I can get 100 12g for 21$
And 50 9mm for 15$
What kind of cost are along with reloading
There are a lot of factors you need to consider to determine if reloading is a viable source of ammunition for you. Consider these:
1. How much ammo do you use in a week, month or year?
2. What is the total cost to buy this amount of ammunition for a week, a month, and a year?
3. How much time can you afford to spend for preparation and loading?
4. Compare the total amount of cost to purchase your ammunition for a year to the total cost to buy a press, dies, scale, bullets, brass, primers and powder.
Hope this helps. I know I left something out, can anyone else jump in?
Oh, I forgot.. Shotgun will require a separate press, powder, primers and hulls and other things separate from pistol or rifle.
