    I don't think I have the equipment to cast my own bullets.

    But if you were reloading back when Obummer was in office, and ammo was expensive and scarce, you were a genius.

    Absolutely.

    There will be thin times again. Might take a while but properly stored reloading items don't go bad.

    Yep. I am using primers from the 1990s.

    Try to buy components in bulk or private party when you can. Mom and pop gun store always have tons 2nd hand brass dies and tools. Get pick up brass from the ranges that allow it. My way for over 30 years of loading.

    You're not going to have an inhalation danger. Lead melts at about 621 F, vaporization point is about 3100 F. One CAN start with a progressive press, like the Dillon 650, but the vast majority of beginning reloaders are much better served with a single stage or turret press when learning. I buy and sell quite a bit of used reloading equipment, and have bought several progressives from people who started reloading and gave up. If you re just looking for cheaper ammunition, you are probably better of chasing sales. You don't save money by reloading, but you can shoot more for the same amount of money.

    I agree on the sentiment that you don't save a lot on 9mm, but .223 is a different thing to me. With pick-up brass, it's easy to load 20 high quality rounds for $4.50 or so. That's easily cheaper than crappy factory ammo cost.
