reloading is but a step down the dark side, brother...casting bullets really saves $$$, but only if you have a decent supply of lead available. i consider my time free because i enjoy the process of turning scrap into usable material that works so well for me.
even my rifles, or should i say especially my rifles, benefit from casting. 100 yd accuracy is better than i can shoot off-hand. velocities are about 1800 fps, so i get a bit of "thump" without any outright pain...in my shoulder or pocketbook.
ignorance is fixable, stupidity is forever...
