    About the only ammo I buy online anymore is 10MM. I can get Sellier & Bellot 180 Gr 10 for less than $15 per box of 50 online and the best I've found at Academy is usually around $24 - 26 per. 9mm is so cheap these days why bother reloading it unless you just want to spend time doing it?

    I roll my own, and have for many years other than .22RF/.22WMR, but the glut of ammo now, and the prices have made me look at some of the bulk prices. I can still reload cheaper than factory, but don't have a problem hitting the handle on the reloader.
    Shoot a lot of USPSA Comps so the round count is pretty high vs a recreational shooter.
    Reloading is more a hobby than a savings for the record. Back in the day it was for savings. I enjoy getting out there and making some new loads to test at the range.

    Heck, I thought you was just kidding. Good company. I put an order in and it's at my door 2 days later with everything in the box and packed tight.
