damn, i'll just skip the cheap shit and find some brass reloads.

so I guess i'll continue to ask the folks that view this thread to sell me some ammo!

I'm really looking to get some .45acp, even if its a proxy buy, I have plenty of coins to spend.

I thought you were going to reload .45?

Yeah, once I figure out why they cancelled my order without even notifying me..

I'm kind of nervous shooting my own reloads honestly, especially if its the first batch I've ever done.

Deprime, Prime, size, powder, seat bullet, crimp.  You can't double charge .45 cases with universal, won't fit.  Its pretty much fool proof unless you can't weigh powder or seat to the proper depth..  Take your time, its very straight forward, ammo is only 4 things stuck together (bullet, primer, powder, case). 

I love shooting my own reloads, I have one finicky pistol that I pretty much have to reload for, but man its so much fun with the right custom ammo..

Well if I'm going to go down this road again, I'll get a progressive ammo station. Any suggestions?

I got most of my 45 from here

http://www.wideners.com/itemview.cfm?dir=18%7C829%7C842

They had some great south African surplus.

The prvi PPU ammo is great as well.

Steel case is fine and all but the polymer/laquer gums up my sig p220.

Can't reload it, can't reload steel cased.

Can't reload Berdan primed ammo (alot of European ammo is Berdan primed).

I shoot a crapton of 7.62x39 and 5.56x45 steel cased wolf.  It works just fine.


That's been my experience as well. Even the cheep 7.62X39 does well. I wonder how much of that is the AK?

the aluminum & steel cases are both too brittle to reliablely survive reloading, and could become a hazard due to imperceptible cracks.  Berdan priming can technically be reloaded, it's just more difficult and requires different equipment.  Generally it's just not worth it.  A lot of military cases are steel these days because militaries don't reload and so the cheaper initial price of steel over brass becomes significant in the millions of rounds range.



"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

so for stockpiling/range use, steel or aluminum should be fine? I don't plan on reloading them.

Site to find and compare the lowest ammo prices:

http://www.ammoseek.com/

Slick deals equivilent for firearms:

I've heard tell of a few squib/hangfires from aluminum cased..  One of my buddies tried to shoot a .38 alum cased and it hung and he put a .357 right into the back of it..  At least he only got a bulged barrel out of it, didn't blow up..

The Aluminum cased it usually loaded really light, if you have a tight barrel, make sure they all make it out Wink

If you're only just starting to look at retail instead of surplus, don't forget about Dick's Sporting Goods or Gander Mtn. Dunno how cheap, but they both have a variety of ammo.

Yeah, I'm meeting a guy by bass pro shop to buy a couple cases of .223, I guess I can go inside and see what they have to offer.
