So, I've been thinking about reloading for my 9mm.(Ruger SR9) Is it worth it? If so, what do you recommend for bullets powder and primers? Are cast bullets a possibility?
I'm considering trying coated bullets but I see they offer three diameters (.356, .357 & .358). Which size works best for you?I love reloading these; Eggleston Munitions, LLC - Eggleston Munitions - Polymer Coated Sport Bullets
You already reload, or no? If so, the cost of dies should be offset by your first 500-1000 rounds I would think. However, components are the same price as other calibers. Bullets cost about what .38 bullets cost, etc. But 9mm factory ammo is often time 1/2-3/4 of the price of other factory ammo. So the savings are less rolling it yourself.So, I've been thinking about reloading for my 9mm.(Ruger SR9) Is it worth it? If so, what do you recommend for bullets powder and primers?

Ahhhh..... got it.I shoot probably around 200-300 rounds a month. As far as equipment, my father reloads. I guess what I'm looking for is what combination works best for you guys.
True. I got into reloading for fun as much as anything. Someone could hand me over a turret or progressive press for free, but i'd still use my old single stage and enjoy every moment of while loading up some revolver cartridges with a cheap radio playing some classic rock really quietly in the background.GONRA believes "reloading" is best viewed as "another nuts & bolts hobby".
As was pointed out above, if one looks a $$$ only - is a PITA.
But reloading is an absolute necessity with collector autos, odd calibers, etc.
What else are you gonna shoot in a 9mm Glisenti? 8mm Nambu? etc. etc. etc.
Most find it a lotta fun...
