No different than loading for most magnums. You use more powder with the big magnums and just depends on what bullet you want to use, but it is a lot cheaper than buying ammo. If you are worried about the cost of reloading the 8mm Rem Mag you don't need to buy that 800.00 rifle. If you can afford the rifle you can afford the initial outlay for reloading. Don't worry about the cost if you want an 8mm Rem mag. You buy a sports car the insurance is more and when you buy a magnum, ammo and loading your own is more than standard rounds.
I know one thing, you will get a kick out shooting the Big 8 and it is a deadly cartridge on game, up close or far off. Let me know if you get it.
