Re: Several Questions, from an Idiot: Steel Casings
i agree.. uying new brass for each load will cost you more inthe long run.
PS.. loading a new case is the same art as 'relaoding'.
economy comes from buying projectiles in mass qty.. same with powder and primers... then getting multiple uses of the casing. I typically get at least 4-5 loads on a set of large rifle brass. the brass is the most expensive component.. so you spread the cost out per reloading.
if you practice basic safe reloading principles.. you are no more apt to blow your hand off with a reloaded case than a new one.
as another said.. if you simply want to shoot cheap.. buy the cheap wolf / tul or generic branded non reloadable ammo maybee save the shell casings and sell to a scrapper by the pound.
reloading, generally.. inthe end.. doesn't save you much money.. if any.. but does let you shoot WAY more for that same money.. plus yo learn something.. PLUS you can hand tailer loads for specific guns and have way more control of cartridge load to cartridge load for each case..
