Components and hulls are a big part of loading.

If you have NO way to get hulls...try and buy them cheap. If you have NO reloading store close by, try and purchase a big load once or twice per year.

A couple of places offer free shipping every so often or Birthday discounts.

CAC os a great place to buy bulk.

All the best and good luck.

My shot is Peruvian Eagle bought two years ago; couldn't get Lawrence/West Coast at the time; and I love that stuff; used to live in Carson City, 5 miles from the West Coast shot tower - that's good stuff.

CAC has West Coast for $35/bag right now. Remington for $40.

Pretty good prices. I bought a few hundred pounds at the first of the year and used my Birthday discount or I would pick up some. Not sure what their shipping is.

Where are you getting shot? I'm down to about 5 bags and was shocked at the current price.

I shoot alot! This allow me to. NEVER a shortage on ammo here. My average cost across the board for each box is +/- $2.25 a box
I'm like Kaboomer, I have hoarded lead over the years and cast most my own bullets. I even use cast for reduced plinking loads for the 06 and some of my other more modern bolt actions. I haven't gotten into dropping my own shot yet, but it may soon become an option. Right now I have a couple hundred pounds of shot of all sizes.

I stopped reloading for 12 gauge when the lead companies were all forced out by the EPA, the last one closing up in 2013. The cost of lead skyrocketed and it became cheaper to buy imported shells then to roll your own. Just lucked into 6K lbs+ of reclaimed # 7 1/2 (or #8, I'm still not 100% sure) that was used as ballast, so nice and clean, no dirt. I'm dusting off my old MEC and getting back into it !!

Lead companies are not out of business; lead smelters were shut down during Obama's reign of terror making us more dependent on foreign sources...........

One thing not mentioned is for California inpatients. By reloading for everything you own, you stay off yet another unconstitutional list that our MiGs (Morons in Government) try to saddle us with.
Besides, we need as much "therapy" as we can get.
