Long story short, I have THOUSANDS of 40 S&W brass cases. I'm thinking about making a large run of 40 cal ammo. The more I load, the cheaper it gets. This would be with mixed head stamp 40 S&W brass (from a local law enforcement range, mainly Speer and Win cases), Alliant pistol powder, CCI #500 pistol primers. The components would be top notch components, not the cheap foreign stuff. If I put together a group buy on 40 S&W ammo, what bullet would be the best bullet for this ammo run? Or multiple options? How is the pricing point? Here are a few options and in-the-ballpark pricing. Let me know what you think on the pricing, and what other options you might like to see.

You can pre-order this ammo HERE
180 grain Speer UHP (Gold Dot)- $37 per 100
I will load this bullet below as my initial run. I will make 5700 rounds with this bullet. Please place order on-line for shipment. (PM me for local pick-up)
Ammo should be produced around Sept 22nd, and shipped as soon as they are made.


160 grain Copper plated- ~$31 per 100
165 grain FMJ- ~$34 per 100
180 grain FMJ- ~34 per 100
180 grain Speer UHP (Gold Dot)- $37 per 100
155 or 180 grain Hornady XTP- ~$44 per 100 rounds

The copper plated bullets have issues stabilizing out of the polygonal rifling. So if your pistol has this rifling, the copper plated bullets are no bueno (like a Glock). Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Right now I'm looking into doing this. Let me know if this is something that is priced right for the ammo and materials used. Thanks!

So, the HP bullets would be more what everyone wants, then? I just checked availability, and I can get the Speer Gold Dot bullet (UHP) for the same price. Would the Gold Dot work for the JHP? It is Speer's #4406 bullet, 180 grain UHP, which is the same bullet marketed as their Gold Dot in the factory ammo. They label it UHP for reloaders and ammo mfg.

Yes, I ship. I ship most of my ammo. If you want me to ship them, go to this link below and order them through my website. It will be easiest to ship them through here. Thanks, guys!
