Default Reloading

I started in 1977 and have loaded since then. Now up to 20+ metallic cartridges and four gauges of shotguns.
I likely have not saved money, but I shot a lot more for the same amount.
My press, scales, trimmers and dies are long paid for.
And I really enjoy reloading.

I got my wife interested in shooting a few years ago and it turned out to be an easy sell to her about reloading. Long run saving a bit of money and short term lots more range time. Currently we are acquiring our equipment a bit at a time. Got a single stage press from an uncle years ago so that helped with the startup cost. It's a Pacific Super Deluxe, old as dirt but it works. Kinda like me, lol. Figure single stage is a good starting point until I can get a progressive. Looking at doing 9mm and 45 for starters. Thanks for all the great info and I look forward to hearing more from everyone here.

Default A couple of points....

Common pistol ammo is fairly(?) cheap. Get off the common path and the price goes up extraordinarily quick.

Reloading rifle bullets can save all kinds of money. Especially if you don't need expensive hunting bullets.....

Now, the really important reasons:

Stock up on components and be much more shortage resistant. You can take advantage of deals over time.

You can make ANYTHING you want. From bunnie poots to barn burners in any style of bullet.

It's interesting and FUN!
