Default Handgun Calibers

What are some of the cheapest/easiest handgun calibers to reload? And what are some of the more expensive/harder to find calibers?

Any caliber which uses 'a lot' of lead (big bullets) will cost more. Bullets are the major expense when it comes to reloading.
As far as 'easy', like he said above the 38/357 is easy. The 9/40/45 are not 'hard' to reload, but because they head-space on the case mouth they do take some getting use to.
