Re: Want to get into reloading and have a few stupid questions
Kits work to get you started and give you a base reference for what you'd like to have. It gets addictive. I had the same thoughts you do about saving money, not a chance, you do shoot more though, for what you would've spent on factory ammo. The biggest benefit, is taloring loads to your rifles, factory can almost never do that.
I'd keep my eye in the classifieds, where some widow is selling of her husbands loading bench, if you can wait.
