Any of you guys reload?

so any of you reload? I all ways though about doing it and have saved all my brass for years, as in i have TONS of it thousands rounds of good brass.

my dad also said he has all the presses and gave me the modern reloading book.

and after looking at the cost im thinking why i never though of this.

so what are your guys experiences?

If I was to start reloading again, I would definately invest in a progressive press. I had a lot of fun doing it and saved lots of money. I would recomend it only if you have an experienced teacher, which it appears you do. It is a great Father/Son Project.

I reload for my .45

I love doing it.... Not for the saving money factor, but really so I don't have such a big grain load when I'm just shooting at paper targets, and I really get to hone in with the right grain bullet too.

one of things that is motivating me is the fact that at the local dicks and other big sporting good stores, the .40 s&w went from 4.99 a box to 10.99 a box.

Reloading is a great way to be able to afford shooting. I reload mainly rifle and pistol rounds to be able to afford shooting oddball calibers like the 41 Remington mag. It's good you have someone to introduce you to reloading. Have fun and don't try the hotter is always better route. I personally know a guy that has tried to self nominate himself for the Darwin Awards two times. He thought since the case on his 30-06 shells wasn't full with powder he should top it off. He has blown up two M-1 Garrands so far. I don't shoot with him by the way. I have plenty of respect for myself to try to stay away from dumbasses.

yeah i know all about that, we have a guy at the gun club that blew up 2 454's and a magnum research 45-70.

i just want to cut down on the cost (and because you cant use jacketed rounds on the indoor range.

I reload shotgun shells and have done large Cal. hunting rounds with my father in law. I reload mainly because during the winters I am on a trap team and easily shoot 1000 shells a weekend. Shotgun shells are where you really save/make your cash especially if you have a decent reloader and buy in bulk.

I wouldnt mind learning, mostly so I could cut costs on 7.62 and maybe get some nice tailored trap rounds for my Remmington 12g.

That and the chance to load oddball rounds like snake loads and dummy grenade launching loads would be nice.
