50,000 rounds seems a bit short to me, i get layoff during winter and can make close to 2000 rounds of 9mm a day. When i start shotting 500 rounds a day with confidence, is my personal benchmark for selling.
Just wondering, have you ever shot 500 rounds of anything larger than a .22 before? Reasonable question, youve only posted 4 times so Im just wondering if youve considered the actual time. R&D, commitment and cost of what your talking about doing. There are folks here that have been reloading ammo longer than youve been out of Diapers, some > twice as long so they can give you advice but only if your willing to listen.
My grandma Needle-pointed a sign for my Grand Father who was a Sig Col in WW2, he was in command of all the troops and crews that put up the new Microwave towers in Europe after every wire had been shredded in the war. His service was impeccable and he rose to Colonel very quickly. The sign says
"Dont Start Vast Projects,
with Half Vast Ideas"
It hangs next to my Desk cause it reminds me Grandma knew best!
Loading 2K of 9mm in one day will cost you how much? By the time you figure all the costs of creating a safe enviroment to do this kind of work, your gonna be "Shelling Out" $1K a day or more to make it and then you gotta market and sell it.
If you can get past the safety hurdles, your still sacked with the very expensive and frustrating challenges being your own business brings with it (Ive been a Small Business owner for >20 years, it gets harder every year). I like your enthusiasm but dont bite off more than you can chew, doing business in this country is tough at best, devastating at worst.
