I have always been interested in things that go boom. My pop started me out as young as I can remember helping him load up his bullets, then heading out to the range to try them out, I guess I never knew better. We always picked up at least two boxes of factory ammo for most new rifles we got, simply for comparrison, but that was about it for factory loads.
I like a challenge, and as Roy mentioned about doing it your self, just something else I learned growing up. I realize that there are limits to my abilities in many areas, but in reloading I feel I have excelled. The biggest reason I load now days is economy, I simply hate to pay what the stores want for a box of shells. Heck I even hate to pay what they want for just a box of bullets anymore, and am glad I picked up bulk quantities when I found something I liked. I do however still pick up factory ammo for a couple of rifles simply due to the fact that those particular arms shoot it so wonderfully, I just haven't even bothered to work up loads for them.
