I handload for everything no matter what the intended target is. But since my current deer rifle is a 257 Weatherby, I wouldn't consider factory loads because my bank won't loan me enough money to finance a box! \:\) It cost's nearly $30 a box to handload the Barnes TSX bullets on top of 73 grains of IMR 7828. Yeah, that's a ridiculously expensive bullet for deer but at those velocities, I figure I need it to not come apart on anything but a perfect broadside shot. Love that laser flat trajectory........
I shoot 100gr NBT over 73gr of 7828. Killed 9 or 10 ten deer with it aint had a problem with em comin apart.
You can't fix stupid!

Mainly with me its the satisfaction of shooting my own ammo and killing game with it. I've got some really accurate loads for my rifles and handguns too.

Thats how I am, I enjoy the satisfaction of using my reloaded ammunition. Reloading to me is as much of a hobby as hunting.
