I understand what you're saying, but I won't ever do enough shooting to justify reloading.@Fallsrider
I’ve learned more by CWO reloading at home than I’ve learned in over 35+ years of shooting.
Just started making my own AR this past Sunday, learned a lot on the way the gun works.
What I’m suggesting and have learned, is that if you want to learn a lot then make all this stuff at home. If you put it together yourself, guns and ammo, I now believe this is the fastest way to learn.
I did partially assemble an AR recently. I bought it as a kit, so the upper was already assembled, I just had to do the lower. But I did learn a lot that way.
