I have 6 more days before I can pick up my RIA 1911 and I was wondering where you guys buy your bulk ammo from.

I am looking to buy 500 or so rounds for the cheapest price, also I prefer brass casings over the steel casings, or just an all around clean ammo, thanks in advance for the help.

Look at sgammo.com
I shoot .40 and get it to my door for under $275 per 1000.
45 is nice too, check it out.

Roll your own.

The gun is the cheapest part that you will ever buy.

Should have made it a nice one. Oh well.

Get a nice progressive press and start pulling the lever.

Agreed. Not only that, you can tailor the loads to the gun.

Nothing wrong with an RIA now get a reloading press and start doing the math and keeping good notes on the right loads for your hand gun. Once you have the right load, bullet, and powder you can stock up for a lot less then ' bulk ammo '

Factory ammo, good prices surplusammo.com buy a few thousand, retrieve your brass and call Dillion Precision for a Square Deal (pistol calibers only) or a 550B or my favorite the 650 with case feeder.

I've started hoarding .45ACP myself in the last year or so. I recomend for now go to a Walmart that sells ammo and get some of the Federal 100 round box for $29 to start with. Pretty much a gunshow price without paying for a ticket in and parking. Then start watching the Marketplace section for deals when they pop up and buy mail order. I like www.palemettostatearmory.com for their decent prices and occasional free shipping deals. Then just buy whenever you see a good deal. Buy more than you need and put the extra away. I don't plan to reload but I do pick up my used brass at the range to save. Maybe I can sell it or trade it for some ammo latter? Good luck.

I have purchased 9mm and .45acp from ...
http://www.freedommunitions.com/

They sell reloaded cases and new cases in several bullet styles.
Reloaded .45acp rn case of 500 $145.50 plus shipping.

Their ammo shot pretty clean functioned 100% and all went bang.

Reloading is the way to go with .45, lots of savings especially if you shoot lead.

I reload and bulletsmans bulk is still cheaper than I can reload my 9 and 45 before dies and wasted time and baggies he provides..

When I get a 357 quote from him probably 357 as well but if not I wont mind loading up my wadcutters. Only thing I reload for is my 7.62 for my 700 match loads all other bulk even 5.56 fed stuff is cheaper than if I reloaded my self or same exact cost if I shopped around and waited for sales but I'd rather save the effort and time honestly.. More hastle than a few bucks is worth to have someone do it all for me

I reload .45ACP 200 grain LSWC for around 10 cents per round. The trick is to buy in bulk, last component order was 8# of Win-231, 10,000 Win primers. Bullet order will be 10,000.

Where do you find bulk reloading supplies??

Only things I see are per 100/500 online or in store.. And those prices are usually set..

So true haha.... I have shot enough ammo out of my pistol to get myself 2-3more of the same handgun.

I agree on the reloading, if I started doing it from the get-go I would have already recouped the cost of the press.

500 rounds? Is that even enough to be considered "bulk"?

Awesome links.. What powder do you use for handgun? Ive only heard of using tight group but your site doesnt list it. So im curous what powder do you use when buying from them and is it a clean/fast burning powder? Trying to find a clean medium powder not to scorch my new GP100. Been reading up on the scourching the frame with fast burning light round bullets for 357.

Yea tell me about it.. Only really shopped at midway usa or my local stores not much or wasnt worth the pricing.

Cant say for 357, but win231 for 9mm/45acp has worked really well for me. Started with bullseye, but was to dirty.
Unless your ordering in LARGE quantity ( 5k+ primers, 8lbs+ powder ) its usually worth it to buy local due to hazmat shipping fees, but YMMV.

Yea so it came to the same thing if i go tight group with CCI primers and tight group with 125g round nose lead it comes out to about $165 to load 9mm which is bullet mans exact price but with FMJ and pre bagged per 50.. Hard to beat..

But Im waiting on a quote for his 357.. which is where Im really interested in reloading for.. I know the smaller calibers are hard to beat costs for just plinking rounds..

Man, I pay around 90-110 per 1k to reload depending on which bullet I'm using, and I'm not even ordering in large quantities.

For anyone interested, this is a basic reloading calculator you can use to get an idea your cost of reloading vs factory/reloads.
