Well, Southern, it WILL eat up all of your available time . . . to the extent that you have sufficient income and available supplies to indulge in reloading. I’ve heard people complain about availability of brass, and I’ve had serious problems accessing my preferred propellants. It’s better (financially) than buying factory ammo, but these days it ain’t no picnic. Five or six years ago, I could reload on a long weekend, and have ammunition for a month on the range. Nowadays, I spend a “range day” of money and get, at most, two range days of ammo.
First world problems, eh? At least I can GET supplies/ammo.
Sounds like y’all are having some . . . INTERESTING times down in Oz. Hope it works out.
