You need to add another option to the poll: "All of the above!"

    Need a D. all of the above slot up there! Tough call I had to say cost but while cost makes me smile a bit more than factory does, I also get more accurate ammo with the components that work best in my gun for my shooting situation, which in turn allows me to practice more, and makes my practice time more productive. Good poll.

    Some one posted that if they wanted it done right they had to do it them selves.

    Hmmmmm, it turns out I felt that way but since starting the LRH quest and hanging out here, I found out that I wasn't as experienced as I thought I was.

    After two years on the quest now I am as good a I think I am, AND I realize that I don't think I'm nearly as proficient as I should be.

    I voted for accuracy, but accuracy and consistency @ 100-200 yds sure defined differently when the extra zero is added.;)

    That's a good question ( I ask myself that with a few explitives when I'm having trouble with getting a load to shoot good ;)). I don't yet have a wildcat, but I enjoy shooting, I enjoy tweaking the loads and I get a real sense of accomlishment when my loads and recipies do well. I also like the idea of premium grade bullets for a lower cost ---- If you don't count time or equipment as a cost!!!!

    Started reloading when the price of a box of 20 30-06 went up to $4.50.

    I started handloading due to the ammo expense involved in pistol matches. Then when my interest switched to centerfire rifles, I load to get the most out of my rifles, as well as the better selection of bullets and your ablity to adjust the velocity to my needs. And the big one..... COST!
