H&H has reloading classes or as suggested, get up with a friend and check it out. All the cheap ammo - 9mm, 45 acp, 5.56, etc I just buy. Revolver ammo and all my hunting loads, I reload. It's still cheaper for me by a factor of 2 or more in the long run even with primers at $75-$100 per 1k.Hey everyone,
I recently picked up a 300 Weatherby Mag here in a trade and plan to use it for hunting over the next many years. It came with one box of Weatherby Select Plus ammo. I knew the ammo was pricey before picking up the rifle, but man, I didn't expect $100 a box.
While I am happy to pay $100 once or twice, I would like to be able to reload the same brass after that as I don't expect to shoot more than 20 rounds a year on this rifle once I have it dialed in.
Would it be more cost effective to buy the equipment needed to reload 300 Wby Mag right now? Also very interested in loading for 7mm Rem Mag and 243. What would it take to get started?
I figure that the stuff I shoot a lot of, 9mm, 223, and 308 all are readily available and relatively cheap so I am fine with buying boxes of that pre-loaded.
It may not be for you if you don't shoot enough though. Just assess what you want to do. I can say that it's paid for itself two or three times for the amount that I shoot and I can tailor whatever cartridge I want to use that won't be available commercially.
