Always be prepared by knowing how to load your own ammunition! Having a stock of reloading supplies and trusted equipment is the only sure-fire way of always remaining an independent shooter.
Here are five reasons why its the right time to start acquiring the reloading supplies, tools, and knowledge needed to reload your ammunition.
By now, this one should be obvious to you. When the ammo shelves are bare, you want to still be able to grab a pound of powder, a box of projectiles, and primers to reload your own. Always having reloading supplies on hand enables you to reload your own whether you want to chamber obscure cartridges or common cartridges without depending on anyone else.
You completely learn your guns.
It’s good when you read articles or watch podcasts about what others have said about your gun and the ammo you should be firing. But nothing will teach you more about your own gun and how you shoot it than loading and shooting your own ammunition. Knowing how your ammo works also helps you understand how your gun functions. Trying different reloading supplies is the way you learn how different rounds perform when you pull the trigger. It’s how you fine-tune to that last tenth of a grain that gets you consistently punching the center ten ring. Developing and testing your own loads is how you develop full reliance on your guns.
With store-bought ammo, the only control you have is with your shooting technique. There are a few variations, but these are still limited to the combinations commercially available. Reloading supplies in small batches is the inexpensive way to test bullet brands, types, shapes, and weights not commercially offered for your cartridge. Special loads have quickly solved a lot of problems for independent shooters. It’s about developing a load for a particular firearm that combines the magic balance of velocity and accuracy.
A most enjoyable hobby.
Learning about and selecting the right reloading supplies to make your own ammunition is just plain fun, rewarding, and enjoyable. It is an ongoing learning experience. If your shooting is weather-dependent, reloading is a great way to relax with your hobby in the warmth of your home on a cold, windy, and rainy day.
Affordability must go on this list.
Some factory ammunition (when available) is relatively affordable. But when it’s not widely available it becomes expensive. And some factory ammunition is always prohibitively expensive. If you enjoy shooting a cartridge in the ‘always prohibitively expensive’ category, reloading your ammo is the way to still enjoy your favorite shooting without breaking the bank.
It’s Up to You as an Independent Shooter
With experience, you’ll develop your own loads that all hit a dime at 100 yards by fine-tuning a specific powder and bullet combination. But do it safely by experimenting with the various load recipes listed in reloading manuals. You will quickly learn that you can build better ammunition than you can buy. And you can build it for a lower cost. Most factory ammunition is relatively good but still doesn’t compare to the accuracy that you achieve by weighing every charge of powder to the tenth of a grain for consistent pressure in every round that comes out of your gun. For low cost, factory ammo can’t approach that degree of fine-tuning.
