Ok, I went to the supply shop and bought enough powder and primers to load 2000 rounds of 9mm. It cost me right under $93. If I bought 2000 rounds of ready made's at $12.50 a box (of 50), it would cost me $500.00 plus tax. The second and on to 15 reloads cost me under 5 cents a round compared to the 25 cents the ready made's are . After the first reloads I already have the brass and I get my wheel weights for free at the tire shop in town for the bullets I make . I can shoot 50 rounds 20 times a month for 2 months before I run out of powder and primers.

So now I have a question,
where the heck is all the money that I got into reloadin for so I could save???

You're not going to save much on 9mm's. Savings on other calibers, especially revolver rounds, do add up though. YMMV, hobbles.

Afternoon SD,
I realize I save 20 cents per round by making my own, but I find in the long run I just shoot more. I think I still spend the same amount of money. My wallet ain't no thicker.

You reload more cause you shoot more so it eats up you savings. :(

Also, I reload because I like it, it's fun, its better than collecting stamps, building scale models of bridges out of toothpicks, or knitting.
