I am new to reloading. I found this site while trying to gain a little more education. You see i got into building ar type rifles and my boss and good friend told me the advantages of reloading for accuracy as i try to build my rifles as accurate as possible, for me anyway. Well...my brand of logicis i built the rifle. Can i build the ammo as well? And thus my trip down the rabbit hole. It started with building a bench for the new reloading kit and took off from there.
I noticed my wallet is getting flatter, (my friend warned me about that). But i have gained quite the education. And being what i am...i want to know more.
Im not sure what ill be able to contribute but i will try and relay my experiences both good and bad.

Welcome to the board. You will not save a penny by reloading. You will shoot more for the same amount, though. Careful reloading can be somewhat addictive...
