My son just got a Ruger LCP and needs some inexpensive ammo to test his new gun and run it in. My searches so far have not brought up any reasonable prices but then, it has been a while since I bought ammo and I am glad to be a reloader.

It seems that Wolf .380 is all sold out, what would be a substitute and what would be a good source? Do any of the sources also offer discounts to C&R FFLs?

Brass cased, good stuff for the price.

17 bucks for federal fmj at Walmart. Cheapest american brass rounds I've found.
I've also used bvac stuff with no issues in my TCP. Its the same price at ctd. Don't know if its n stock though.

grafs.com/dealer has several brands for $12.99 or less for a box of 50, and they ship pretty fast.

I would suck it up and pay the $20 (or whatever the local price is) for my first box so he can try out the gun. And I'd order a set of dies, some once fired brass, and 500 cast bullets (95 grain.)

+1 on reloading. No one I know who shoots very much doesn't reload. I just finished reloading a run of 4,000 .380 for about .10 each, that's about $5 a box. :D

bullet .08
primer .015
powder .005
brass range pickup free

The fact that I am reloading is the reason behind my sticker shock for .380 ACP. I do not only reload, I cast my own bullets for all calibres that I shoot.

I somehow doubt that my son will reload the .380 ACP, though.

He just bought the gun yesterday,this Monday, when he dropped by the local gunstore. He wants to go to the range tomorrow and will try the Walmarts in our area before he goes there.

I 'll show him your recommendations.

Thanks guys.

Reloading is only part of it, kind of the beginning stage.
