some items I  needed (wanted) right away and were back ordered at some other places and they had them, so I paid the higher shipping so I could have them NOW!

But I have done that at Midway before too.....LOL

I am not knocking them, just saying places with flat rate shipping turn out to be a few bucks cheaper for me coming all the way East coast

I have given all these guys plenty of business over the years...LOL

Midway forced 2 AR 15 uppers onto me in the last year alone..LOL

Half the fun for me when it comes to buying is the shopping around, except when my dialup is bothering..  :dialup:

Have a good 'un, TCG

Titan is good, Grafs is good but 99% of my Lee stuff comes from FSReloading.

I price them all including shipping to the leftest coast and so far FSReloading has "won" the deal. This week by $7 on a $25 order over Titan.

On other than Lee most of my business goes to Grafs, used to be Midsouth with Midway coming in last because of their shipping costs. But the pricing delivered it the winner in every case. (love high speed internet, running over 20meg now) I like them all, just some get more of my $$$$$.

My 2 cents worth.

I've used Titan for any order of Lee stuff I have made over several years now.
They were also good for technical Q/A when I wanted a conversion for a bullet feeder I use for my sizing operation.

The ONLY problem I ever had with them was when somebody in the post office sent my order East instead of West.
Not Titan's fault. I learned the USPS can actually boomerang a shipment over night from Saugus Maine, to Saugus California.
And I'm pretty sure a moron lost a job at the Post Office Titan uses in Hartford, WI.

Titan has shown me to have the best prices, best availability, and the fastest service.
All requirements for me when ordering supplies.
If somebody doesn't perform, they don't get return business, nor endorsement from me.
