Thread: Well I bit the bullet today

  1. Thumbs up Well I bit the bullet today

    Well I bit the bullet today so to speak. I just order ever thing I need to start reloading. My son (Kimber PB) has been doing it for some time now and I been just putting it off. So Uncle Sam gave me some money and I just did it. Got every thing I need to start loading 45cal and 40cal. I will add 9mm and 223 later and maybe others. I got the LEE Classic press kit, two turrets, 4 piece die kits for 45cal and 40cal, bullet puller, tumbler with media and polish, 1lb of accurate #2 powder, and 200 rounds of 40cal for $417.00. The only thing I need now is primers.

    Enjoy your new hobby. I have been reloading for more years than I care to admit. It does not save you any money...you just get to shoot more.

    Right on. I just ordered a Dillon 550 with my tax return. Should be here anyday. Got her in .45acp and .223

    Congratulations to both of you on your new hobby. Once you start reloading rifle cartridges, these things pay for themselves very fast.

    You'll love that 550. Mine is set up with 9mm, 45ACP and .308. I disagree with statements about not saving money. You may shoot a little more than you normally would, but you are saving up to 75% on practice rounds. We don't shoot any more after reloading than we did before. It just costs us a lot less now. If you count your time into the equation, then maybe you aren't saving money. I don't. I seem to have more time than money lately, so spending a few hours in the garage reloading isn't keeping me from anything more productive.

    Crap! No more free brass for me now!

    Oh and by the way uncle sam didn't give you money. He was just returning "Some" that he'd already taken.

    +1. It is funny how the government gives us back a little of our money they have stolen from us. Anyway congrats to Kimber RB on your new hobby/pass time.

    Tax returns come from our interest free savings accounts. Congrats on the new equipment, guys. I plan on getting a .308 set up for my 550.

    Scrounge it at the range like I do. I have buckets of it here. Typically I come out ahead with brass after a range session.

    Don't remind me. I did my rebate forms today, I'm getting quite a bit back this year thanks to the first time home buyer credit. Some of it is already spent at MidwayUSA last week.
