Reloading is a hobby and very rewarding. It can shine for those that buy in bulk, heads, primers, and powder. As an example because several years ago I bought those items in bulk the cost to me for 223 55 gr FMJ ammo is about .15 cents per round with me already owning the brass. I also still buy items when they are on sale and tuck away for a rainy day. I know you can get factory 223 in bulk at times for .28 cent a round deliver, but remember not too many years ago when when there was a shortage, ball was costing .75 to a dollar a round. That is when reloading can shine. One thing I have found out that what you pay for supplies today, you will consider a bargain in 5 years.
