I just thought it was rather interesting the first picture was of a bunch of .22 Rimfire.

I do agree with the article. It is like in the old days with shelling peas and butterbeans. You knew you had a good meal ahead of your. With reloading you have some good shooting ahead of you.

It is relaxing and productive at the same time.

Thanks for the article.

I'm retired, living on a fixed income. I shoot ~800 rounds per month. Reloading allows me to enjoy a sport I love.

I've some loads you can try for 45acp, .357mag, 9mm, and 5.56 if anyone is interested.

I got into reloading because of the ammo shortage.
Ammo started getting scarce soon after Obama got elected. It just got a lot worse after Newtown, and his re election.
I think his cementing a 2nd term had more to do with the shortage. The Feds started buying up all the ammo.

I got into it, for the cost saving and learning. I charted all costs, and figured my equipment out to 5000 rounds.
I find the cost savings to be 30% and better.
That is buying quality components.

I have learned a lot, and because of the powder shortage, I ended up experimenting a lot.
Now I settled on Titegroup and a back up Power Pistol. No doubts because I tried several others.
