I found these in Academy Sports yesterday. They're $19 for a box of 20 but I've never seen a case like this.
Same here. Only way I can see that they could be manufactured for less is the use of less expensive steel (case wall) & aluminum (case head) vs. the more costly brass, which is probably getting more scarce. Otherwise, AFAIC, they're a waste of money for those of us that do our own reloading.Been out for a couple years. Shell Shock Technologies makes them. From what I've read, they function just like and 9mm brass but special dies are needed to reload them (a "normal" sizing/decapping will push the case apart). I don't see how a 2 piece part can be made cheaper then a single piece, two pieces made/machined separately and then assembled vs a single part run theough a few machines.
