I'm with you OP. I started loading back in 2008 to supply my wife, and self with better, and more ammo for less money per round. This seemed to be a must for shooting IDPA, and 3Gun matches. This task has quickly turned into it own hobby that I enjoy very much. So much that I now load for every caliber I own. It's a great feeling to look at my stock of ammo knowing it's better quality than production ammo.
