Own several guns, but not much more than a shooter. I decided to start reloading and found your sight while doing some research. Seems like a good group of people, so I thought I would join.

what's up!

I am also in the local area. I've always wanted to get into reloading myself but realized that per 1000 rounds, I wouldn't be saving THAT much money, maybe $100? and that's just the cost for materials in the ammo, and does not account for the equipment at all, or the time it would take to clean, prep and actually reload 1000 rounds. Maybe as my kids get older I'll have more time to sit around and press out the ammo

I just traded away a bunch of brass for some .223 ammo that was "factory reloaded"

However, I do like the idea of tailoring custom loads and may still look at reloading sometime down the line.

Thanks. Not sure if you know where London is, but that's where I live. Not really getting into it to save money. Just looking for something to do. Buddy gave me a press so I just had to order everything else. We'll see!

I do! you're about an hour south of me. Funny story about London...

one day I come home to find a package on my front porch from Fed-Ex. looked at it and realized it wasn't my name on the box. looked closer, thought it was my neighbors. Nope, house number isn't anywhere near mine... not even the same street name!

Then I saw the city...it was supposed to be delivered to a house in London! :eek:
