If you can't figure out how to do this, you have no business keeping a gun for self defense, because you are too damned inept to use it in a safe and responsible manner. A Lee Handloader is a Whopping $20 and loads 50 rds per hour. A used press, dies and powder scale is a $50 or less deal on Ebay, and loads 150 rds per hour. At a savings of say, 15c per shot, 150 rds per hour is $22 an hour, tax free. For $200 or so, you can get a used, or even in some cases, NIB (new in box) Lee progressive loader, which can load 600 rds per hour, on EBay or one of these gun forums. Then you will be saving $90 an hour, bud.
