Reloading 9mm

Post by pilotstelios on Fri Oct 07, 2011 6:20 am

Hello, to this sites funs!!!

I live in Greece/Athens, i am a Lt.Col. pilot officer and i got an issue! I have a CCW permit for my XDM 9mm handgun but since the bullets became these days crazy expensive (25 euros/50round, 9 mm/115 gr RN) , i made my decision to start reloading.The problem is, i can't find primers and powder for that....everything else i can get it one way or another.Due the financiall problems we have here in Greece, the bullets cost will get higher.So,reloading is the best way to solve my problem, i think.Can anyone help me out?I'd appreciate, a lot!!!
THANK YOU.
LT.COL. Stelios Papotis.

I don't know how to hook you up in Europe but here are a couple of people who may. wiederladertv,,fusil56300 Wiederladertv is from Germany and Fusil is from France. Both reload and I would imagine they may know where you can find primers and powder ... By the Way Welcome to the Site!!!!

i believe he might be looking for some tricks or secrets for powder and primers. I am not really sure what kind of info to give. Not sure what ammo you might get for cheap that you could use the powder from to load with.

Since in Europe 9mm (especially 9x21) is very popular I think you'll not have problems in finding both cheap or HQ powder and primers (small pistol).
I, in Italy, usually use:
- cheap reloading:
- powder cheddite granular s fine ( €22/Kg)
- fiocchi primers (€ 20/1500units)
- Lead round nose bullets Romana Metalli (€ 35/1000units)
- Medium cost reloading (what I use for Production):
- powder Nobel Sport GM 3 (€40/Kg)
- CCI primers (€25/1000units)
- Lead Round Nose bullets Target (€ 38/1000units)
- High cost reloading (good for IPSC OPEN or defence reloading):
- powder Vihtavuori N320 or N340 (€ 80/Kg)
- CCI primers (€25/1000units)
- FMJ TC bullets (€60/1000units)

I use a Lee pro 1000 press, very cheap (€180), with very good results (max 0,1% error); but "professional" reloaders usually prefer and suggest Dillon's.
A Dillon 650XL is around €700 but I think you can find a used one.

Good reload.
