Just keep in mind that Starline sells brand new 380 brass direct for $114 per 1k. Yes, it is backordered and you may have to wait until April to get it but some people are charging that much for once fired brass. Here is a little math to help kill some of the hysteria around 380, at $90 per 1k, not unusual, that is a per pound price of about $13 per pound. Current scrap price is under $1.35 last time I checked. 9mm sells for about $2-3 per pound.

Go watch the reloading for sale forum, there are users on here selling it for $50-$60 per 1k, which is the same price per 1k as 45ACP, and 45ACP weighs almost twice as much :)

If you don't mind buying new brass Starline Brass (http://www.starlinebrass.com/) makes quality brass at a fair price. You can get even better prices and smaller quantities than on their site from online vendors like Midway, Graf & Sons, Dillon or Tennessee Valley Bullets (http://www.tennesseevalleybullets.com/products/brass.html).

Everyone seems to be backordered except for TVB but Starline has a posting their .380 Auto brass should be available on 4/9/10.

Take a .223 and cut it to .680" and set it next to a .380 case. Surprised? It isn't just a cut and size operation, the brass will require reaming to seat the bullets. Brass with split necks and dented shoulders that would normally be tossed in the scrap box will work too. You don't get much cheaper than free and if you can't recover it at the range, so what?

http://www.capefearammo.com/brassforsale.html I have bought a bunch of 5.56 and .45 brass from them and the owner is a great guy to work with.

Heck, I got so tired of trying to find .380 brass, I bought some from the first vendor I could find at a gunshow that had any to sell. One dealer of a 700+ table show had 500 new Cor-bon .380 brass, oh yes I bought it, and I'm sure I paid too much $70, but at least I got some. LM
