Dr Ray let’s face it, if you ever did the numbers economy is not a word you would use. It starts out as I can save $$$ by reloading. Then ya sit down and shoot 5 times more than you would if you didn’t reload. LOL Then there is all the equipment costs - do yourself a favor don’t keep track of it!!! Before ya know it you have 2 progressive presses, 2 single stage presses, who knows how many powder throwers, enough brass to make a statue of an elephant.
But it is enjoyable!!!! I currently can reload for 30 calibers, I have a few that I am lacking the guns to go with them. Just another reason to buy a new gun. There is a lot to be said about working up a load that can give you the results you want every time you pull the trigger.
