    Roughly the cost of equipment to reload 9mm ammo. Not powder, primers, bullets or casings, just the equipment to get started. Thanks.

    It all depends if you want a mild or wild set up. Buy once, cry once get a Dillon. If you dont like it, they hold their value very good unlike other presses.

    Plenty of good used tooling available ---
    More money makes reloading quicker and perhaps easier but not better --

    This is as cheap as you can get. https://www.amazon.com/LEE-PRECISIO...=lee+classic+loader+9mm&qid=1580134477&sr=8-1

    You will save anywhere from $2 to $3 per box of 50rds buying bulk consumables, if you do not count your time into the equation. More so if your goal is to develop premium SD ammo that can go as high as $1 per cartridge retail.

    9mm his a high volume round, meaning you can dump a mag at the range in less than 5 seconds. Get a progressive press.

    Dillon best money you’ll ever spend! I load on a 550 that I’ve had for 34 years or so!
