I reload as a hobby on a small scale. On more exotic or less popular calibers like 458 SOCOM or even 45-70 I definitely save significant $ per round, but thatís really just a beneficial side effect. More important is that I enjoy experimenting with bullets and powders and loads. With 45-70 I have the flexibility to create anything from a load suitable for an antique trapdoor to something powerful for a strong modern action.

I would never bother reloading 9mm or 5.56 myself, because I have no reason to optimize them. I do a little bit of reloading for 45 ACP mostly because I have situations where I want either lower power or higher power rounds than typical factory loads.
