It don't cost a whole lot to get into rifle and pistol reloading. I used handloaders for years and a few years ago, moved up to the Lee Turrent press. I like it because you can change the Turrent with the dies in it, and don't have to bother the dies. For a couple of hundred anyone can get a pretty good start into reloading. On some Ammo you don't save much, but a lot of people enjoying reloading. It is more accurate, and can be taylored to your gun. For those that has extra time, and like shooting, I highly recommend trying it. There are good books, and a lot of Info on the Internet on how to do it.

Keith you don't reload to just save money. I figured it will take about 2yrs to pay for my reloading gear on the money I saved. It's a hobby all by it's self. What is real neat is to work up your own load for the gun you have. You would see what I mean if you would give it a try. All guns have a sweet spot. You can't always get it with factory ammo. Your gun might be a good shooter on factory ammo, but a great shooter on your reload. Well good luck and good shooting.

I would enjoy reloading .12ga shotgun shells. It's just hard to spend hundreds on reloading equipment when you can buy them so cheap.
That's always been my take on it too.

I see why you drink the Blue Cool Aid 2400. I am sold on them myself. One day down the road I am going to pick another SDB Dillon. One for large primers and one for small. I want to start to do some other calibers. I'll be bugging you again my friend.

Reloading shot shells needn't be all that expensive. I recently purcahased a Pacific DL-105single stage reloader from EBAY for around $50. It's slow, but gets the job done.
The Lyman Shot Shell manual will get you going. Once fired hulls are fairly plentiful.
