I'm seeing the following on:

9mm 124 grain Montana Gold CMJ $ 0.06 each in case lots
same for 115 grain

.45 ACP 230gr Montana Gold CMJ $ 0.105 in case lots

In my area it's up a little over 25% in the last 6 months. What are you guys seeing ?

Prices are going thru the roof on everything. I don't remember a jump like this in a long time. Some of the rifle stuff I've been buying for $15 a box has jumped to $21 here locally. Pistol bullets seem to go up even faster unless you're buying bulk packs.

Prices are ridiculous here if you want anything other than cast lead bullets.

A box of 115gr FMJ 9mm slugs will run me about $16 for 100. I can go to wal-mart and buy 100 rounds of loaded ammunition (115gr FMJ) for $14.59 so it's rather a moot point for me.

When reloading shotgun I really enjoyed it and saved a considerable amount of money compared to shooting factory loads but for plinkng with a 9mm it's seriously not worth it to me cost wise.

If you shoot a weapon that can shoot cast slugs safely go for it. I shoot a Glock and the rifling in a Glock won't allow the use of cast bullets (or so they say).

no cast bullets in glocks unless you buy another barrel with cut rifling :( .it is the only reason I don't own one.they are great pistols and very accurate.
