Living in NY state (upstate, actually pretty gun-friendly up here) I can't order ammo from MOST online places without going through an FFL (most that are convenient are GREEDY and would NOT do it for a low cost). So...compared to Wal-mart prices, I do save about $5/100 9mm rounds, using Berry's plated bullets and Titegroup powder and CCI primers bought locally.

I reload 9mm in stages. I tumble them and sort. Then I will de-prime/resize. Then I will bell and re-prime with a hand primer. Then I'll charge and load bullets.


But, I can shoot my airguns at $10/500 rounds...

I bet those would really confuse the forensics lab!

I use a 9mm carbine here in the UK.

I buy factory ammo and reload for it.

The factory ammo is used on outdoor ranges with no restrictions on bullet types, I reload because my local club is an indoor range and owing to the bullet stop set up we are not allowed to use jacketed bullets, so I make lead bullet loads for indoor use.

Overall our costs are higher, but I can make 500 lead bullet reloads for about the cost of 150 factory rounds.

Now compare the price of handloaded ammunition to something like Buffalo Bore Products, and you'll soon realize that it's more economical than you think.

For instance: I have a Husqvarna pistol that was originally chambered in 9mm Long, aka 9mm Browning.

The importer inserted a bushing into the chamber to convert it to .380 Auto.

A factory .380 round will cycle it, if you keep a death grip on the pistol, but it has a tendency to short stroke and stove pipe. .380 factory ammo just doesn't have enough oomph.

Buffalo Bore makes a 100gr +P round that cycles the pistol perfectly, for the low price of just over a dollar a round.

I think I can handload for a bit less than that.



I've got several revolvers in .32 calibers. .32-20, .32 S&W Long, .32 H&R Mag.

If you can even FIND ammunition on a store shelf for these, it'll run you more than $30/50 rounds, and closer to $40/50 rounds.


You can't buy .45 Colt that isn't 'Cowboy Loads' unless you buy Buffalo Bore, or the like.


There are MANY reasons to handload ammunition.

I'll keep doing it.

I load 9MM for three reasons:

Hand loading premium bullets is far less expensive than buying premium factory loads.

For practice ammo, I don't always get the same level of accuracy from factory ammo that I get with my reloads.

I can make ammo not available in factory loads such as my 90 gr HP varmint loads.

Well about three times a year a company out of California puts their brand of brand new 9mm on sale at .13 cents a round and no shipping and handling on the first order. 115 grain round nose. I have been shooting it for a few years now, I usually order 5000 rounds. My BIL orders their 230 grain round nose .45 acp he usually orders 5000 rounds. It is shipped in bulk in a plastic(Harbor Freight style) ammo box.

I also buy my .40 S&W ammo from them.
