easily. especially if you use lead bullets. initial cost of the gear and cases will be a bit more but after a few runs of 500 rounds it all pays for itself and you start paying less.
i dont think of it as saving anything since your spending money, what you ARE doing is shooting more for the same expenditure.
if your reloading to just stockpile for shtf your not really saving anything unless you have a free or nearly free source of brass.
reloading opens doors on cartridges and firearms that are crazy expensive to buy off the shelf. plus its a great secondary hobby as it really is fun.
