Reloading is a hobby among many and an industry unto itself.Hello everyone, one last real quick question and I'm not sure if this topic has been placed elsewhere although, I have looked and can't find it so please forgive me if it has. However I am wondering everyone's thoughts on never fired ammo vs. reloaded ammo. Does it make a huge difference to use reloaded ammo strictly for the range? A buddy of mine has told me about a site where I can get 100 rounds of 40 S&W reloads for $23.99 + S&H and he says they are solid reloads and he has never had a misfire with them. If anyone wants to share their thoughts that would be greatly appreciated! :lol:
About half the cost of a cartridge is the brass casing so many folks reload ammo.
If everything is done properly nothing should go wrong. The only squibs (too little powder and bullet doesn't leave the barrel) I've seen at the range are from reloads. And, too much powder can cause guns to blow apart. There are a lot of variables (type of powder, amount of powder, casings sized properly, etc.) that may give you inconsistencies that you do not encounter with factory ammo. But, you save money.
That said, if you buy reloads from a reliable source they work just as good as factory ammo for getting bullets down range.
Regardless of what you shoot at the range I recommend that before you leave the range you run at least one magazine with your "carry" ammo to imprint how your gun shoots with the "good" ammo in your mind and body.
