I'm working from home now, and the reloading bench is my new office (small house, no basement). Good thing all of my brass is full right now. I ordered 2000 bullets from Roze a week ago before they get behind, not in any hurry. I'm not going to get caught short ever again, if I can help it. The Mrs. once asked (after the Obama crunch), "Don't we have enough powder yet?" She was probably right to point that out.

Good job, I loaded 5-6,000 of 9 and 45 before switching over to prepping brass for rifle, if ranges dont open up again soon for me to test out my rifle loads then I am going to be back to pistol loads. May end up loading up every piece of brass I have if this virus goes on long enough!

I've loaded up 2000 rounds of 45, 500 of 357, 600 of 308, 600 of 30-06, 1000 of 223, and 1000 of 10mm. Not to mention the thousands of brass i've prepped. And all on a single stage press. I'm going to run out of components soon.

Thanks @GaCop!....assuming you are in the same field of work as I....so stay safe out there brother!
Retired from LE back in 2008 after I got back from working as a contractor in Kandahar Afghanistan. Plenty of time to reload and shoot now along with building tactical bolt action rifles.

@Mikey421....depends....these are my top favorites:

- JACKETED - I get "ZERO" brand bullets from www.rozedist.com for about $125USD per 1,000

- COPPER PLATED - I get "Berry's" brand from www.powdervalleyinc.com for about $105USD per 1,000

- COATED LEAD - I get "SNS Casting" brand from www.snscasting.com for about $90USD per 1,000 or "IBEJIHEADS" brand from www.ibejiheads.com for about $104USD per 1,000

Primers and Powder I usually get from Powder Valley Inc (they seem to have best prices and nominal shipping fees) and the brass I've accumulated free over the years from LE ranges i've been on as well as leftovers from factory stuff I've shot....

I finished a case (2020) .45 230g Blue Bullets yesterday. Prior to that run finished a case of 9mm 125g Blue Bullets. I am thankful for the Inline Fabrication Ergo handle on my 550B.

Those rates are about half what I personally have paid for the same. I used to get 500 ct Berry’s 230gr plated .45 for $85.00CAD, and 9mm 1000 ct 124gr for $135.00CAD. Must be nice to live where the air doesn’t hurt your face six out of twelve months and everything is way less expensive.
