    For my recently aquired SR9-C. I just ordered 1000 115 grain plated bullets from tj conevera, supposed to ship tomorrow.:) I've already got the Longshot powder, primers, brass, and dies. Guess what I'll be doing this labor day weekend, heheee!

    I'm figuring the rounds will cost me 11 cents/piece, $5.50/box. I'm paying $10.50/box for S&B ammo now, so that's 50% off.:D

    Not until you shoot twice as much :rolleyes:

    I just shot my first reloads this weekend. 9mm, 124gr Berry's flat nose. They run great, and NO LEADING! haha!

    That's my simple,economical 9mm bullet, a plated 115 grn RN. I use 4.2 grains of Titegroup powder, cycles fine at 1087 fps average.

    3uster, lmao, that's probably what will happen. I'll be shooting twice as much for the same cost. Oh well, shooting's a blast, so be it.

    Half off--and better quality, dialed in just how you want it. :)

    Yes, you will see savings on your ammunition. What you do with the savings is up to you. Most shoot more.

    Have fun.

    Costs me about $0.11 as well. But my MG JHP rounds are much more accurate than the regular WWB stuff I used to shoot.

    Enjoy!

    Why load plinking rounds, the savings is in loading stuff cheap enough for you to shoot a bunch that mimics you carry round.

    My favorite bullet! I even made a custom seating plug for it. I don't always crimp my 9mm bullets. But when I do, the FP bullet gets crushed around the edge, causing inconsistent OAL. A spare 2.00 seating plug and some epoxy took care of that.
