I bought the 250 9mm from Dicks...it was Ultramax reloads, LEAD! Dumby me didn't notice until I got home. I fired every one of them this weekend through my brand new SR9, and EVERY one of them fired without issue. Unless you consider the smoke signals I was sending. To rapid fire 17 shots would make the target disappear into a smoke screen. :)

Just paid 108.34 (tax included) for 300 rounds of 380 Winchester white Boxes Guess that's 10.07 per box w/7% tax..

Of Course it was my local gun shop where I buy all my stuff so they always give their gun customers a break.

BTW the 380 amo is usually tuff to find.

I'm not following your math. 300 rounds = six fifty round boxes or three 100 round boxes. So, you paid either $36.11 per 100 round box or $18.06 per 50 round box with tax. Still a good price, about like WalMart when they have them in stock. I just ordered some 100 round boxes from Cabela's at about that price.

LOL!!
Not the 1st time this has happened...,

Just to add, Wal-Mart now has UMC ammo, 250bx for $52+ tax and change, about $11 a box of 50 after "everyone" is paid, still not bad, especially compared to 45ACP (ammo/gun of choice:)

Picked up two bulk boxes of Federal .22LR (550 rounds each) at Walmart today - $18.97 a box. Been looking for .380 since I got my new LCP and he didn't know when he'd have any. Found some at a hardware store in a nearby town @ $19.99 box of 50. Target loads - not sure of brand as I asked my son, who lives near there, to pick them up. .380 is scarcer than hens teeth. I've got a box of Personal Protection loads but want to put some downrange to get comfortable with this little mouse gun.

I'm just happy I don't have to buy ammo... a few hours at the reloading bench and I have all I could want for under $5 a box of 50 for most handgun calibers.

Yep..., I "used to" reload about 20 years ago. I wish I would have never sold my set up. It was NICE!!! Hornady make some good stuff.
I plan to cut down on ammo purchases and buy a new Hornady or Dillon Progressive now that I have a LOT of time to reload again:)

Not only is reloading cheaper than buying ammo, but you have full control of the quality control. You can load for target, hunting, etc, etc.
The ONLY thing I will buy will be self defense ammo at that point.

As soon as I can make room and build another custom bench, I will start loading again (which will probably be at least 6 more months), but something to look forward to:)
(I love hoarding ammo, LOL!!!)

I'm west of ATL and sure don't see .22 ammo at wally world often! I'm close to Georgia Arms for the center fire ammo I don't reload.
