Do you? At what cost? Who has the most available components? Thanks.

I buy bullets from T&T reloading:

They are on the East Coast and show up at all the usual big gun shows, so I order over the phone and pick up at the next show to avoid shipping.

I have about 500 pieces of brass I've found at the range over the years. No one reloads it, it seems, so I get all the brass.

I use Winchester powder, which I buy in bulk for .45ACP as well.

That's the long way of saying I have no idea of how much it costs per round. I use my reloads for range practice, I carry with Fiocchi 60-gr HP loads.

What bullets of theirs do you use? I just got a .41 Mag., and I'm looking to feed it.

How do you like their hard cast bullets? Any problems?

Beware the man with the S&W .357 Mag.
Chances are he knows how to use it.

I have reloaded the 32acp.

This guy started using cut down 30 carbine brass. There has been allot of effort to try to get some power out of a 32acp. It could be done, if a gun had case support. The P32 does not.

Haven't started yet, but it's on the to-do list. Speer #13 only lists one load for my preferred powder, 2.6gr Bullseye under a 60gr FMJ.

Frank, I use 2 grs of bullseye with a Hornady 71 gr FMJ.Comes out to 9 or 10 cents apiece buying the bullets a hundred at a time.The Winchester booklet lists 2.5grns of 231 with the same bullet but I've never tried it.
