    .40 went up again :(
    IIRC it is now $28.67 or so/box of 100.:wtc:

    I started down that path, but then corrected myself and went back to 9mm.
    I still have a .40, my Cougar, but that was a pretty cheap gun and I really wish I had the 9mm of it as well.

    Yep, bought a 100 pack last night. $28.67. I fell into that .40 trap too. I wanted a 9mm 92fs but the guys at the gun shop are like "no man you'll love the forty and eventually the price will level out". Yeah right.

    Also, .223 200rd packs are $78 something now.

    Glad I moved on the the "gotta have a .40" phase of my life. Although 9mm is starting to pinch.

    I slapped myself for saying that 9mm was a good deal for $19.xx/box.

    at least when you buy a 357 sig there's never any false hope of inexpensive ammo at some point in the future

    I think we should bring back 41 magnum.

    Haha, I just bought the Ceiner .22lr conversion for the AR...It was nice buying 550 rounds for $12 :)
    I'm thinking of trading in my M&P .40 for a 9mm :(

    The Meijer down the road from me has boxes of 20 .223 for $6.99, $.35/round. They are currently out but are getting a shipment of 500 rounds. I think I may go buy them all when they come in.

    Where can i find info on reloading? Looking around makes it seem like it'll cost just as much to buy the components as it would to buy a box of rounds.
     
  21. Are you looking at new factory ammo, or factory reloads?

    Pick up a book like the ABC's of Reloading and check prices at places like natchezss.com If you can't save money with reloading (remember to factor in reusing your brass), you're paying too much for the components.
     
  24. The cheapest decent factory FMJ .45 I was able to find was $.35 a round. I can reload it for $.18 a round. At 2000 rounds, I'll break even on my Dillon, and from there on out, I'm saving money!

    I posted this less than a week ago. what's sad is that .380 is even more expensive at like $32/100.
