i been reading this form and others. for those of you how do not reload The question is why?? I see a lot of gripes about ammo prices getting it etc. I relies a lot do not understand it but for the price of couple boxes of say 44 mag ammo you can get the basic equipment you need to reload ,then you will never have to go to wally world and complain about no ammo. To be proficiency with a fire arm you have to have to shoot it a lot. My wife got a ruger sp101 about a year ago I took 300rounds out to the range to test it shot it all in one day .the cost was about 15.00 bucks total I got my hp 45 took it out burned up 225 rounds in the next day cost about 20.00gotanother 250 waiting till fri afternoon. Reloading will open up a whole new world ot you load a 10mm down no problem turn a 44 mag to a kitten easy 38spl +p+ easy i would be willing to assist you be email if you need it. I got a large number of firearms including two wildcats I have never not had ammo for any. Thanks for you time

A lot of people are not reloading because they can't find primers. I haven't seen a primer in a store since about April. Checked at a couple of places while I was in WI this weekend too!

Primers are finally back in No. Dak. As soon as I can get the money together for all the gear I'm gonna start reloading for my C9 and JCP .40. Even thinking about getting into casting too.

There's also the fact that a lot of people just aren't safety- or technically-inclined. Look around for 'kabooms' and many are the result of minor oversights while reloading, and when nearly every firearm manufacturer specifically recommends against using reloads (which typically voids the warranty), it becomes extra risky for many.

Shoot, I bought some professional reloads from a gunshow years back (same equipment that major manufacturers use, lots of QA...these guys sold TONS of the stuff) and have had at least two of the rounds be overcharged. One was in my 995 which laughed and puffed smoke for a bit, the other blew out the magazine of a Kel-Tec PF9...lucky it wasn't worse, but really makes you reconsider reloads, no matter how carefully done.

Probably as many reasons not to reload as there are to reload. For me reloading is the only way but for others it is not.

Space or lack there of, time or lack there of, money to get setup or lack there of, availability of components locally, mindset of attention to detail, mindset towards safety, willingness to check and double check, just a whole lot of reasons. If I didn't have a free supply of casting alloy not sure whether I'd bother with reloading or not? Very glad that I do because casting and reloading for me is every bit as much fun as shooting.
