Gunslinger Cartridge Ammo in PFS

I have heard, but can't seem to find this written down. But I am also short on sleep, and my search-fu is weak.

Can my gunslinger/alchemist use craft alchemy to make his own alchemical ammo cartridges in PFS to save on the relatively huge cost/shot? I have been told that he can craft them for half the cost, but can't find it.

Perfect. Thanks!

I was told to also ask about how the spell Abundant Ammunition was changed for gunslingers in PFS.

And to ask if Air Bubble can be cast on the pistol so it functions underwater.

I don't think air bubble would work but there is a magic item. Believe is call Dry Shot Powder horn.

Air bubble works on firearms. The spell description contains the details.

A firearm within an air bubble can be loaded—assuming the black powder comes from a powder horn, a cartridge, or some other airtight protective device—and fired. When shooting such a firearm underwater, the shot still takes the standard –2 penalty on attack rolls for every 5 feet of water the bullet passes through, in addition to normal penalties due to range. If a firearm within the air bubble explodes, the explosion occurs normally.

My friend said PFS had changed the rules for Air Bubble and Abundant Ammunition. Is that not true?

Abundant Ammunition got a change as part of the third printing of Ultimate Combat.

From Errata:
Page 222—In the Abundant Ammunition spell, in the parenthetical in the first sentence, after “shuriken” add “, but not special materials, alchemical attributes, or nonmagical treatments on the ammunition”.

Air Bubble also got a change, but only to add a descriptor. There are no PFS specific changes for either spell that I can find.

Ok, thanks guys!
