Makarov Reloading

Picked up a Case Trimmer and trimmed 250 luger cases down to Makorov. Color coded the base of the cases to prevent mixing.

Just waiting on box BERRY 9x18 MAKAROV (.364) 95gr RN Bullets and dies that are on order. Projecting about 50% savings or more after recovering cost of dies, bullets, primers and powder. Plan on a Win231 load.

Best local cost I could find for complete factory rounds was $13-16 a box of 50. I am looking for $5-6 for my reloads.

I suggest you order the correct diameter bullets. 9x18 ultra uses .355 bullets.
9x18 Makorov uses .363 diameter bullets. I hope you are nowhere near me when you
are shooting these. You are playing with fire.

Why not just use the Hornady hollowpoints?

Finally got to the range today to test the trimmed luger rounds. Worked like a charm. Went bang and did some nice groups Will Begin the mass production now.

I don't know how many of those cases you trimmed, but it sure gets to be tedious after the first two or three hundred, doesn't it? I'm still trying to find time to try out the new 3-jaw case holder that I bought.

Cheers!

Your right there. I have a hand lathe. the motorized ones are to much $$. Waiting for an auction score or build a drill unit over the winter. Just being cheap. I have hundreds and hundreds of luger to use.

mstraus - you ought to pick yourself up a Lee bullet casting mold for the 9mm Makarov!



You could be in Mak heaven with all the rounds you can churn out for super cheap! Beats having to keep buying bullets!

6-cavity Makarov mold is better than the 2-banger
