    It will take you a very long time to see any cost effective benefit to reloading shot shells, especially considering the purchase of equipment. You can buy 410 ammo cheaper. Reloading .45Colt has a rapid payoff/savings. I can reload .45Colt for about 23¢ - 27¢ each with lead or Berry's bullets. Jacketed bullets are a bit more, but still cheaper than buying factory loads. Surely a wise choice if you shoot a lot of .45Colt. I go through many more of them in my Thunderbolt than in my Judge and I'm sure it would be the same in a lever gun (or more).

    I agree with reloading because I do.

    super cool info. I'm definitely considering it for down the road, especially for the .45 colt. They must use platinum casings for as much as they charge... lol
