Ammo

Does anyone know somewhere that reloads brass for a decent price?
I'm tired of paying an arm and a leg for ammo.

Why not do your own.
I have been reloading my own for 20 years, and do it for 2 friends of mine as well....yes I do charge them for supplies.
But its quick and easy to do, so find it relaxing, so its not a big deal to do it for them at cost.
Which is WAY less than buying factory loads, and also a lot more consistent when shooting I find..

the problem is all the decent reloader kits I have found cost like $2000 and I don't have that kind of money right now.

wow, where are you looking.
Specifically what caliber(s) are you wanting to load?
The press that bolts to your bench is just a couple hundred bucks, some simple tools like a bore measurer at $3 and the powder measurer is about $20, then some brass, buy it used if new is too pricey, primers, powder, and bullets.
For 2000 dollars you can make several thousand rounds, depending on caliber.
My most expensive load is my 300 magnum hunting rifle,and my cost to reload is about 18% of buying ammo. And IMO its better quality to.

2k is most likely a high end progressive press. I have loaded thousands of rounds for a few different guns on a simple Lee single stage press I bought in a kit for about $100. Over the year I have added all the bells and whistles, tumblers, scales, etc, etc and a few progressive presses as well but they arent needed to get started. What caliber are you looking for? I have an old Star press my uncle left me that I dont use, I think its set up for .38 but he should have the dies for 9mm and .45 too since I have found a lot of reloading stuff for those 3 calibers in his boxes of stuff. I could dig it out and make sure its all there and sell it for a decent price if you are interested. He also had a lot of .308 loaded up so I believe it reloads rifle too.

I am also going to buy a .40 sometime soon so I will also want to be able to reload those.
