I suggest you consider this. Yesterday I was shopping around and I picked up some powder and primers. Then I reached for some 9mm ammo because it’s so cheap it doesn’t make sense to reload it. None the less I’ve been saving my brass. So I did some quick math. With taxes it will cost me $141.12 to load 1000 rounds of 9mm. You aren’t going to find factory ammo that cheap. But more importantly I’m stocking up on components so availability of the ammo I want to shoot isn’t an issue. When the shelves are empty I’ll be making my own. So I also bought some dues and a toolhead for my press yesterday. So if you’ve been on the fence about reloading, now is a great time to invest in the equipment and supplies you need to start. It’s a fun hobby for anyone who enjoys tinkering. It’s probably not going to save you money though, it’ll just increase your shooting time. But that’s really the point isn’t it? You usually can work out loads that shoot more accurately from your particular guns. And ultimately in the long run, if all you want to do is save some money, but not increase your shooting, then it CAN save you money. It needs to be done right, but it’s not as hard as some folks think. In any case, given the reoccurring questions that crop up on THR about panic buying, I thought it a good time to encourage folks to start a great hobby. We have another year before the next election. Seems there’s no time like the present.
