I know this is probably the generic question but I was just wondering with the cost of ammunition still headed skywards whether reloading is the more economical route now. I shoot .45, .300 winmag, .223/556 for my AR, and rarely 12 gauge. I hardly take the shotty out and ammo for that is pretty cheap anyway.
But when I shoot for a day I shoot A LOT. I am talking for one outing I will put a few hundred rounds easy of .45, box and a half of .300 win mag, and several hundred rounds of .223. Well I went to AK shooter supply, which seems to be the cheapest for bulk factory ammo, and it was 350 bones for 500 rounds of .45 and .223. I have been keeping my .300 brass and have a couple boxes of 20 saved up already.
If the money to reload all my ammo is the same as buying factory then I suppose I wont bother. However, if spending a few hours in the garage so that I can have a nice days worth of shooting and even start building up a little cache then I think I will start up a new hobby.
What do you guys think?
