What type of reloading do you do?

Or perhaps why do you reload?

I started out reloading to tailor my load to the sport, USPSA.

Now I do it because I find it fascinating, all the different things that impact the ballistics.

I reload for 3 of the 4 reasons listed in the poll, plus a fourth reason: itís fun and I enjoy it.

I started reloading .38s after I started shooting SASS matches and it snowballed from there.
I especially like being able to load up 9mm LRNs to shoot steel on the club range.
MP5+freedom mags+steel targets=FUN

I started reloading during the great ammo shortage. All the equipment and components paid themselves off within a year.

I used to hand load for SASS, super-light 38s. I have plans to start loading for everything but finances currently are inhibiting progress.

I don't get to shoot much anymore, but when I do, I like to shoot 6.5G and 10mm.  So, you know...
