The SurvivalBlog have published a blog post detailing the cost savings of hand loaded vs. factory ammunition based on the ammunition and component prices as of this month.

Aside from price, reloading also allows you produce better quality ammunition and tune the load for accuracy in your particular gun.

Thanks to Solomon for sending me the link

    Isn't there a point missing in all this? What about a possible time in the future you want to buy factory and CAN'T.

    i would think reloading is more for those who shoot alot, long range shooters, and peole wth expencive ammo. reloading 20 .338 win mag is prob. cheaper thn buying a box of it. its $45 where i live. dunno just a thought.
