    I started loading 9mm five years ago with cast Boolits that bought now I cast my own with free lead.
    Group buys on powder and primers to cut cost on hazmat and shiping so with casting my own and the Group buys I'm loading 1000 rds of 9mm for under $30.00.
    I was at a yard sale last weekend and picked up 10,000 primers of various flavors both large and small for 10.00 per thousand this drives your cost even lower to just under 20.00 per 1000 so to me it's worth it.

    This is how I value my time.
    Lets take 45 auto for example. I get free lead wheel weights. I can cast, lube/size and load 1,000 rounds in around seven hours. Primers and powder for 1,000 rounds cost me $23. So I can load 1,000 rounds of 45 auto for $25 figuring $2 for electricity. To buy 1,000 rounds of factory 45 auto if you could find it would cost around $450. So I saved $425 for 1,000 rounds or got payed $65 per hour to load my own ammo. I can load any pistol caliber for that price if I have a mould to cast for it.

    How can you figure it not worth while to load your own?

    I reload for a hobby ( retired 14 years)
    When people make a run on gun stuff ( because of the anti-gun government people are dumb enuf to elect)
    I have lots of ammo to go shooting

    I hear folks say all the time that reloading is a waste of time and not for them...until we meet at the range and they find out my ammo is more accurate than theirs. Then it is a whine session trying to get me to reload for them. Sorry guys...not happening.
