Im a longtime shootoer, but have never reloaded, but am seriosly thinking of changing that, because I really can not afford to shoot much any more, based on ammo prices. I have 2 main questions. The first is, can someone tell me, just how much I would be spending, after I buy my equipment, and go find my own brass, per round on just FMJ 9mm, .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and 5.56? Even if I could reload for half, that would be a huge savings over the long haul. Next, can I get away with a basic reloading starter kit, such as Lee or others have, or should I get something a little better, if I can afford it. Once I have the kit, I have the time, so my plan would be to load a couple thousand rounds, in total of the various calibers. If that bit of information helps in guiding me toward a reloading kit. Any information you folks can give me, it will be more than I have. I have always bought my ammo, online for the last decade. Thank You.
