So, recently I got an old Colt SAA peacemaker remake because I love old westerns and just anything in general with a lot of history behind it. I also am about to journey into the world of loading/reloading ammo. I got tons of great advice and decided on 38/357 mag and 45 Colt. Today my choice was verified when I almost had a heart attack finding out what 45 Colt factory ammo generally costs. I dont want anything fancy, I just wanna be able to have fun at the range shooting 45 Colt without breaking the bank to do it...just some soft-lead, low pressure cowboy rounds are more than fine with me and I can always keep the factory JHP or SJHP stuff for if i ever take it as my woods gun. So just looking for advice on where and how to get 45 Colt ammo that wont cost me an arm and a leg (I could get almost 175 rounds of 9mm for the same price as 50 rounds of 45 Colt at local shops). 45 Colt is obviously first and foremost a hobby-round to most people (if that makes sense). So how can I enjoy my peacemaker with peace of mind? Will reloading save me a lot? Are there places online maybe where I can buy 45 Colt that is specifically made just to be cheap range ammo? And is there a reason the cost is so high for factory loads?
