Loading locally made commercial cast bullets for my 9mm i can load about 1000rounds for 150 or so. So roughly .15 a round. With bulk plated that jumps to around .17 a round. Or for bulk jhp it would be about .20 a round so i can save over commercial cost any way i go. All my brass is range pick up though. If and when I get new brass i buy bulk boxes of WWB fmj ammo and pick up the brass. That being said 9mm at most local retailers runs about 15 per 50 for cheap fmj's.
