Kinda like in golf, it's good to know your game and play accordingly (at least that's what I hear since I'm a total duffer).Component availability not withstanding it's not worth looking into for me. If I'd started reloading when I started shooting I'd be in a much higher tax bracket today. :crying:But at the age of 76 I guess it's not gonna happen now...or ever.
At my age, with my fading eyesight and memory and my arthritic hands I would be very afraid to drop the hammer on any round I loaded.
Here's my thought process as I load a round:
.Oooops dropped another brass
.Opppps my hand slipped off the handle...again
.Where did I leave my glasses
.Did I already put the powder in? I don't think so. I probably didn't. :headscratch: I'll just put it in now. :homer:
No. The world is a safer place if I just buy over the counter like I've been doing for over half a century.:cheers:
Process is called "Mexican Match" and is typically done with mil stock ammo and target quality bullets.Worth it? Yes.
You should start grabbing components now and just get hold of whatever you can.....
One thing you could do to practice is take existing crappy range ammo you have laying around and go buy some higher quality hollowpoint (or whatever) projectiles. Pull the range ammo projectiles with an impact puller and practice bullet seating, powder measuring etc.
The reason I say use higher quality projectiles is for motivation purposes... because in the end you come out with factory-like ammo with a better projectile.
Never too late. And many reasons to reload.Is it worth looking into reloading now? Are components available?
No, I wouldn’t start now for that reason.To give me an alternate source of ammo in the current drought.
...while true, a squirrel also has to eat.Squirrels don’t wait until the middle of winter to gather nuts.
