i've always seen these as two differnt things. a Handloader does everything likes it's life or death. you know they weigh every case and powder charge, clean primer pockets, sort bullets, try every primer made looking for the one that gives tenth better group. then the reloaders, they find a load that works and stop there. i'll be the first to admit that for the most part i just fill the hopper, fill the primers, throw some brass in the loader and go to town. i only check the powder measure when i first get started, only chamber check the ammo when i have a large match coming up. i don't put the ammo in an ammo box, just throw it in to a coffee can. so are you a reloader or a handloader.
