Start looking and picking out know I have been buying tools and supplies over the past year little bit at a time. Reloading is fun and keeps me busy but it is very expensive to get started. As go with all things in life you get what you pay for.

Yes i will. My baby boy consumed all my time already. Once we found our new home, i'd definitely start reloading.

Congrats on entering the ranks of reloaders. I gotta warn ya though, it can be very addictive. You can spend as much time and money as you have available reloading. It will never get old. There will always be new loads to try.

I enjoy reloading as much as shooting.... Maybe more!

+1 on that.. I have started to enjoy reloading as much or more than shooting itself. I can do it at home after work and after dark. Plus its good time to relax and wind down, sit in front of the press and crank out fresh ammo

Been reloading for almost 12 years now and am just now getting inrto casting my own bullets.. nothing to be scared about but safety and keeping focused is key. At the orientation session at my new gun club, the fella showed us the results of a double charged 44 mag round. Fella had gotten distracted, through a double charge in a case and when he shot it at the range, it blew his pistol apart putting a nice hole in the tin roofing of the pistol station above where the fella was. He was lucky not to have been injured but it just proves you gotta be aware at all times what you're doing...

I was a little worried about that when I decided to start reloading a few months ago, but just the opposite happened. I find myself just wishing I had more time to spend loading. It's therapeutic in a weird way. The process is as much fun as the end result. I think maybe it has something to do with knowing that if you get it right you'll have super accurate rounds. And if you get it wrong... well let's not go there.
