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.

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...

Started for cost reduction on 40S&W during high ammo prices, equipment paid off on first month of shooting with buddies (3 of us with 40SW).  Moved to rifles also and load for ammo quality and accuracy now.
