    Default If you shoot but don't reload.....

    What are you doing with your brass? A friend of mine says he just sweeps it up and tosses it.

    I'd be happy to take it off your hands. .380, .38, .357, .40, .45ACP, really any caliber at all.

    Well, you gotta figure the price of the press, scale, etc etc, but once you get past that you can load a box for around $7-8 IF you have brass. Primers, powder, and bullets.

    Gas: PLEASE collect it and give it to me!

    The .45's I load are $17 per 100. That's a quality lead semi wad cutter, Titegroup powder and a cci primer.
    Don't know what factory ammo is but it must be at least double for the cheap stuff.

    That sounds right for .45, around $8.50 a box.

    MD, ever shoot any of the plated bullets? Not FMJ, the lead with the copper wash.

    No I haven't. What would they be used for. I load jacketed hollow points for defense loads. Usually Hornaday XTP.

    For target/plinking. You load them like a lead round for ballistics. The copper plating let's you shoot them at indoor ranges that have banned lead due to lead dust, and they don't foul your barrel. They're pretty inexpensive. Check out Rainier and Barry's Bullets for two examples.
