Somebody made a clone of his ad on CL. Says the exact same but has extra crap in there about laughing all the way to the bank and how newer Jeeps with less miles have lower asking prices.

I would post a link but seriously, the joke was dead days ago.

A joke is one thing, an we all take as much as we receive, but when it goes too far, it loses its humor and when it gets personal like that, it's way too far, and not cool!

Can anybody tell me about how much it costs to reload .308?
How many times can you reuse the casings? Where do you get the actual bullet? What keeps the primer in place? About how much does the equipment cost? How do you know how much powder to use? What makes you decide on one powder over another? How far do you press the bullet into the casing? What does it mean to "crimp" a casing? How long does it take to reload say 100 rounds?

This question has far too many variables to answer definitively. I can load it for around $.50/rd. bullets can be bought at gun shows, online, or at bass pro. Get a reloading manual and it will have bullet depth, powder charge, velocities, etc. you chose bullet/powder combos for what you want to do with the round. Equipment costs anywhere from a few hundred to well over a thousand for a complete setup. As far as time, depending on equipment, it will take anywhere from 1-2hrs to 4-5 hrs depending on skill and brass. You can usually get 5-10 reloads or more out of a case, as long as you aren't loading them hot.

The primer is "pressed" into the case, so friction holds it in place. Crimping the case is done after bullet seating and is generally to help with feed issues in semi autos and some bolt actions. It closes the top of the case around the bullet creating a smoother edge transition from bullet to case.

Powder choice is similar to bullet choice and is mostly trial and error. Different guns like different bullets an powder charges/types. Powders are either flaked, balls, or pellets. Some are fast burn and some are slow burn. Generally the slow burn is used in long barrel rifles whereas the fast burn is for pistols. Powders all have different burn rates and pressure numbers, mixed with bullet weight, shape, and case type, all create distinct variables when loading. That's why I recommend using like stamped cases for loads instead of mix matching cases.

I honestly can not think who would have reposted that ad. It is one thing for us to bust his balls on here, but to do it in the marketplace where he is trying to sell it is another story. Heck I work from home and I don't even have that much time to kill.

I was back at sportsmans warehouse today looking at guns... I am going to get myself in trouble if I don't cut it out.

You've got a lot in there. I would say start with a reloading handbook. It will tell you what measure powder for what load. You can use a case until it either cracks or bends so far out of whack you can't straighten it out. Primers press into the case pretty tightly. You can get the bullets or slugs from midway or any other supplier. Depends on how exact you are on you quality control and whether a round is rifle or handgun. Handgun I can do 100 in an hour. Sometimes more. But that is after I've already tumbled the brass. Equipment can range in price. My dad has got a dillon progressive press that was pretty much the best you could get 20yrs ago. It is a little pricy to get into but if you shoot enough you will save money. There are a lot of variables as well. Do you plan on buying brass or picking it up? If I remember tomorrow ill look up .308 in my handbook and quote a cost of 100 .308 rounds.

That is my problem. When I go to buy A gun I usually end up leaving with some guns. Now that I'm married that doesn't happen anymore.

Let it go man... Let it go.. There's always gonna be a tool out there somewhere and we don't even know it was someone from here; getting uptight about it only raises your blood pressure and eggs them on.

My problem is when I go shoot, i usually shoot with other people that have really cool guns and it makes me want more and more guns. Guns are bad because they take away from my Jeeping habit. Jeeps are bad because they take away from my gun habit. I like all guns. Marn is an *** for letting me shoot his M1A. Powr is an *** for letting me shoot his TC Encore. Ksturgio is an *** for letting me shoot his M1 Garand. Puck is an *** just because.

You will need a reloading manual, press, powder measure, scale, dial calipers, a sturdy work bench(built mine), a brass tumbler, dies and shell holders for the calibers you're loading, plus the consumables. Bullets and powder vary widely in price. For just plinking, buy it, it's usually cheaper. If you're going for accuracy, load it. It's a long process to find what works best. If you buy new brass, the cost goes up, but if you buy loaded and then reload, you save a little. Primers are typically around $20 for a thousand. Bullets can range from $.25-.75/rd. it all depends on weight, shape, quality, and manufacture. Powder varies by weight and volume. It can be literally a few grains to a sugar packet full. There are so many variables that a quote on price can be difficult. Plus the time it takes you to load it.
