Gunslinger Ammunition

Sczarni 4/5

Hi everyone,

I am making a new character for PFS play and I decided to go with a gunslinger, but I am having trouble understanding which "discount" do gunslingers gain when buying ammunition.

This is what I found at Additional resources page:

From Additional Resources wrote:
Gunsmithing does not grant the ability to craft firearms, ammunition, or black powder. Rather, it allows the purchase of bullets, pellets, black powder, and alchemical cartridges (with 1 rank in Craft [alchemy]) at the listed reduced price, but does not grant a discount on the purchase of any firearm. Resold items gained through this feat are worth half the actual cost paid, not half the regular market value for the item.

And this is only "discount" mentioned in Gunsmithing Feat:

From Gunsmithing Feat wrote:
Crafting Ammunition: You can craft bullets, pellets, and black powder for a cost in raw materials equal to 10% of the price. If you have at least 1 rank in Craft (alchemy), you can craft alchemical cartridges for a cost in raw materials equal to half the price of the cartridge. At your GM’s discretion, you can craft metal cartridges for a cost in raw materials equal to half the cost of the cartridge. Crafting bullets, black powder, or cartridges takes 1 day of work for every 1,000 gp of ammunition (minimum 1 day).

So if I understood it right, I am buying bullets, pellets and black powder at 10% of price only always and alchemical cartridges for 50% of price?

Thanks for respones,

You are understanding it correctly.

Nefreet, I haven't said thank you yet for that breakdown of costs, but thank you! It's a great help for us gunslingers out there.
