    No, because it wasn't me that watched every bullet get seated with the proper amount of powder.

    If I don't seat it, I don't shoot it.

    You don't watch every bullet get seated with the proper amount of powder in non reloaded ammo either though.

    With a company like black hills who make both new and reloaded ammo, how is their process different. (maybe it is. :dunno:) that causes you to trust one but not the other.

    I definitely wouldn't trust my reloads, I have no idea what in the fuck I'm doing.

    Why shoot anything else? The ability to reload for said caliber dictates my gun buying decision.

    Guns are like kids, don't have them unless you can feed them. :)

    It's like driving a car. I was nervous as shit driving at first and learning to parallel park. Your a little slow, unsure, and maybe hit a curve or two but after you've done it for so many times successfully and smoothly you get a confidence with your system.

    10X, but they tend to concentrate on revolver calibres.

    so you never go out to eat at a restaurant? Because if I have the money to eat out then I will. Same with buy factory ammo. :mamoru:

    I rarely eat out at restaurants just because I like cooking and it's cheaper, I'm assuming it's probably the same for AB13 with reloading.

    I guess my guns are hungrier than others. I would rather load my own, because I can tailor my loads and say I've seen the inside of every bullet I shoot, and i save a significant amount on bullets and can shoot, and do shoot a lot.

    No one cares more about a double charge than the man behind the trigger.
    I will NEVER shoot factory.

    Oh, and if you were being for real about that eating out thing. Believe me when I say I am hardly struggling here.

    I believe you. You do a lot of reloading, and that costs money to buy all those supplies in bulk.

    But my point is that in life it's not this absolutely-horrible thing (as you sometimes make it seem) to pay a little extra for convenience. It's great that you like reloading -- but it's not bad that I like factory.

    I had a bad dream once where I was having to draw my firearm to defend myself and the first, then second, and then third round refused to fire. I kept chambering a new round just to find it wouldn't fire. Then I thought I shouldn't have bought remanufactured ammo. Then when the guy tackled me with a knife I woke up.

    Scary shit, I just buy ammo fresh since I don't know fuck all about reloading, don't have the supplies to do it, and would just rather have the peace of mind.

    I'll shoot reloads at the range but I have 2 clips sitting next to my gun at home that are loaded with premium rounds.
