You'll always be way ahead ...if you decide to reload...in terms of having a supply of ammo.

But reloading is about attention to detail !!...not availablity...or cost savings necessarily ....although you will shoot a lot more with the same ammo budget on mettalic especially vs shotshells. But attention to Detail ...following good procedures, etc...is critical.

I always buy components in case lots ....bullets 2,000 - 4,000 to a case / primers 5,000 to a case / powder in 8lb kegs.....and even with the panic buying right now ...you'll figure out when you're down to 3 or 4 months of supplies...and re-order accordingly when you need components.

I recommend reloading as part of the gun hobby ...especially if you intend to invest in good equipment ( I like Dillon equipment - like the 650 press ) but Hornaday and others make good equipment too.
