I have a .45acp what will the savings be if I do reloading? I have never done this before.
It is enjoyable and I also find it relaxing . . . .I started reloading about 5-6 months ago, from the advice of members on the Handgunforum.net forum. I reload mostly .45 ACP and it as about 1/3 - 1/4 the cost of store bought ammo. Plus, it is enjoyable and relaxing.
Exactly . . a hobby within a hobby . .Here's a picture of my set up a Dillon 650XL and it cost right at a grand. Best money I ever spent. Remember also this is a hobby within a hobby. :biggrin5:
One of the best begining manuals is Modern Reloading by Richard Lee. It is slanted a little towards Lee products but there is a lot of good information in it and it only cost about $12.00 new. Lyman has a good one and Speer #14 is about the best for everything. Winchester went to a magizine type format but the info is good. Hodgdon is on line at this address. http://data.hodgdon.com/main_menu.aspExactly . . a hobby within a hobby . .
The way to begin is go buy a good reload manual and read the beginning over and over until you understand. There's plenty of good books that'll teach you a lot. Read them through and learn and that'll help when you're poke'n around looking for reloading stuff.
