    I spend a lot on guns and ammo, but I don't think I spend as much on guns and ammo as my neighbors spend on boats

    Should be something similar for the shooting sports!

    I save tons of money reloading. However, it takes kilotons of money to do it.

    Reloading is a pends on type of thing, if you’re shooting 44Spl, 44Mag or 45LC you can reload generally for ˝ the cost of factory loads. if you’re an oddball like me and like to shoot obscure ammo like 218 Bee, 25-20, 32-20, 256 Win Mag, 32S&W and others sometimes reloading is the only way to have a supply. You can tailor loads for better accuracy, I have Parker Hale in 30/06 that with factory ammo would only shoot 2-2 ˝ inch groups at 100 yards but with some careful load I could shrink the groups to 3/8-1/2 inch at 100 yards.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
    "Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Saving money reloading....

    That's what I told my self



    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    I save plenty of money reloading. Even 9mm is half the cost of what I would be buying it for.

    You can reload for half the price - so you can shoot twice as much..........

    It's like making your own clothes. Really.

    I don’t think I can make better clothes than clothing companies though. I know I can make better ammo than the manufacturers.

    I keep telling myself the thousands spent on reloading equipment is worth it. I cant see myself buying a 70 dollar box of 358 Norma Magum ammo.

    Reloading doesn't result in a net savings, we just get to shoot more.

    When you look at the cost of 357 and 44 magnum, if you want to shoot in volume, reloading is a must. Same with my 308 and 556 non fmj. I just wont pay a buck a round or more when I can load an equivalent premium round for less than half that.

    When I compare what I spend on shooting to what my neighbor spends on his $70K ski boat, I just smile. When my wife compares what I spend on shooting these days compared to what I used to spend on cars, she just smiles.

    I see it the way Granny stated it.
    Also there is an investment in time. Luckily for me, I am very cheap labor so it pays off.

    I enjoy shooting odd and old calibers. And I can reload them for about what 9mm costs!DR
