Thread: Maybe leaving reloading!

    Maybe leaving reloading!

    Not sure how many this has affected over the years but i find myself not bothered about thumb nail groups anymore as i don't see how it really benefits the stalker who fires a small amount of rounds over the season. Just brought some 123 grain Sako Game heads so will see how they perform.

    Regards

    Carl.

    I reload because neither can I afford to buy all the ammunition I can shoot nor has anyoen offered to buy it for me.

    I reload mostly because of the lack of decent supply of ammo. I can usually get, or keep, a little supply of bullets and powder that will see me through a season and so ammo is always available to me. So, don't give up until you are sure you can get a reliable supply of ammo.

    Nice groups Neil, pm replied to. The Sportsman down here in Exeter can't even get any decent bullets. Its shelfs look bare and it looks rather embracing to be honest, when will this drought end for supplies?

    I reloaded for my pistols because, being all fixed sight, you had to enjoy getting not only an accurate loading but also one that shot to the pistol's point of aim.

    For rifle I reloaded because there wasn't any loading available in factory ammunition at the bullet weight and velocity I wanted. But as the OP says if you find a factory load that works and it is both the bullet weight ANd velocity you want you'd be hard put to justify SETTING UP for reloading.

    But as you already have the equipment I'd simply "mothball" it unti either you no longer have the space or the price it will fetch is at its best.

    Leaving reloading when you already have all the kit. Is someone bullying you into only using factory ammo, or are they supplying you with factory ammo free of charge?
    Just doesn't seem logical to me. Saying that I find reloading very therapeutic but there again I don't strive for absolute accuracy but do achieve reasonable results fairly easy with the minimum of effort.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
