Reloading something that everyone that is into guns should know. My dad taught me and here learned because factory loads were expensive to practice with. He shot Skeet semi-professionally and ran a couple of ranges over the years. So he spent many days at the range just practicing for the next shoot. I would get back into reloading if the cost was better. I did actually enjoy it!

I think the older crowd of shooter starter reloading due to the fact that the factory would produce a high level of duds. Recently I read that most of the manufacturers out there are down to less than a 1% dud rate and with the amount that they are cranking out each year I think that's pretty decent numbers. You would probably have a better chance of winning the lottery!
