Have you considered taking up reloading? I just started last week. I can load .45acp lead RN for around 11¢ per round.

I know this is not what your asking. But just thought I'd ask.

What were your start up costs?

Well my father in law reloads so he sold me a single stage press for 50 bucks. I bought a die set off armslist for 38spl and 45acp for 20 . The most expensive thing I have so far was my work bench that I bought for 80 at menards. Im borrowing a powder measure, scale, and hand primer until I get my own.

It's a little costly. But I shoot a lot. I bought powder, bullets, and primers from my local gun shop. The brass I got for free. Next batch of loads will be even cheaper as I found someone who cast their own bullets and they will give me some cheaper than what I can buy.

I'm looking at getting into it but I've also seen a few threads that said unless a shooter is doing match grade ammo it isn't worth it as far as savings, so I am starting to research it a bit more. Thanks.

Well if you shoot a lot it is defiantly cheaper as long as you don't count the time you put into it. It's very time consuming.

I continue to wonder about ammo prices. Prices for guns and knives seem to have reset, somewhat, after the spike three years ago. Ammo seems to have not done that. I looked at MidwayUSA and Natchez Shooting Supply. The best Natchez had was Blazer 230 gr. fmj for 31.4 cents a round (1,000 rounds for shipping) delivered to Arkansas. $35 for 100 Win. White box seems like a good deal even if it must be purchased at Wally's.

Front sight, squeeze, enjoy

The only Seller-Bellot I've run across here in S.W. Oregon is 12 ga. 00 Buckshot. Common here is CCI, Winchester, Remington, Hornady and Federal. Federal and Winchester white box 100's and Federal are the least expensive through Wal-Mart. Occasionally I can get Remington UMC 250 round boxes on sale at employee owned Bi-Mart stores.
