Premium Ammo/ Premium Price

That's why I load my own. That PREMIUM FACTORY Ammo gets quite pricy real fast. PLUS >>> When I load my own I can figure out what my rifle likes, NOT what some ammo company tells me will work.

It's crazy

I know I didn't pick a cheap caliber to shoot. But if my calculations are right, if I load my own, the price per round should be about $1.50 after all is said and done. Compared to $3.50+ for premium factory ammo.

So it's only a matter of time before I get all the tools needed to reload. Something I'm really looking forward to.

Hand loading is a fun hobby

Hand loading is a fun hobby and I have been doing it for over 40 years now. I am still using my first press and a few of the tools that came with it, but I have upgraded a lot of tools as the time has gone by.

As for cost you are about right and by reusing cases the cost goes down. Here is a site that you can input your information and it will tell you what your cost per round is.
