Why You Should Learn How To Reload Ammo
It’s a cold hard fact, for enthusiasts the initial purchase of your firearm will pale in comparison to your ammunition costs over its lifetime. Assuming, of course, that you actually fire the weapon.
Obviously, you could reduce this cost by just stashing and neglecting your firearms. But since I know you’re serious about your guns, your survival firearms should be fired; early and often.
The main reasons for owning a firearm are simple and few:
- Collect them as a hobby
- Use them for a utilitarian task (such as hunting)
- Use them for self-defense
Two of these three require continual, recurring practice to maintain your skills. And admiring an antique in your gun safe doesn’t require practice, but let’s face it, if you’re a firearm hobbyist you likely enjoy firing them.
This means ammunition purchases are a regular part of your shopping and budget.
