I just bought an Charter Bulldog and after paying almost a buck per round for target ammo I have decided to start reloading 44 spl. With the cost of shells, primers and bullets I figure the first run with these shells will cost .35 per round. OOPS! Forgot to add powder costs so it might be a few cents more total cost. IMO That still is kind of high but it sure is a heck of lot cheaper than even bulk ammo. I am going to use cowboy 180 gr lead rounded with flat tops. Probably CCI large primers if I can't find Winchester #68. Clays powder and Starline brass. I still have to buy the bullets from RimRock bullets $42 per 500. I am going to buy another turret plate and die set for the 44 set up. I bought Hornady critical defense 165 gr for carry rounds. They are supposedly good to go for SD ammo. This less than expensive Bulldog sure is causing me to spend a bunch more money. I also ordered a holster and Pachmeyer gripper grips for it. Maybe the grips will make it even more fun to shoot.
