Well, at least 9mm is about the cheapest ammo you can get, aside from .22.

Be a pure hoot with 3f.  I gotta save up some Box Tops U-Betcha.

9MM with 3f? Pretty much the same as a .38 short Colt. Probably can't get over 10 gr in there.

Y'know, I'd seriously go with 10 folks at $450 to get one of these for the organization.  I could see hauling it around to the different musters.  I nominate Jerry to keep track of volunteers . . .

I am seriously in!  Smokeless only, though.

You can get 12grs. of 3Fg in a .380 case. I'm using that charge in the new Cimarron  1862 Pocket Police conversion. 'Spect you might get 15 or 16grs. in a 9mm case.

You will have no problem getting people wanting to shoot a Gatling Gun, however, getting them to train as a gun crew, and or, helping with cleaning, maintaining or moving/transporting the gun.... to various events?
Forget it!
I know because I have been there and done that. Just a thought.
My best,

But you have never been to a Muster, never seen an event with so many willing hands.

Yep always get help when I pull into Pitspitr's for the Grand Muster.  Cleaning, well, there could be, but, however usually by myself and the wife helping before I return it.  Got a pretty good system involving the box and 4 2x4s.

My son wants in.  How many is that?  Gatlings are easy to clean, especially if limited to steel case smokeless.
