Re: cost per reload
This is just my opinion, but here is how I see it.
Years ago, you had to reload to get good accurate ammo. Nowadays you can get some really good factory stuff, but you still can't tune it to your rifle if you want the absolute best performance. If you're going into it strictly to save money on the 3 or 5 boxes of shells you shoot a year, save your money, it's not worth it. If you're going into it because you want the best performance from your rifle and the therapy that goes along with processing your own ammo, then go for it. It's a wonderful hobby to take up. The savings in this case is realized because you are shooting much more.
