These times are oerfect compared to some of the older days..ammo is plentiful and cheaper by the week

Relaxers are you still cranking out ammo or buying factory new since the times have changed and prices Iíve seen are the cheapest in 12-15 years.

I myself reload but still on stuff bought from year or 3 ago... but prices lately have me rethinking ,as my majority is the common calibers 9,45,233....

Prices as of lately though.. under 25 cents for new 223/556 ammo...$160 for a case of 9mm..etc

I am all about reloading for cheaper amno, better accuracy etc..but...

I'm doing both. Saving brass and reloading as I stocked up on components when they became available (waited a year for two 8 lb caddies of WW231 on backorder). But when I see a pet factory load "on sale", or a case lot of something good shows up, I make a purchase.

If I needed 1000 rounds of 5.56 FMJ for a run ‘n gun class where minute of Man accuracy was plenty, I’d look for a $250 case. But since I’m shooting for sub MOA as far as I can see....handloading is the way to go

I hear ya both...I’m still cranking em out slowly but enjoy it.. didn’t shoot as much this summer but the ammo boxes are all about empty for all my plinking stuff.

Prices as of late and rebates on top...wow..I’d be buying a few cases here and there if I could also.

I agree for accuracy - price per round definitely reloading is where it’s at...

I’ve got enough stuff on hand to reload comfortably for a while. I’m still cranking out rounds cheaper than buying factory. A carbine class isn’t in the future, so I haven’t purchased a case of anno to have on hand, but may just in case. But that will be in the new year.

I stick with Xtreme. Iíve used RMR and Berryís but been shooting Xtreme in 380 (wife), 9mm, and .45 with a few 55gr FMJs thrown in (think Iíve shot 1000 of the 8k I ordered) but mostly shoot match AR bullets these days

Their sister company, Freedom Munitions, has some 50gr .22lr HUSH ammo Iíll be reviewing soon in pistol and rifle

Not hating on reloading, but its a discipline and I don't have that much attention span. I'd rather clean the basement than sit there, pulling a crank. I'm sure there are people who think sharpening a knife to a nice, toothy, working edge, or stropping up a mirror shiny razor edge would be monotonous, but we get our relaxation in different ways.

I wanna shoot, and I'm not that into the science and tweaking loads, so bulk works well for me. The guys I shoot with mainly shoot 5.56 or shotguns and think in terms of cases of ammo, so when we go out, we take turns furnishing the rounds. I thank God that nobody else shoots blackout!

Right on, ive nothing but good results with streamed stuff, no real reason to change. Just spitballing.

Ive used their stuff since I got into reloading.. 9,45, and 55/223 stuff in many weights ..also using up lady of a few K of Zero 230 fmjís with just a hair better accuracy then the plated ones.

Iíve used some Berryís in 9 and 45 and find their finish not as good and just seem to be a hair bigger so it sets off my ocd and I have to adjust for it...[BD]

..Your just scared....lol

Really I hear ya, prices now are getting so good that unless you got killer deals your not saving much just making more...[:D]

I hear ya though Iíd rather be shooting more also, but if I did Iíd run out of ammo..lol...

Itís fun seeing what little tweaks do, and just having a better overall for everything..


My arms sore...as I just finished prepping 500 + LC cases for some 69 & 77 gr match loads..by hand on a single stage.. they take awhile but I can build for half the price and shoot better for MY guns..
