I get free ammo from my garage.

My reloading habit can get expensive when it comes time to stock up...

I'm going to purchase a dillon 650 today and slowly build a setup and start reloading. Lucky for me there is a huge metro police presence and I can get locally once fired brass in large quantities if I really start liking reloading. Worse case I reload the 600-1000 rounds a month I shoot on my days off. Best case I start a reloading business on my spare time?

Don't you have to be licensed or something to manufacture ammunition for sale?

You need a commercial reloading FFL, and DAMN GOOD LIABILITY INSURANCE

Make sure that you get an FFL, and are in full compliance. I lost mine years ago when Clinton et al decided that since my home based business was in an area zoned as general housing and business I didn't qualify.

Well I bought my dillon and today went and got 1000 223 and 3500 9mm once fired federal brass for $220 total. Waiting on few other things in the mail and I can start reloading. The amount I shoot it just makes sense to make my own ammo.

Have you found any .223 bullets online for a decent price?

An exert from Freedoms home page, also seen at several other manufacturers:
Important Notice: There is currently a severe component shortage in the Ammunition Industry which prevents us from completely filling all orders at this time.

Therefore, due to circumstances beyond our control, we may modify your order and REMOVE / CANCEL the product(s) from your order which cannot be shipped within a reasonable timeframe. This means you may only receive part of your order, in which case, the payment amount we process to your Credit Card will be reduced to reflect the changes that we are forced to make to your order.

I was afraid of that when a couple of my favorite sites to order were bone dry.
