Most that are getting into reloading now to save money are being disappointed. Lots of things are needed to do it right, but that doesn’t mean progressive presses and such to increase volume. Accurate Scales Case gauge Calipers Swage or other primer pocket tools. Lots of other small things that just add up. The default die set you pick might not be optimal and you might need another die or two to get the desired results Chronograph to verify etc Testing and load development might take way more rounds than you think. And getting through the problem solving that many have to endure during the hearing stages. Being frugal can make it worse. Using jacketed bullets makes things a bit more forgiving, but at a cost. Component cost are MUCH more expensive for small volumes. (1000 or less) I very often run across people using reloaded ammo at the range and in competitions that is pure junk. Feeding issues, accuracy even tumbling bullets, smoke fest, etc because of “saving money”, lack of attention to detail, and skipping steps. Most reloaders tend to leave off some of the costs associated with reloading. Some because of the passion of the hobby. For the same reason you want to venture down this trail, I believe will be the cause of a less than fully successful endeavor.
