    I own guns. I shoot a lot. If I didn't reload, I couldn't shoot a lot.

    And I really enjoy reloading.

    I shoot quite a bit. I'm in the "Wants To Reload" group.

    If you don't reload, you can only shoot six times. Then it becomes an expensive rock...:D

    Seriously. I do reload. Not only does it help me to shoot more, it helps me to understand more about ballistics, components, and the intracices & eccentricities of firearms (plus it lets you do something shooting-related even when you can't go shoot).

    Plus, it gives me something to do to keep out of my wife's hair...:evil:

    I own guns, I shoot a lot, and I reload. I'm looking into making my own bullets via casting. Most of us couldn't shoot a lot if we didn't reload.

    I am setup to reload - but I have little time to shoot as it is, the rainy weather makes it even harder and my new Xbox distracts me in the evenings.

    I have a few hundred rounds of .45 setup - just gotta go shoot it.

    I need to move to the country so I can shoot in my yard...

    I own guns, don't reload, want to reload. I don't shoot rarely, but I don't shoot often. I don't have a car, so I have to go on other people's schedules, which are often not my own.

    Happy New Year!

    Didn't expect that many to be reloading. Never seems like anyone at the range is picking up their brass except me when I pick up my .45s to pass on to my friend.

    I shoot once or twice a week. I reload at least once a week.

    Does anyone else think that reloaders/handloaders make better shooters? Or are reloaders usually experienced shooters to begin with?

    Reloading for me is kind of a chore for me now but when I first got into it I'd shoot just for the fun of reloading. Now I cast and reload just to save money.

    Own guns, shoot frequently, and handload frequently. Load some cartridges which are no longer produced commercially.

    I shoot, I reload, and since I mostly shoot revolvers, I rarely have to pick up brass.

    If you think its too expensive to get started in reloading, then I suggest that you check out LEE .

    I bought the Lee Deluxe Turret Press Kit and the Lee Reloader Press. Basically all set up for reloading for under $200 retail.
