Walrus108, I was out shooting with another GT member, and 10mm shooter today. We were both talking about how it feels so different to shoot reloads. Not in a tactile sense, but how you feel about it. When I would shoot factory ammo, I always felt like I was watching my money go downrange. It was like I was counting it up in my brain. Boom, $0.80, boom, $0.80, boom, $0.80. I would almost try to shoot slowly, or conserve ammo, because I just felt like I was just throwing away money. I was getting to the point of skipping opportunities to shoot, just because I didn't want to have to spend more money. When you reload, that feeling TOTALLY goes out the window. I don't know why, because I definitely spend more money now. However, I shoot about 5 times more than I did. When I shoot my reloads, they just feel totally expendable. Before, I didn't like doing rapid-fire mag dumps just because it felt like a waste. Now, I couldn't care less. I blew through two mags a couple weeks ago just trying to hit a dragonfly (I eventually got him, all I found was one of his wings). It is just such a great feeling. It is so incredibly nice to just shoot and shoot and shoot without feeling guilty about it. Anyway, you have made the best shooting decision of your life. Believe me, in a month you will wonder why you ever spent money on loaded ammo. The feeling you will have the first time you shoot ammo that YOU MADE is just awesome. And, again, it is so much more fun being able to take lots of different loads to the range. Today, when I went shooting, I had four different loads with 50 rounds each, then two more boxes with a combined 10 different loads with expensive SD bullets. Have fun loading, and welcome to the club!!! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
