If you reload there is no reason for reloading the 9mm as cost is going to be a wash.
If ALL you look at is cost, then pretty much yes. However only looking at cost overlooks the reason some of us reload, which is NOT to produce ammo cheaper than factory, or even as cheap, but to produce ammo that the factories do not.

Or the ability to make ammo when the store shelves are bare.....

I will admit I was a bit foolish not getting the convertible .357/9mm I thought I wanted, settling for a standard .357 (at a really good price) and before I got a serious jones for a non-semi auto 9mm, I got a 9mm Luger barrel for my Contender, and problem solved.

I don't think I would ever bother with a DA 9mm Luger revolver, I don't see the point to a 9mm Luger only revolver. But, that's just me.

IME the auto cartridges have appeared to be less accurate when fired in both a 357/9 and 45 Auto/45 Colt. I always suspected the long bullet jump of the auto cartridges might be a factor.

I shoot handloads almost exclusively so I load them with 357 and 45 Colt. Cost difference of plinking handloads between the respective auto and revolver rounds is very little.

Shooting a "man sized target" at the pelvic area, bit of a move.
