    I admit I was wrong I can't stand it, not to be able to load my own traploads. Yesterday I bought a brand new RCBS Grand from Cabelas and I'm gonna set up a whole new loading bench and start in all over again. I went a full year shopping around and buying whatever load I could get and it just doesn't work for me, so I'm back at it again. #8 shot was $37.99 a bag at Cabela's in Reno yesterday, it was $39.99 for the same thing at Scheels.

    Glad to see your back at it. I like to reload, I enjoy it. I don't find it to be a chore or job. And I get alot of satisfaction from breaking targets with my own shells. I could probably buy new for about the same but they will be promotional type of shell and I know mine are far better than that.

    My advice is rethink it.

    If you still decide to get rid of your reloading stuff, load up enough ammo for the next 5 years of expected use. If you have checked the price of ammo it is outrageous. The second factor is availability - will you find what you want?

    Warren,

    Look around, there are better prices on lead, even with shipping. If you are willing to drive a little bit, I bet you can do MUCH better.
