>>137>its not a way to save money though
Saving money is nearly half of why I have
reloading parts, supplies.
Being unduly fussy about bullet selection is the other. I want 140gr 7.62x39, and 130-140gr grendel rounds, which is vaugely findable but spendy.
So long as you shoot enough
to go through your powder, it can easily be half the cost and you're shooting much nicer bullets.
Of course, the more you spend on "Fancy" tools, trying to get just the right OAL for your
chamber, trying to reduce time spent changing parts to get to the next stage of reloading (multistage press, or more quick-release collars) the higher your overhead, spread out over all your shooting rahter then projectiles, which can be easily be calculated per-round.
I've got dies for: 277 wolverine, 7.62x39, 6.5 grendel, and 357-SIG. I used to have a .308 set but ... that got left out after the last move, and is nothing but a pile of rust, now.
so .308 & 45 RAPTOR need to be next.
