I reload because It's more bang for the buck...Litterally and figuratively. It's a heck of a lot of fun, and I don't really know why I put it down for so long...Oh yeah...it was that Archery thing I did...Now I have bad rotator cups...Who said archery wasn't hard on the shoulders??? When I recently purchased a 22-250, I did so because I can shoot it a lot, justify reloading (a lot) and load 4 boxes of shells for the price of one. Also, the only rounds I could find were thin jacketed hollow points and ballistic tips. I know that is what the gun was made for, but due to my shoulder problem, this gun will also double as my deer gun for this season. (I'm having surgery, and will not be able to withstand any recoil...) So Thanks to the info you guys have given on this post, I'm reloading some Sierra 55 gr. btsp's which I cannot buy anywhere where. Also, It only cost me $4.00 a box to reload it. So why shoot one when you can shoot 4 Plus, working up the load is fun, exciting, and rewarding.

Look at it this way: reloading is a whole new field of gadgets to buy and/or drool over!
