    I really need to IL you because you're a fucking idiot...

    If it has a Berdan primer, then I don't want to reload it. I'm starting to get some brass cased ammo to shoot now to start saving for reloading...

    At the indoor range, when I clean up my brass if anyone else is shooting a caliber I use sometimes I'll askem if they're going to keep there brass :mamoru:

    They have a sign at my range, you can only pickup brass that you shoot, if not it is STEALING :mamoru:

    :greddy: I like going with my cop friend when he brings along one of his buddies usually end up with lots of good handgun brass at the end of the trip. I've got zip lock bags of brass for calibers I dont even own (yet) stored away :mamoru:

    I don't really understand brass scavengers, you can find most pistol brass for pretty cheap.

    knowing you have brand new, matching headstamp, never fired brass > guessing at the range

    If I ask for it, I usually check out what ammo there shooting first, but as long as you inspect the brass good no big deal, but I dont go looking through the brass buckets at the range like I've seen some guys doing :mamoru:

    I'm just kinda paranoid about what I use, I know it's ok but I prefer not to risk anything :hs:

    Plus, I don't shoot in enough of a bulk to need to pick up brass :o

    :cool: bookmarked, I dont buy much brass, usually just pick up brass cased ammo when on sale and save them. All us reloaders need to get together and do a group buy on that govt auction site that sells once fired by the pallete of 55 gallon drums :eek3:

    My only problem with that site is they sell in lots of 500; I don't really need that much brass since I'm not really a high volume shooter at the moment.

    I'd also like to know where the hell he's getting that brass at, he already has 325WSM in bulk.

    How much would it cost to reload 1000 rounds of 9mm if you already have all of the necessary equipment? Also how much time would it take? If it's really cheaper then how much does it take to offset the cost of the equipment? I want to get into reloading but I just can't see how it would save a lot of money. It's a good skill to have, though.

    It all depends, find some bullets you'd want to use, brass, primers, and find a powder and figure out how many rounds you can load with a pound (7000grs in a lb) and do the math. Time depends on what kind of press you're talking about, you could do 1000 rounds on a progressive press in a little as an hour (as some advertise) but with say a single stage press it would take quite a long time. The price offset depends on how much you shoot/what you put into it.

    I don't know of anyone that reloads 9mm. I don't think it's worth it.

    A guy that works at a local range said he reloads for $3 per 50. I was hunting online and can't figure out what components he's using that cheap. I'll ask him next time I see him. If I can reload myself for that much, then I'd do it.
