Why I Like to Reload Ammunition
When I first began reloading ammunition it was for the most obvious of reasons, it saved me money. But I learned additional benefits as I continued to reload and H4831 powder for sale document my results. Reloading different types of powder, different types of bullets, different cases and different primers produced different results. I began testing and documenting groups of 3 to 5 reloads to identify the precise load for maximum accuracy per rifle. I place 3 to 5 matching reloads in a small Ziploc bag with the exact measurements and components written on the bag with a permanent marker, then off to the shooting range for results. This takes a boat load of patience and many, many trips to the shooting range, but it’s worth it.
Reloading does save you money, especially if you like to shoot as much as I do. But it’s not just the cost savings that hooked me; it’s become an enjoyable and relaxing hobby. I like to sit at my reloading bench and work on different loads for hours, documenting the loads and results. Once I develop the best load for a specific rifle I document the load so I know the precise measurement to use for future reloads.
I have notebooks documenting all of the successful loads per rifle. If you own multiple rifles of the same caliber you’ll have to go through this process for each individual rifle. The results may surprise you; they will most likely each require a slightly different load or combination of components even though they are all the same caliber. And don’t be fooled by the common misconception that you need to add more powder to get the results you’re after, that’s not always the case.
