Reloading Components Group buy

So not ALL components but I figured we should see about ordering what we can.

To start I wanted to see who would want to backorder:

http://www.zerobullets.com/

Examples,
9mm pills
147Grain JHP
125grain


.45 pills
230 GR. JHP

Sold in lots of 500/1k (not sure yet)


Any interest?

I'm still well stocked on 147gr 9mm, but I'm just about out of 125gr JHP

.45 I'm really low on, but I've started casting my own, so it might be a moot point.

I know lots of people are looking at getting primers. So keep your eyes open for primer deals - might help some CLSB peeps save on Hazmat.

On a similar but side note...do you have a breakdown of what an average cost to reload .223/5.56 or 9mm would be?

When I looked at it a year or so ago...it seemed like reloading .223 was around .50 cents/round. Which wouldn't make sense then. Today it makes sense just from the stand point of availability...but since you can find .223 under .50 cents....still not exactly cost/time effective.

Have things changed?

....I think I was around 17-19 cents a round for each 223 reload.

.32 was the cheap side of bulk 1k ammunition pre panic.

Yeah, pre-panic, I bought .223 for .33/round (after tax). Even so now, I picked up several hundreds rounds of .223 at Walmart for .33/round. That's the 100 round Federal value pack. But I've also paid up to .50/round now. I know a lot of people consider that cheap nowadays, but truthfully, if you look hard and long enough, you'll find the ammo at pre-panic prices.

If I could reload it at .17/round I would definitely do that. I started keeping my brass the last 2 times I went to the range, just in case. Guess I'll start collecting my 9mm also.

I don’t know much about handgun/rifle reloading but I remember watching my dad do this back in the day for shotgun shells so I have a decent idea on how to reload shells. Does anyone have any reference info about what it would take to get into reloading handgun ammo? I would be interested in reloading 9mm, .40 cal, .223/5.56 for right now.

I know the 9mm ammo sold in boxes is based on number of grains, but how accurate can you get with making a 115gr shell or any of the other weights, are they right no or is it within 2 or 3 grains? Do they have a reloading press that can handle all three (or 4) of the above mentioned calibers? I keep hearing that primers are hard to find, but is there difficulty finding anything else in this reloading process? Do the same primers work for multiple calibers? Does brass need to be washed/polished before reloading and is there specialty equipment needed to do that? Would my best bet be to drop of a bag full of brass at Rick’s house and leave him a $20 and come back a few days later for my reloaded ammo?

People who reload will not/should not reload ammunition for others. That opens up a huge liability pandora's box, if they fuck up a round and it goes boom in your gun.

There's lots to learn at first, but once you get started, it's awesome. Search the past threads on reloading here - there's several lengthy ones. That's what I did when I got started and that helped me out a lot. Myself, Rick, & Eric can also talk to you about it in person.
