    I have some 200 bullets that would like loaded.

    9mm hornady 147 gr hp/xtp bullets only.

    how much for the loading. you supply, brass case, primer, powder ect and labor.:thumbup: would like price on new brass vs once fired.

    got them as a gift but not set up for loading them.

    thanks!

    I would suggest selling the bullets and buying factory loaded ammo.
    Shooting ammo loaded by someone you don't know is a roll of the dice and not worth any few dollars you might save.
    YMMV
    just sayin'

    +1. Sell the bullets.

    UNLESS you know someone that reloads, and is willing to show you
    how. Their equipment, your labor, and you get at least a start at a
    new skill.

    FWIW, If someone is loading ammo for profit, legally they must have
    a 06 FFL, be registered with ITAR, and pay a 11% tax on all ammo loaded
    unless it's in customer supplied cases.

    I suggest you contact a professional commercial manufacturer. There are a number of them out there that will do custom loads. They will pay the excise, and it will be done in a licensed facility, and more importantly they will have insurance that will cover damage if the ammunition is loaded incorrectly.

    If you are really interested, contact me in a PM and I will forward you information of a few manufacturers I know.
