I will add 1 more reason. You will possibly be limited on how much loaded ammo you can possess in the future. If you reload and stock up you will always have ammo on hand.

Just a fair warning, but reloading is very addicting! I started for the sole purpose of loading subsonic .308 to use in my suppressor, now I reload all my major calibers and cast several calibers. I don't save any money but I shoot a lot more!

Come on, it isn't addictive at all.

Just because I have over 5,000 pieces of centerfire brass, 12,000 primers, about 3500 bullets, and last count 22 pounds of powder, I can quit anytime. I started in 1985 when a box of corelokt proved to be about half bad-cost me a nice mule deer.

I can quit anytime. Soon's I try my stainless steel tumbler, get a bigger sonic cleaner, get a Dillon, build a new bench, add some more shelves, yeah, sure. Anytime.

PS every rifle I own shoots sub-moa with partitions or accubonds.

When you quit let me know how you did it. Letus know how the stainless works I have one on my wish list.

I bought a Thumler Tumbler and stainless pin media last year and never will use anything else. I haven't added anything to make the brass bright and shiny but it sure cleans the cases and leaves no blocked flash holes

If you are losing 20 - 50% of your brass everytime you shoot,


Anybody that's losing that much brass needs to either quit shooting, quit loading or both.


Unless you shoot only on a range with concrete or dirt around benches, you'll do good to find more than what I said above. I shoot a lot on my own land and even in very short grass, cartridge cases most always tend to land and tip with the head down leaving only the powder blackened inside of the case pointing up to see. You can look right at them and never find many. This is precisely why I don't like autoloaders. \:\)

Oh, I know what a pain it is. I have a 200yd range on my property. Grass, leaves, etc. I go to a LOT of trouble to find my brass. I just about have my weapons patterned as to where they throw the brass. 2 of em throw it everywhere though and I'll usually find most and come back with metal detector later.

I put a sheet down so I can just pick it up and roll. I shoot in grass, woods, leaves, etc.
