FYI I have an offer in, but haven't heard back. I'll defer to allow you to get it first. If you pass though I will be buying it as soon as he gets back to me. I've been putting offers in all weekend haven't heard anything from anyone, kind of surprising.

$125 for the lot? If less, I prolly wouldn't get back to you either.

$80-$380 depending on kit. Not sure how that's relevant? People ask a price I meet it if it's something that's fair and something I'm looking for.

The powder measure safety interlock stops that from being possible.

While reloading can save money (per round), it will take investment. If $150 is a stretch, you'll have difficulty in buying enough volume to realize the savings though.

I own a small business. I make pretty good money for a single guy. I just try to be disciplined with it or Ill spend it all on guns. Bills / rent / taxes before fun. About to buy plane tickets to Europe. Have a couple WTB adds running. Also every single person has very strong and differning opinions. I just want to learn a little before I buy something. Im the type of dude whod drop a 1000 on Dillion cause Im excited about reloading. I just dont want to look back and wish Id had some restraint.

Ya I see your point. Start slow and build up. Some folks shoot to reload. Some reload to shoot. You will understand the meaning if you find reloading is another hobby. It will consume ypur free time.
I enjoy the hobby. Nice to just relax and enjoy my fruits of labor. O and I'm cheap lol. Paying 1.00 or more a round sucks.

I dragged my feet for years before I started reloading. Even when I officially started, I still moved pretty slowly at acquiring equipment. Only what I needed to start, and one caliber at a time as I added equipment.

I've always been an ammo hoarder, so I've never been a "load to shoot" guy. After years of saving brass, I have plenty of cases to work with.

I've been cranking out my own ammo for a little over three years and think I've finally acquired all the equipment needed. Now the only money I'm spending is for consumables.

To be honest, I got a lot of my ideas for setting up my bench from looking at all the pics in the RELOADING BENCH PICTURES thread near the top of this forum. I'm really limited on space, so I had to figure out how to fit everything onto a 27"x36" desk. It's a bit cramped, but hasn't really been a problem.

I honestly enjoy loading as much as I enjoy shooting. Kind of nice to retreat to the garage and shut everything else out and just concentrate on the task at hand. Really calming also.
