    no, which is why it's $1 cheaper per 50 than the reloadable kind.


    Which, considering I don't reload, means I saved $26...

    I should probably put that towards a reloading press

    why not spend the extra $26 on rounds you can reload, then save the brass?

    Going to be using most of them at the fighting pistol class, where by the end of the day, I'm likely to be so exhausted, the last thing I'll want to do is sort through the rounds.

    I probably should save brass... but oh well, in this case having a slightly heavier wallet won


    I'm glad I bought when I did... prices increased the next day.

    sorry, missed this post


    got it from natchezss.com

    was $7.49 per box of 50 when I got it, now it's $7.99

    Prices will possibly be going up again on the first of april however.

    Ended up costing me ~$230 for 1300 rounds shipped to my door.

    So about $17.60 per 100... which is a dollar or two cheaper than WWB at walmart after you factor in tax

    :cool: that will give me a good point of reference - tomorrow i'm going to the big reno gun show and i'd like to walk away with a case of 9mm for a decent price.

    I'd say if you can get 1000 rounds of factory new ammo for under $180 out the door, you're doing quite well.

    I searched for quite a while, and this was the best I could find by far.

    It's 9mm. Unless you're accustomed to buying stoopid match-grade ammo that you'd rather roll on your own, you can't really compete with WWB economies of scale. Unless you're AB13 and have local hookups willing to sell components to you almost below cost.

    I did some pricing for 9mm reloading yesterday and I can reload for 10.9 cents a round. And that's just after 15min of browsing for components, I'm sure it can be lower if I looked for deals.

    edit: "free" brass from my previous shooting is taken into consideration for above price
