I havent bought ammo in a while (I am the asshole who picks up your brass at the range before it hits the ground) but academy always seems to have good prices.

Also, gun shows. There is one the weekend after thanksgiving I believe, and prices are always good there.

Tumbling, sizing, expanding, trimming, and loading it

But really I just got into reloading a few months ago and it has been fun learning all about it. 90% of what I shoot is 45acp, thd rest is collected for the hell of it.
