Might want to keep an eye on Hornady in the coming year, enough pressure and they might supply 5.45 brass...
I can't imagine the market for virgin 5.45 brass is there. Even after almost doubling in price in the last few years, 5.45 is still only .16 per round. The numbers just aren't there.
Sure, you can reload for your 5.45, but it will be like swimming upstream.
And at the end of the day, why? The appeal for 5.45, esp in ARs, is cheap surplus ammo. Not its reloadability. When I go to the trouble to reload for an AR, it sure isn't 5.45
