I load 9mm (as well as other calibers) for less than $70.00 per thousand.
$0.03 for primer + $0.01 for powder + $0.03 for 120g TC cast bullet (I cast my own) = $0.07 times 1000 = $70.00
Factory cost $200.00 - Reload cost $70.00 = Savings of $130.00
-Cost of brass reloaded 10 times = $5.00 per thousand loads.
Press and all tools have paid for themselves many years ago.
Grand Total Of Savings = $125.00
Not a bad Saturday when I save so much and have a enjoyable hobby to occupy my time.
The private ownership of firearms is an American Heritage. Anyone who disputes that is Anti-American and unpatriotic.
