I don't because I have too many other things that consume all my time and money.  Also the same reason I don't play golf.

Bolt guns....YES!

Black Betty has never had a factory round run through her.

 

AR's, handguns, shotguns...no.

 

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

How do you get hunting ammo for your 6.5x284?  I think Nosler is now doing a factory loading but this is recent.  Do you have a friend/relative doing your reloading?

 

I've been reloading for about a year.  Right now I'm sticking with .223, .308, 6.5x284, and .260 Remington.

I find reloading very time consuming,I have a friend do my reloading for hunting or I use match ammo and stick to the same bin for paper on some rifles.

not yet, I need to get my own equipment. I have freinds that will do it for me, but i'd like to make my own. That way if I have a mishap its my own.  One day I'll CT to give me his recipe for 168Gr Amax's.     I have Black Betty's twin sister.

I load for my rifles because I want precise 308 ammunition, I own a 338-06 so reloading is mandatory.

 

I reload for my pistols because I carry a 9mm and it is absolutely impossible in the U.S. to buy a real 9mm spec load.  For those who don't know, the original spec is 124 grain bullet at 1250 fps.

What you buy is 115gr at 1050-1100 fps.  There's a difference.

That's me, too. Though I have dies for 9mm, .45ACP, .380ACP, I don't do it anymore. The quantity prices on this stuff is hard to beat. Same goes for the service rifles, quantities are pretty good deals. I guess a progressive press could change this picture.

Reload a lot of handgun, mostly .44....use a dillon 550b....saves a lot of time; only way that I can afford to shoot much.  Reload some rifle, 308 & 45-70.

there for a while i thought about starting to do pistol reloading but if you own a 9mm or a 45 or a 40, its almost a waste of time unless you are banging round like 3-4 times a week, then i can see it of if you hunt a lot with a wheel gun, 480 500s&w 454 big stuff like that i can see doing.
