Reloading is an investment, a hobby, and an art.
I agree, i just dont think its worth the time and effort to reload ammo. especially that i have a glock and recommend not to.
Once you've reloaded enough ammo to pay for your equipment you're on your way
. I typically reload 38 Specials, 357 magnum, 44 Special, and 44 Magnum.
Material wise, a 44 Magnum cartridge using a Hornaday 240 grain JHP-XTP bullet, H110 powder, and a CCI Magnum primer costs about .27 per round. A factory load of similar charactaristics is about 75 cents to about 1.00 per round. That's a big difference.
The SAVINGS is substancial for me, especially because I shoot a lot. BUT, you'll notice I don't bother with 380, 9mm, 10mm, 40 S&W, and 45ACP. Their just isn't enough savings for me to justify reloading these "autoloader" calibers. This may change though, with the receint election.
Make no mistake, reloading is getting expensive too. The cost of supplies has SKYROCKETED.
