So far, I have cast over a 1000 rounds of 45acp.
And since joining a local pistol club, I have acquired a few thousand rounds of brass and a virtually endless supply of alloy for casting. my ownly cost now appears to be powder and primers. don't get me wrong though. smelting the range lead is a very dirty job* and one always has to keep an eye out for a live round that tends to make its way into the floor sweepings. "keeping an eye out" was an unintended pun. I am currently waiting on a new 9mm mold for my wifes pistol.
*smelting range lead keeps bullet casting from seaming too much like free ammo.
