Well if you look around at prices for reloading supplies you would understand. Primers are 30c a piece, bullets are 20c a piece and brass are 25 c a piece. You are looking at 75c a round before adding in powder.Its better to understand economics.
Supply vs demand.
Buyers determine pricing.
When people stop paying high prices, shelves will not empty as fast and prices will drop.
Until then, it is what it is.
I have seen local 9mm reloads offered for $1 a round.
Anyone paying that is retarded.
I'll pay more because I shoot, but I'm not paying a buck a shot for common pistol ammo.
