I'd be more worried about finding all the components. Primers used to be 1000/$12, powder was 1lb/$15, brass was fairly cheap. If you can find all the items, figure out how much to reload 1000 rounds. Save all your brass you are shooting now. Also figure out spending a lot of time doing (and learning) this. Sometimes you can find someone with a press and give him your brass and get reloads a lot cheaper than buying off the shelf.
This for sure. It is an investment in time and you have to have the time as the learning curve dictates. IF you want to blast away, it means hours of reloading even with a Progressive press. For those of us that loaded em one at a time for accuracy and hunting, it just made sense. Many of my friends moved on to cast bullets and low pressure loads, I did not follow. I started at a time when all premium bullets had to be reloaded. All the manufacturers had was standard bullets. After years of using everything I could, I ended up just using Rem. Core-Lokt. Can't justify spending .50 per bullet to shoot a deer that does not know the difference.
It is a wonderful hobby and will educate you about ballistics and much more, but saving money is probably not a good reason to do it. More shooting equals more money, more time reloading, and time is money.
