"As some of you may or may not know I have been researching the art of reloading. I have tossed the idea away every time ..."
Reloading or handloading ammo is a lot more than just a means to an end. If you don't have some degree of dedication from the start you may not take it seriously and that can be dangerous. The best and safest handloaders are folks who are intrigued by it and pay attention to detail. I've taught a few people who demonstrated a genuine interest how to reload and they do quite well at it. Others I've just said no because they did not have the aptitude. It did not sound to me like you have a genuine interest from your opening post.
