Just a thought, IMHO!
    As far as I know, any manufacturer will void your warranty if using reloads and the ammo creates the problem. I've never heard of one voiding the warranty when the gun just broke and ammunition wasn't a contributing part of the problem.

    Reloading is determined by how much you shoot. I've been reloading for 30+ years and have never had one of my reloads damage a gun. In that time, I've saved enough money by reloading to buy probably 20 new guns. I can load 40 S&W with jacketed hollow points for right at $7.50/50 compared to $18.00/50 for the least expensive HP stuff ATG offers. That's a savings of $10.50/50 or $210.00/1000. If I shoot 1000 rounds per month, I could buy a new gun every 3 months from the savings. Sounds like a fair trade for losing the warranty to me. Understand though, I'm talking about using my own reloads, not buying reloads from a commercial reloader.

    Clean, brass case, and accurate.

    range ammo shouldn't be very expensive for something quality


    S&B is the practice brand for me! Centerfire Systems ALWAYS has plenty of it, usually on sale!

    Hi Jeff,
    That's what I would do if you want to stock up on spare ammo. Here in Vegas we have 3-4 Wally Worlds that are open 24/7. I go to these stores late night and buy when most of the population is sleeping. It does affect the speed the 9mm disappears.
