Several Questions, from an Idiot: Steel Casings
Hi everyone, new here. I see this is the REloading forum but I don't want to REload I just want to load. I am 100% confident that reloading will result in me blowing my hand up. This is not a criticism of the practice of reloading, I'm just a devout believer in Murphy's law.
I would, however, really like to buy brand-spanking-new casings and load them myself. Both as a money-saver and as a hobby. Since I don't ever intend to reload my casings I want to go el cheapo and use steel but I can't for the life of me find them for sale.
I'm up against this .45 ACP buy TULAmmo (not sure if it's "Tula Ammo" or "Tul Ammo" I've seen it both ways) that I can get at a secret, undisclosed website for $14.19/50rd box (don't you dare go buy it all out of stock). That is a little more than $0.28/rd and the cheapest brass casings I have found are about $0.25 a piece. No way am I getting a bullet, powder and primer for 4 cents.
