Isn’t it amazing that despite current thinking and all the goodies a gent can buy, we actually could make ammo though slow as fk with one of those Lee loaders. Still doable for something now semi auto, like a 45/70 that you don’t shoot a lot. And needs to be minute of sheet of paper. Imagine, one scoop of powder etc…oh the horror, hell I personally have two digital powder scales, a dispenser and balance scales.40 rounds of ammo and one single 30-30 lasted me over 10 years for hunting deer.
Then that old early 1980's ammo was about gone and I bought some ammo in 2008 and it was Horrible.
Lucky to get it on 8.5x11" paper at 100 yards.
Began reloading with the lee classic loader Wack-A-Mole 3/4" groups and just scooped powder with the yellow scooper that came with it.
I went down the rabbit hole on reloading and now with 25,000 primers and more powder than those primers can shoot off I think i have just about enough supplies to last me a couple more years.
Yea you do not save money. It is like a drug. You just need to keep shooting it up.
Then you figure out you can super modify that drug and get even more enjoyment form it.
Ya’ll remember the Lee scope you could buy as a set for all does . Yep they work, reloading isn’t a lot of science for regular shooting ammo
