Dealing with Brownells Australia has been an entirely unstatisfactory experiance.
Got an email from them the other day about something I can hardly remember ordering that I had long given up on.
When they were Sinclair’s International in the States the freight they charged was always a rip off, but otherwise they were good to deal with , and timely.
Won’t go near them ever again
Argue with a fool, and all the casual observer will see is two fools arguing.

what are the issues and processes of getting stuff from precision reloading to your door?
thinking in terms of cases and projectiles.
of note is they sell stuff to suit hunting as well.

The problem with buying brass and projectiles from the states is that they have to apply to the US government for a export licence. Some places will and at your cost, some won't because its to much trouble. Ive had very good experience with and ive also had good experiences with brownells australia in importing bulk projectiles that are not available for sale here in Australia.

I almost purchased something from Brownells in Australia after getting bumped to it by the US shop. I almost brought something from them but was informed in time that it was Shooters warehouse I was actually purchasing from. Killed the order there and then.

Stories above accord with the experience I have had dealing with the jerk and of others I know that have dealt with him.

Everyone, just throw your support behind one of the other great businesses supplying the target sports in Australia and avoid Brownells Australia. I’ll be waiting for BRT to get want I want into stock.

I have been waiting for an order for a week or 2. I emailed them and got a reply the next day. My other dealings with them has been ok. Lucky i guess. But i received an email from Brownells US, say i can order direct with them again.

Shooters Warehouse have got stuff for me that i could not get directly from the states, so i have a good opinion about them...

Interestingly though, I received an email from brownells usa today telling me i could again order directly from them if i wished, so perhaps shooters warehouse are losing their grip/monopoly.

i will probably use both at different times

I have used the USA Sinclair/ Brownells site many times over the years and the Australian site three times, both this year if it is a firearm part that involves an export permit the Australian is worth the wait... last time only four weeks....previously lost bloody count.

I found them to be very helpful EXCEPT they don't accept CC. Need to wire them funds or use Western Union. Both methods unsatisfactory for me.

Brownell Oz prices for me (NZ) are significantly dearer than ex Brownells USA. Same with their UK outlet.
