    A little off topic here, but I would sure appreciate some inpt on where to buy some cheap .40 pistol practice bullets. Whatever's cheapest and works or whatever you guys would reccomend for practice. Thanks.

    Any leads on a cheap progressive reloader for pistol would be helpful as well. Thanks.

    Do you want to shoot lead (cast or swaged), copper plated or jacketed bullets.

    Need to know your barrel type and velocity you want to shoot.

    Different bullets for different applications.

    Magnus and Montana Gold both sell jacketed bullets.

    I would suggest you look at Berrys, Montana Gold, or any of the premium grade bulets ie: Winchester, Remington, Speer, Hornaday, Nosler if bought in bulk. I would price at Midway USA, Widners, Cabelas, Black Hills, Natchez, etc.

    Montana Gold .40 CAL180GR CMJ $293 (inc. shipping) per 2500. I think it's gonna be hard to beat that for practice ammo and it can be used at indoor ranges to boot.
