Academy Sports in Arlington. Some 20 packs for $25. I passed...I'd rather get robbed by someone else at this point. :(

I got a little stash. Starting to wonder if a 380 is just too costly to shoot.

Probably harder to find than 9mm and .45; at least here in NE Texas. That's all that's keeping me from getting a Bersa CC .380. Well that and mags are more scarce than ammo.

I ordered 2 Bersa 380 (not the CC) factory mags from yourgunparts.com and received them in less than a week, was pleasantly suprised.

Which is exactly why I ordered the kit for my 650 Dillon a coupla weeks ago, and 2k once-fired cases. Didn't think I'd EVER see the day when I'd reload .380's - but looks like I gotta. Just SO glad I bought the reloading gear!

I have found the .380 is very hard to find and when you find it, it is more expensive than my .45 ammo. I pay 14.97 for my Blazer Brass target ammo at walmart, when I have seen the .380, it is at least that high or more.

I hope that you are picking up your brass for that price, well for any price actually. I would reload it.

I do pick up my brass but I have not got into reloading yet, I usually shoot a box of 50 through my 45 about every other trip to the range, I have a couple of 9mm's and a .40 I also shoot, ammo is a little cheaper.

You can reload for a lot less that the cost of a box of 50 in any caliber. I cast my own lead bullets and can reload the three calibers that you mention for between 3 and 4 cents per round (that does not figure in the one time cost of equipment). You DON'T have to buy the "latest and greatest" progressive press to make good ammo. You will make it faster with a progressive, but it is NOT necessary. Besides, by using a single stage, I have lots of time to teach my children the process. One really enjoys it.

I've been thinking about reloading, but have no clue where to start...
