    You should start reloading.

    I can buy 100 for $19.99.
    I can reload 100 copper plated for $10.34 and 100 lead bullets for $8.xx.

    It's not stated on the box, but I assume they are factory reloads

    How much does a typical reloading setup cost?

    I'd recommend this:
    http://www.kempfgunshop.com/products/newitems/KempfKit.html

    If you shoot just 300 rounds a week, it will pay itself off in under 2 months(depending on the components you buy and if you get them in bulk or not).

    I can give you more info on certain things if you want. I'm no pro, but I was where you were at a few months ago.

    I have a pretty sweet Excel spreadsheet that calculates costs and payback, if you want.

    Hey, can I get a copy of that sheet? I just picked up the press from my grandparents and my dad gave me his stash of .40 brass, primers and projectiles. He gave me some .45 stuff too but I don't have dies for that yet.

    But on topic, not a bad price as far as sto-bought goes.

    Sure... direct me to a site where I can upload Excel files or give me your email address to send it to you.
