    The great Aussie powder company ADI has very good loading data, you can also call their customer service.
    Consider: casting your bullets, bulk buying of componets, bartering for brass and lead. The 9mm is one of the easiest calibers to handload so good luck.

    whats the conversion rate from australian cash to american cash? everybody here in america would love to buy ammunition at your price, although its more then it should be. at the moment, a box of bulk remington/umc 9mm 115 gr fmj is retailing at almost 80 cents a round before taxes. and thats IF you can find it. i havent seen any in a month now.

    Glad I'm not from where you're from Nicodemus, I can get 100 rounds of 9mm CCI Blazer Brass for about $22, winchester white box for about $27

    unfortunately that about the same here.

    IMO you need try some 124 cast truncated cone slugs to load that 9 with. the slugs I get from mike at mastercastbullets shoot great over Red Dot.

    michigan sucks, and those prices were for cheap plinking fmj ammo during a SALE they had 3 months ago. i believe the sale price knocked 30 dollars off the total cost of the box before taxes.
