    Buying 20 rounds of x vs. making 20 rounds of y=?

    OK…. if all you need are 20 rounds then reloading is not for you. But since I shoot a Heck of a lot, then let me break it down for you. I cast my own and the cost per shot is about .07 cents each. Factory ammo costs .37 cents each and up per shot. You do the math and see what you come up with…..

      Jim, these are really great videos. I’ve enver done any hand loading, but these vids have me thinking about it.

      I don’t know whether to thank you or curse you! 🙂

    I don’t think handloading is for me. It appears to require more tools than I have. Unless I could make it work with a pair of pliers, a hammer, a set of jewelers screwdrivers and a power drill?

      Using a lee loader you could do it all for $50 while sitting on your couch. That includes powder, primer, and bullets.

      And it is actually made for only cranking out 20 or so bullets at a time.

      …Don’t laugh about the simplicity of a lee loader either. At one time there were a couple of world record shots held with ammo loaded by them.
