I feel the same about .32 S&W-L and .32 Magnum. Not exactly ammo you'll find readily available or affordable for that matter.
One caliber I load is 480 Ruger. Price a box of that if you want sticker shock! Then try to find a box!
But I can load a box of 480 for less than half the cost of factory using new brass, and less than a quarter of the cost using my previously fired brass. That's a savings of about $30 per box.
LOL!!! It's cheap compared to .577 Snider ammo. If you can find it... https://www.buffaloarms.com/577-snider-450-grain-black-po-amobp577snider.html
you shoot a .577 snider? is that the same as a Henry Martini .577?
Additionally, reloading helps me shoot calibers that I otherwise wouldn't be able to, like 357 Sig and 6.5 Grendel (Rapidly becoming my two favorite calibers). These are not available from Walmart generally. Finally, I made a hobby of buying estate sales over the years and upgrading my equipment - wheeling and dealing to the point my hobby has probably made me a few dollars and provided an a lot of fun figuring out some of the goodies I have gotten over the years. I almost always learn something new!
coffee and reloading.... or is it reloading then coffee!
anyways Coffee and bacon time!
So well said!!!!
Short answer, yeah it was worth it, and yeah, today, I can honestly say I actually save money because I reload (I bought a lot of my supplies before the current craziness), and I have more accurate ammo to boot. I can wait until the big box stores have something in stock if I need something (I wont pay gouger prices).
Like others, I also find it pretty relaxing and enjoyable since I am one of those guys that can't just sit and watch tv.
