I reload 44 mag and 45 acp with both lead practice and premium speer gold dots. I buy my bullets by bulk to get the best prices (5000 or better). Lee tumble lubed bullets are the lowest cost self cast. I match weight between speers and cast so no change of POI.
Price per round is 44 mag cast .165 cents per round, $8.25 per box. 44 mag speer gold dot .268 per round, $13.40 a box. Price per round 45 acp cast .143 cents per round, $7.15 a box. Speer gold dot
.245 a round, $12.25 a box.
