Re: Is it to late for me o start reloading ?
When reloading I don't even include the brass as an expense, b/c I had been saving my brass for years and years before I ever started reloading. So most of it was "free" brass that came from my factory loads I've shot. I've also picked up a ton of brass in all different calibers at the ranges over the last 6 months. Granted, most of it is useless to me, other than the .223/5.56 brass, but occasionally I find some Fed .308, or Fed or Win Nickle 7mm RemMag. I never find STW brass or .257 Wby brass, so when I start getting low, I go shoot a box of factory ammo to fire-form it.
However, STW and .257 Wby ammo is about $4.50 a round if you find it in the store around here....Minus brass, it costs me right at $0.85 per round to reload for it. You do the math, but to me it is the best thing I've ever done for my shooting and trigger time. I can get almost 5 shots for the commercial price of 1.
