Why do you handload?

What's the primary reason why you handload?

Mostly I do because I have to or it won't go bang.;) For the others I do it for the accuracy as well as I just like controlling everything I can, as precisely as I can.

You only allowed us to vote for one but I have mutliple reasons but could only vote for the Wildcat choise.

It's tough to only vote for one of those. I chose accuracy, I guess that is always my main goal. I do also really enjoy it as a hobby as well, measuring, tweaking etc while trying to get the most out of a gun. The cost savings isn't too bad either when you see some boxes of 20 rounds going for $50 and up.

I enjoy taking animals with a round I've put together as well as it is cheaper and I can shoot more often.

I only do it so that I can have the most accurate and precise fitting ammo for my gun.I can't say I 'enjoy' the extra work of achieving this,but I do it.
But the biggest reason is functionallity.I know that every round will function flawlessly in my rifles.
I know if I want it done right,I have to do it myself.

You left off my choice:

"I'm ADDICTED"

Handloading is more addictive than crack. Once you get started you're hooked for life.
