nope, it's so cheap there is no benefit to reload it, IMO. but i always save my brass.

i reload a few select rounds, but only when i have time.

i only really reload .308 though, it's so damn expensive to shoot new ammo through my Rem 700. Usually when i plan on shooting it i will have 2 weeks to load 100 rounds, as it does take a while to hand reload. between weighing powder, priming and reaming cases it gets tedious.

edit: i also reload shotgun rounds, but i use my friends carousel style reloader, all you have to do is keep it filled with shot, powder, primers, and give it a new shell for each pull of the lever. i can do a case of reloads in a night, and finish a few beers too.

Yes, I reload 9mm.

When I can find it on the shelves, it's about $25 per 100 rds for the bulk packages of 115gr fmj's, and about $25 for 50rds of jhp's

I reload 100rds of my lead for about $3
100rds of fmj, factory bullets for about $15(last bullets I bought were $99 per 1k)
100rds of jhp, factory bullets for about $22(last bullets I bought were $129 per 1k)
