    Reloading = changing out your clip when you run out of bullits.

    But really, reloading is the process of "manufacturing" ammunition from bare components, and spent casings/brass.

    Factory reloads pretty much mean the same thing, except they're done at an actual ammunition manufacturer.

    Looks like a pretty good deal to me. Factory reloads implies the brass has been used once before. I doubt a DOD factory would risk using fired brass.

    I am old, I can remember when $0.17 cents each was a good price for USGI. Now you pay $0.30 for Wolf.

    Dang, I don't know if I want to dive on this or not. How good of a deal is this? I really don't .223 shop too much.
