I have a Dillon 650, but don't see buying 380 dies to roll 380 rnds at this point. Maybe 9mm dies would work ?

I am wondering about good, clean practice ammo. I have seen steel cased Wolf(e) ammo at Widners pretty cheap. I have not bought via the web in a while.

What kind of ammo and where to buy is the question ...

Thanks ...

I purchased a couple of cases of Aquilla 380 from ammunition to go (ammunitiontogo.com) back before prices went through the roof. It is boxer primed and reloadable. I also reload 380 using the Dillon 650 and you need 380 dies and shell plate for the 650. although I have shot wolf 380 through my LCP, I would break it in using brass cased ammo and then try the steel case ammo. Recommend you start reloading, it will pay for itself in no time flat considering the cost of a box of 380 ammo these days.

Thanks for the quick response ...

Is once fired brass avail, or is this too rare a caliber ?

I did this with .223 and 9mm and it worked out way cheaper than new, but that was a long time ago. Things have changed I am sure.

My 650 was before the auto bullet option, but its still was pretty fast ... good therapy, but i hate picking up the brass ... too old and fat. Some ranges don't let you anyway I hear.

Not sure I will fire much 380 once the novelty wears off, so I think good new ammo is the hot set up.

You can find once fired brass for the 380 pretty consistently over on the classified sections of "The Firing Line" or "The High Road". It typically runs about $30 or so for 500.
