    380

    I sure am glad I read this thread. I sold my 380 awhile back and had 5 of the 100 round boxes of the Winchester white box left. I carried them to my local sporting goods store and told him to but $100 on each box. Went back yesterday and they were all gone. $500 in one day. I guess it is time to clean out the ammo locker. I think in 6 months, there will be plenty of ammo once the feeding frenzy is over.

    .380 isn't hard to reload, and those little 95grain lead bullets work just fine.
    lee makes a little mould for about 15 bucks. I have also used a 9mm 124grain cast lead bullet in the .380 in a keltec and it also worked.

    I discovered that, Ron. I did wind up loading about 6 boxes last year and they were no problem after figuring out the best die adjustment.The little stingers work nicely in the .38 Special, (and probably the 9 m/m) as well as the .380, depending on how they are sized, and would probably do okay in the .357, but I dont know. At any rate, I was in the Dicks Sporting Goods store today and out of curiosity asked about .380 ammo. As it happened, they were out of stock, but their current price for 50 was 18. bux, not so much different than the 14. something I paid over a year ago.
