Answer: Save your brass, and reload it!!! It's a fact that you can get started reloading at today's prices (27 Aug 13) for less than one hundred fifty (yes I said less than, $150) dollars.
I've been reloading a long time, and have a lot of experience, know how, and contacts when it comes to reloading ammo. I got started reloading for the same reason 95% of folks do. I wanted to shoot more, but couldn't afford to spend more money.
If you have questions? Please ask? I'm serious when I say... "When it comes to guns, safety and reloading? The only dumb question is the one you're too afraid to ask!!!" I don't want anyone getting offended, but if you're serious, just ask, we'll treat you fair, and well, and give you straight upfront, and honest answers. And if I don't know the answer to your question, I'll tell you straight up. I don't know, but I'd betcha a lot of money, I can find the answer.
