I had the same experiences with them but something has changed. I’ve ordered a few times in the last few months and they’ve been quick and accurate (all online orders). Heck, even called them a few weeks back and got a human.
Thanks Mammoth – I check there regularly. I mainly hit JM for 5 oz bars – they always seem to have them.
Today, twice at 1% above the bottom, I ended up going all-in again through a local dealer 60% and 40% SD Bullion.
This was a time for getting lots of ounces, and stuff you must have to replenish flipping stock or whatever your strategy is. Fancy coins (>$4 over spot) dig hard into your ounce potential when under $20 spot. Especially when generics are to be be had for little more than $1 over spot. $21 vs $24 is 15% of silver purchase power. The extra premium needs to be worth it. In my case, Silver Shield stuff, is. For now.
I really want to diversify my purchases more, but if you’re looking at higher shippings costs (SD Bullion agreed to combine with an open order I had with them, awesome) and at least $1 more per ounce for so-so looking generics….I have a hard time justifying that.
Apmex has a great range, but they punish you hard for buy one each. Even if you want to buy 100 different ounces. So I haven’t manned up for that yet. Will take cheaper ounces for now.
When silver is $40 premiums will be a smaller % of price, andd getting something different will not eat as much into ounce purchase power. Which really is important, if a position is risking being permanent until being sold to a refiner. For thay, you just want to the lower possible premium. For sales and flips in the mean time, you want the safety of low premium, but with added likelihood of premium expansion in future years. I like the Year of the Horse rounds for that. Especially the Provident ones. NTR’s at SDB are OK. Waiting for the 10oz bar. The 10oz NTR Snake bar is already doing well. During the strike year there is barely an added premium.
Anyone interested at parting out some assorted rounds they have doubles of? Let me know always, I’ll buy more than the local Craigslist dude and I’m nicer to deal with

" Right Xizang that's definitely likely. Have your big local stash very well hidden and tell only a few trusted people to get it if something happens to you.
If you've already told people about gold/silver maybe you should keep a small available stash in case of this scenario of you believe its ... "Reply To: Silver Shortage

" Interesting video. Similar to the other one's I've watched over the last 3 years.
Looks like my idea of 90% and SAE's only is the way to go. It does have me thinking about some 10oz bars....wait, no.

" Move away from the standard AR-15 ball rounds and move into soft point or ballistic tip and bump it to 60-70 grains. Penetration improves and tip makes expansion pretty drastic.
