    Although many of you reload - I don't (maybe i should start?) I am in constant need of a reliable inexpensive supplier of factory GAP ammo. I think I may have found one: $17.25 per 50 American Eagle Red Box FMJ, which equates to $.35/round. I am ordering a thousand rounds and there's a few thousand more rounds available. PM me if you want the suppliers info.

    The GAP, like the .45ACP, is delightful to load.

    I'm still using the same single stage RCBS press that I bought brand new in 1979.

    1000 rounds of GAP ammo runs me $180., using Berry's plated bullets.

    Georgia Arms has 185gr GAP for $17.50/50 but nothing in 230gr.

    That's great! I am not the most mechanically inclined so what set-up would you recommend that's as close to 'idiot-proof' as possible?

    Cowboy- Heard good things but haven't bought from them yet. Figured that Federal at or around the same price as 'canned heat' would be a better buy for me.

    A simple single stage press, Lee carbide dies/Lee Auto-Disc powder measure/calipers and a Lee hand primer? And a couple of good reloading manuals. Oh, and a decent beam scale.

    Coupla hundred bux, or so.
