Ok, please excuse the naiveness here, but I was wondering at what point in my shooting hobby does it become beneficial to start reloading as compared to store bought ammo? Examples. I can buy 30-06 ammo at Walmart right now for $16 a box for Remington Core Lokt 180 gr and doing some simple figures looking at bulk reloading supplies it would cost me about $14 a box of 20 to reload my own. This does not factor in the cost of purchasing the reloading equipment. I currently reload shotshell using a Mec jr that was given to me 20 years ago by my father and I'm still only saving about $1 per box of 20 shotshells ($4.97 a box of 7 1/8 trap loads at Walmart). Again, please excuse my being a rookie at reloading, I just would love to hear all the different side here. Thank you, Mike.
