In general, reloading your own brass will give you better ammo for a cost of about 1/3 to ½ less than factory ammo. Depending upon the pressures and calibers involved, you can usually get 5 to 10 reloads on your cases before you have to discard the cases due to splitting.

I've heard this, but I have some questions. I know that one range nearby won't allow home loads on the line. Where did you learn to reload? By what measure do you say "Better"? Is it time intensive?

Really know nothing about the process, but I have to admit it sounds interesting. Especially that 1/3 to 1/2 off bit.

Cheers,
Tim
