Re: Why do you reload cartridges?

I started for accuracy and price.

now I have a 6.5-284 and its a necessity.

I do enjoy it but if i could find reasonably priced .223 rounds that shot good with a ballistic tip I would jump in a heart beat.

    Because I'm married. Just kidding, mainly for accuracy and the do-it-your-selfer in
    me.

    In the beginning it was to get ammo. When I was 16 I had family buy some brass, primers, powder, and bullets so I could make my own cartridges. I have been reloading as long as I have been shooting centerfires.

    I always liked the custom part that allowed one to choose whatever components they wanted. To me custom is better than factory.

    Re: Why do you reload cartridges?

    I started reloading when I got into the accuracy of what I was shooting at the age of 17. Started with an RCBS Master Reloading Kit and I'm still using the same equipment over 20 years later. I reload because I find it much easier when getting into a new caliber to just order one or two hundred cases and a set of dies as I have tons of bullets to choose from and just about any powder I would need. I like odd chamberings...something a little different and reloading is the only option for me...I haven't bought factory ammo with the exception of pistol and rimfire ammo for the last 20+ years.

    Re: Why do you reload cartridges?

    I started reloading ammo for my 270 in 1953 . As a teenager I had very little money so that I could shoot more I started reloading. I purchased 4895 and 4831 powder for $0.25 per pound , the Hornady 100 and 130 bullets were a bit over three $ per 100. I shot prairie dogs with the 100 Gr bullets and found out that to hit them at 300 yards I need to develope accurate reloads for my 270. I started reading about the bench rest and 1000 yard shooter and how they would reload their target ammo and how to tune up bolt action rifles. As I got older I got better quaity reloading equipment, my first press was a Lymon Tru Line Jr. I still can recall when and where I shot my first one inch five shot 100 yard and 1/2 inch group. Most all of my shooting now is at prairie dogs. The bullets shot from my 17 Fireball,17 Rem, 204 Ruger,221 Fireball, 222 Rem, 223 Rem, 22-250 Rem, 220 Swift, and 243 Win are the best I can make.--I dont like missing--
