Hello from a FNG in Michigan

Hey everyone, thanks for letting in a mean old Marine from SW Michigan.

Just stepped up to a Kimber Master Carry Pro from a S & W 4013 TSW .40 cal. for personal defense.

This is my first .45 so my initial question is reload or buy in bulk?? Seems like a near equal business case.
I reload my .44 Mag (deer hunting gun) for considerably less than retail plus I get match grade ammo...

Looking forward to learning a lot from all of you here on this site.

Hello from a FNG in Michigan

Welcome to the forum from Mid Michigan. I reload all my pistol ammo. Once you have the brass it doesn't really save money because you shoot more. Runs me about $70 for 500 rounds of 45 using Hodgdons HS-6, extreme copper plated 230 grain lead bullets and Winchester Large pistol primers.

Welcome Jarhead, If you're a mean OLD marine I would expect you would have had a little experience with the venerable "ole slab sides" but if you're like me you probably just can't remember, haha. Well if that's the case it's like riding a bike; it'll come right back to ya. Congrats on your new Kimber.
