This round costs almost as much as .45 but must need half of the raw materials (lead, powder, brass and small primers) to make. And 9mm is almost $.10 cheaper per round, although it takes more material to make. I assume companies make more .45 and 9mm and the scale is what affects the consumer price, but still that's a lot of cash for such a small round. For you reloaders what does it cost to make a round of .380? What I have seen are load charts with 3-4 grains of powder.
