    Does anybody know of a place that sells good, quality factory re-load ammo. By factory reload I mean on good, modern machinery for mass production (not in somebodies basement with a progressive reloader). Online place is fine. Thanks.

    Georgia Arms and Pro Load are good ones to look at...

    I have shot Greatlakes ammunition reloads before with good success. They sell at gun shows now but plan to sell directly from their website soon.

    I like their ammo. Looking for something a bit cheaper if possible.

    I had no problems with their ammo, plus they made a hot loaded round which was fun to shoot but not practical put a couple in your friends glock mag without letting him know. . . priceless.

    When I retire I plan on spending plenty of time hunting and shooting. So maybe I will get back into it. IDK though, I have too many different calibers to reload. I want to spend at least as much time shooting as reloading.

    My first gun was a 9, then i got my .40, i just recently got a .45. the prices keep going up. me and my dad are going to be getting started on reloading our own this spring. it will be good to spend some time with the pops, and ever since i bought him his glock 23, he is waiting for reasons to plink around/reload.

    I get most of my 10mm ammo from http://www.reedsammo.com . He's got a good selection of "non-standard" ammo.

    Well I'd offer my services, but since I'm just a one man microbusiness in the UP with a couple Dillon progressives and more licensing than the other companies, I guess I'm not welcome. I'll post my prices anyway. 9mm FMJ $190/K, 40 S&W, FMJ $226/K, 45 ACP FMJ $278/K.

    Tell you what. Send me your address and I'll send you 50rds of 9mm, 40, and 45 to try for free. You can pick any of those calibers or all three and I'll send you a box of 50rds per caliber. If you like them, pay me. If not, they're on me. Worst case they will run you $34.70 plus shipping. I'll eat the 6% sales tax.

    freakshow, I load all my own ammo, so I couldn't care less about your ammo prices and such.

    However, PLEASE don't just be a tease and tell us in passing that you are a NFA manufacturer. You need to post pictures and/or videos of some of your production items!!!

    Nah, I think I'll let you squirm in your chair at all the stuff I have made. I make everything from machine pistols to belt fed crew served full auto. Working on an AK machine pistol right now simply because I'm bored and I can do it.

    Sorry, but I've been around the block enough times not to squirm over any gun related gear. :P

    Still, pics or it didn't happen.

    I don't understand all of this crap?? If you are legit why not post pictures? By not doing so you cloud the issue IMOP.

    I don't post gun pics on the internet unless they are for sale. I was posting the licensing credentials of my company to show that although ammunition is loaded on Dillon progressives, I have the same or more licensing than the bigger companies. My company has the exact same licensing and privileges that Remington, Browning, etc have. Just so happens I'm a one man operation in the Keweenaw. Guess that ruffled some feathers here and the gun owners here don't want to support a MI business. I'll show myself out. Thanks for the warm welcome.

    OK look you posted text that stated what you are .... however anyone can claim to be whatever they want to be on the internet.

    I just feel that a simple website with a few pictures of some of your product would be proof enough.

    I am sorry if you feel we are not interested in helping local businesses but lately we have been overrun with folks claiming to be various things with no proof of it. This has lead us to be rather hesitant to take all posts at face value.

    Hows his 10MM ammo?

    How do you like the 10MM?

    What model gun do you like?

    I used to carry a Smith&Wesson Model 1006 loved the gun and sold it, now I regret selling it. I have Pondered the Glock 10MM I have large wide hands so the full sized Glock is what I have considered. I talkd with some Deputies in Alpena few years ago and they liked the Glock 10MM they were issued.

    I am uncertain why Hombre1 doesn't like basement ammunition as he referenced. I started relaoding as a teenager and now at my advanced age can say that in the last near 40 years I have had less than 6 misfires and all were due to primers of a certain batch/lot purchase. Other than that I love my loads. So do a number of officers I loaded for. Corbon was once a tiny reloader and so was Lee Jurras of the Super Vel fame. Now I am showing my age with the Lee Jurras reference.
