If you do a lot of shooting it is cheaper to reload! I do a loot of shooting from 32 SWL up to SW 460 in hand guns and 223 up to 30.06 in longer guns and also black powder guns. If I did not reload I could not shoot 3 times a week. The state of IN has a free range 20 miles from my house that has a 25 50 100 200 yard range that has a concrete walk to the target and 3 shooting benches at each range that is under cover. We shoot about 6 hr at a time.

9mm at Walmart is back down in the $10/box of 50 range. That's 20 cents per for cheap ball.

I reloaded 124gr cast lead that I bought at $7/100. That's 7 cents per bullet. Wolf SP primers $17/1000, even with shipping and hazmat (ordering with friends at work and splitting costs) my share was $8, 2.3 cents per primer. 5.0gr Universal Clays, $20/lb- hazmat and shipping already figured on the primers. 7000 grains/lb = 1400 rounds = 1.4 cents/rnd. Total = 10.7 cents per round.

I can reload practice ammo for just over half what I pay for ball at Walmart.

The Walmart in Ocala carries reloading supplies including Hornady XTP hollowpoints in 9mm for just under $15/100. 5.5 gr of N330 @1250fps 1.9 cents per round. Total = 18.2 cents per round for high performance HP ammo. $9.10/box of 50.

If reloading took me away from my job I would count the time of value. I also don't count the time I spend fishing or watching baseball for the dollar amount involved. Should I?

...Good way of putting it. The joy of reloading, in the barn with my dog (Champ). I would pay if I had to, to take this time away from other things is a no-brainer for me.

Well, at $6-7 to reload a box of 9mm, and the ability to reload 300-400 rounds per hour, I am saving $18-24 per hour, and that is completely worth my time...and I enjoy it.

Speaking of...Yesterday I just received my latest order of Precision Bullets.
138 pounds...the mail man hates me.

2500-115gr 9mm
2250- 200gr 45

A gun is like a parachute: If you need one and don't have one, you won't be needing one again.
