Some ranges do not allow reloads because they have no idea how capable the person was that put together the ammunition (they also may want to sell you ammunition). As for reloads being bad for your gun? This is pure BS due to ignorance! Properly prepared reloads will not harm your firearm. Get that Rock Chucker and wade in. You will find reloading a rewarding experience both mentally and financially. Shoot more for less and learn in the process. Good luck.IS there any truth, or is it just a personal preference that some shooters feel that reloads are bad for thier firearms, and will not use them, and some ranges will not allow them?
