What is your free time worth?
It's worth exactly whatever it is I want to do in my free time. Usually spending time with the kids. BUT... I do like to shoot and I actually often pay money to do it. While I wouldn't pay rent on a reloading press purely for the sake of reloading like I do range fees purely for the sake of shooting, reloading is still something I mostly "want" to do as I get to see the outcome when I shoot. It can be a chore sometimes, but I still enjoy it. I like to tinker. I like to work up good loads. I like to work on and make the cheap Lee classic turret crank out rounds beyond what it's life expectancy probably should be.

Does anyone participating in this thread realize that Freedom Munitions and LAX ammo are quite possibly two of the worst known re-man ammo sources of the known free world?

This stuff makes the very idea of "remanufactured ammo" seem like a horrendous idea.

And that's a shame because quality re-man is decent ammo. Black Hills began life as a quality re-man ammo company.

Freedom Munitions is hot garbage. LAX is basically the same junk from the same folks.

and your point is???

I see them mentioned in the OP, but only about their advertised prices, not the quality, I've never used any, nor do I plan to.

"Remanufactured" is just a fancy term for "reloaded" commercially, and guarantees nothing specific.

I KNOW the quality of my reloads and handloads, and if it doesn't meet my minimum standards, I know who is to blame for that.

At last count (and it was some while ago) I was set up to reload for about 30 different rifle and handgun rounds. Been reloading since the early 1970s, don't do a lot of volume shooting anymore, so not really concerned with factory ammo prices much.

We're all in different spots, but for me, reloading isn't obsolete, its my primary ammo source.
