As per this thread "Do you compete with the same ammo you practice with? " I got thinking that it is time I start reloading 9mm for fun and future competitive shooting. I'm looking for suggestions on how to save the most money (or at least a good amount of money - I don't want to buy 500 pounds of powder right now just to save more) on my next, oh, 1000 rounds of 9mm. I already own a Lee Breech Lock reloading press, so that' what I'm going with. Sure, it isn't the fastest, but it will save me more money to use it than to buy a new press. So, to save on shipping costs, how about we go for all parts from one retailer? I guess I'll need bullets (it's a LW barrel at the moment, but may be for a future G17 or G34) powder primers dies I think I have everything else. The powder must measure well (e.g. consistently) through the typical Lee powder dumper. I already have walnut media and such for cleaning, too. I would like to go for a reduced power factor (which means less recoil, more fun, and I guess less cost in powder per cartridge), but until I get a different recoil spring we're gonna have to go with enough to move the slide as it is. Thanks for any suggestions. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
