What is the difference between plated and jacketed?
Jackets are thicker I believe. Plated bullets are just lead bullets that have been coated.

You actually have to use lead bullet reloading data when you reload plated bullets, but you can also use faster powders with plated bullets. Where as, if you used just lead bullets, you'd be restricted to moderate and slow powders in order to prevent leading.

Sure you can have some, are you reloading yet?

No, I'm no where close to reloading. But at 65 bucks for 500...

Is that bullets, or ammo? Maybe I'm confused here...

Just bullets. I wish it was complete ammo.

Sadly, I don't think we'll ever see 45 ACP that cheap.

Yeah. I'd just be happy to see ammo on the shelves again. If I ever find out which pawn shop is buying up all the ammo, I'll put the bastards out of business. I'll make sure every gun owner within 20 miles knows.

My reloading shop said that pawn shop was selling 45 ACP they bough at walmart for close to $80 a box. They wouldn't say which pawn shop it was though.

Sounds like you need to go scouting. Or stake out the walmart and see if you recognize the a-holes at a pawn shop.

I wouldn't recognize them if I saw them. There are a TON of different pawn shops in town.

Going tower climbing tomorrow up in Oakland. Found an antenna, 60' tower and all of the hardware for free, all we have to do is take it down. The boys and I are going up in the AM and getting to work. I'll take some pics from the top of the tower.
