There are two reasons it is more expensive. One the taxes on diesel are higher. Two the additions of things to make it less harmful to the environment increase the cost of refinement.

Look at the price of offroad diesel.

He is talking about bullets not loaded cartridges. I load my own in 38spl. I buy the Rainier plated for practice at $110 per 1000 + shipping. Add primers which went through the roof and powder and it cost about $10 for 50 rounds. I buy primers and powder locally because of hazmat fees. If you buy bulk, you can find loaded fmj's for about $15 for 50. 9mm is a lot cheaper to shoot. It does not even pay to load 9mm fmj unless you want something special.

Winchester white box 38 Spl, FMJ, is typically about 130 grain. IIRC, this is overrun of the .38 Special ammo made for the US military. Yes, military still uses a .38 revolver.

Hornady,Speer, Sierra will always cost 50-75 percent more than Remington or Winchester.

E-mail Remington and ask them where their nearest dealer is to your location that sells bulk packs of 1,000 bullets. Or check the bigger online sources, like Midway, Natchez, etc.

I usually buy bulk ammo from georgia arms and there stuff works great for me. Depending on where you live if you spend a certain amount the shipping is free. For me if i spend $400 shipping is free. I usually buy once or twice a year but i buy alot, around 4000 rounds. Hope this helps.
