INSIGHT OF THE MONTH:

The Value of Experimentation

As you become more comfortable with reloading your own ammunition, your interests will likely shift from simply loading safely and correctly to loading ammunition that is consistent and accurate. Optimizing your ammunition for performance and consistency is one of the greatest challenges of being a reloader, and it’s also one of the most fun and exciting elements of the hobby. Experimentation, when done safely, is an excellent method for fine-tuning your reloading practices.

Different Reloading Supplies
Reloaders with years of experience often have one particular set of supplies they prefer. Brass, for instance, has more than one manufacturer and it’s inevitable that you’ll like the work of one more than the other. The best way to figure out which you prefer is to test as many different types as you can. This goes the same for almost all reloading supplies; different supplies give you different results right down to the tools you use to do the job.

Building on the Work of Others
The great thing about the reloading community is that it is very open to new reloaders. Visiting a reloading forum (or stopping by one of our monthly reloading workshops) is an excellent way to find out which setups have worked best for other reloaders and to get feedback on your ideas. Once you have a baseline as established by the community’s collective knowledge, you can fine-tune your workflows within that baseline for optimum results. This also helps you to stay safe while you experiment.

Finding the Fun
For many beginning reloaders, reloading can feel a touch stressful. There’s a lot of pressure to get the measurements and the process right, and you can lose yourself in the details. Once you’re comfortable, however, you’re free to start making informed decisions on the best way to move forward with the reloading process, allowing you to have a little more fun when working with your ammunition. Safety should always be a priority, but testing different reloading setups is certainly an exciting day at the range.

Reloading is about more than having the right reloading supplies. It’s about finding the right supplies for you, and figuring out how best to deploy those supplies for your needs.
