I am trying to decide whether or not reloading would be a justifiable expenditure for me. I know nothing about reloading, and if it turns out that it would be financially beneficial I will definitely buy several books and do much more research before ever attempting to reload. That said, I would like your input on a couple of questions. This will help me crunch the numbers to see if reloading will be feasible for me before I go any farther. 1) Is a budget number of $750 dollars for beginners equipment reasonable? 2) What would be a good average cost for the components of a 9mm target round with salvaged brass? 3) What would be a good average cost for the components of a .45ACP target round with salvaged brass? 4) What % of failures should a novice reloader expect? I realize that costs vary for each load, just looking for an average approximate cost for a target round with salvaged brass for each of the listed calibers. I tried to figure it out on my own, but there were too many variables I did not understand. Thanks in advance.
