Re: Why do you reload cartridges?
For me, I like the technical side of it. I'm just an industrial mechanic not an engineer but I like measuring cases, bullets, primer pockets, trickling my powders, headspace, shoulder setback, comparing this-to-this and that-to-that. I'm not anal, I just enjoy seeing how much accuracy I can squeeze out of my guns. It's also an enjoyable passtime to reload and to shoot.
I'm fortunate that Lisa likes to watch me reload and loves to go shooting with me. We no longer have kids at home, (we're 50) so this is how we spend our time and money.
It does save money to reload....bwwwaaahhhaaaa...sorry I couldn't keep a straight face. I burn up WAY more money than I save. Plus, I'm always buying more and better reloading stuff. But I'm one hell of a lot better shot than if I didn't reload that's for sure!
