    I pick up EVERYTHING that is shot...even from my students. If I can't use the brass, I recycle...$150/lb.

    Holy cow! I'm sending you my brass to turn in! I am lucky to get $.70/lb!

    I don't reload yet and have always saved and stored it in a 5-gallon bucket also until the price goes up and then take it in for cash.

    I too, do not reload, yet that is... The more I think of it and consider the savings, it really is a no brainer. I just need to prepare for the initial hit with purchasing the equipment.

    My friend recieved his Dad's old reloading gear. I have been trying to find 7.62x54r ammo with a casing thats solid brass. I figure, not only will it save money, but that ammo won't last forever out there. It'll be good to just stock pile every shell I shoot.

    150 bucks a pound !!!!! Geez. Thats what... a new gun for every 40-50 rifle rounds?

    Yep. you nailed it on that. But the equipment, with the manufacturers of today, are making a product that will last many many many years with proper care.

    Keep an eye on craigslist in your area. I simply use the keyword search for 'reloading'. There are hundreds of sellers of everything you can imagine for reloading. I bought my MEC JR single stage shotshell press NIB for $40. Had to go to Ft.Collins to get it, but my wife was already in Denver so she picked it up for me. A day road trip could save you hundreds of $$$. I see a lot of RCBS stuff and now and again I see some Dillons. If you can score a Dillon that would be great!

    Default new reload equipment ...

    Okay, so my good friend michael got me interesting in starting a garden so I went out and bought all the goodies to start a garden, lawnmower, rototiller ...well I finally got my first home grown veggie and I figure that one zuccini cost over $400 dollars but it sure was good ...
    now I have gotten all the equipment to reload, turrent press, dies, bullet trimmers and all the goodies to make my own ammo at home .. we will see how this goes but sure looking forward to reloading my 223, 40 and 45 caliber ammo ... I figure that about 2000 rounds should make the expense even but from then on, it will be half price or better to make my own ammo .. and if it doesnt ...I will just blame michael for getting me into another mess.

    Good thing you met Michael, otherwise you would just be sitting around on your thumb with nothing to do. (Did I say that? Must be the Vicodin talking...good stuff.)
