Well that's a good question. I shot a fair bit growing up, mostly rimfire competition and some hunting, we did have centrefire rifles some of which were we loaded for. I started reloading because I shoot a few oddball rounds that I couldn't easily get factory ammo for. Then latter on I moved to fullbore shooting, so I started loading 308. Then I got into pistol shooting and needed to be able to shoot large volumes of rounds, so I moved from single stage to a progressive presses. Altho I do still load a lot of stuff on a single stage press. Now the NE rounds have sparked my interest, the only NE round I own is a Ruger No1 in 450/400. A box of 20 rounds cost well over $100AUD over here, in fact the only listed price I could find just now is $169AUD for a box Hornady DG ammo then I have to try and get it 1000 miles or so to me. So once again I resorted to rolling my own. I managed to find a 100 Hornady cases brought some RCBS dies and away I went. I do enjoy reloading. Especially when I'm only loading small lots of ammo, 100 rounds or less.
