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

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 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.
