make sure ya got a good powder measure and
scale, reloads can be ALOT more powerfull than factory crap, and you can reload lead bullets in rifle calibers sub-sonic, you can reload MATCH grade ammo for a .38 special,
you can reload some ammo like .458 Whichester Magnum for 1/10 the cost with lead bullets than factory ammo, you can make
.458 Win mags that have hardly any recoil.
just be carefull and check twice on powder
weights untill ya get some system that is safe for you.:}
