I am considering setting up to produce accurate enough (ie no worse than factory) 6.5 x 55 cartridges, having discovered how much they are going to cost me otherwise.
I anticipate using a Lee loader to do this, and to learn how to produce a basic load (using a reloading book and published load data.)
Realistically, what are the smallest quantities of everything (excluding brass) that you can buy, and will they keep? is it going to cost me £200 to load up with components, if so I may just give it a miss. Is it wrong to assume that if i don't go mad buying equipment I may save some money?
I realise I look tight from the above, but a factory load always goes bang and always goes pretty much where I expect it, at least good enough to knock over deer which is the job i use it for, so unless there's a price differential I don't think I'll be incentivised. I have enough hobbies without adding another to find time for.
Thanks in advance
