    I would never be able to shoot the quantities that I do without reloading. It saves me a fortune. Like staysafebob already stated, don't reload your carry ammo. That can cause you a lot of problems should you ever find yourself defending your actions in court.

    Congrats on getting started. I have been reloading for about a year and a half now. It's a great hobby but just to let you know youíre not going to save much money reloading. Youíll just end up shooting ALOT more! At least thatís what happened in my case! Enjoy and ask any questions you may have.

    Right now Loading:
    45 ACP
    .223 Remington

    I reload all of my hunting ammunition. I use both .270 and .308 ammunition.

    Default Supplies

    Where do you get your supplies from? Do you use lead bullets or FMJ? From what I found 100 winchester FMJ bullets in .45acp go for about $14-$15. Not much of a savings especially if you need to get brass also. I've been tossing around the idea of reloading but it doesn't seem to be much cheaper. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places. Any info would be appreciated.

    The brass is the costliest item. Used (reusing) brass will cut your cost in half or thereabouts. A pound of powder will load approximately 1600 rounds of 45ACP. You can buy 45ACP bullets in bulk or by the 100, 500 & 1000. Primers are a few cents each. Worst case scenario: even I use new brass each time, I figure I would save $4 to $5 a box of 50. reusing the brass would save another $8 or so. Midway, Cabela's, kemfgunshop.com all sell brass and bullets. Don't buy powder or primers online. A $20 Haz Mat charge is applied to any powder/primer orders by anyone that ships through the mail or parcel services.
