So this young man I know just got interested in shooting, handguns in particular. His grandmother has taken him shooting with a .38 revolver, 4" barrel. That's the handgun he wants to shoot more often, and his mom and grandma are OK with that, but they're not going to keep buying the ammo at $27 for 50 rounds of cheap range ammo. This family has shot up $100 worth of factory / re manufactured .38 ammo in the last 2 months. So... What do y'all think about the 18 year old reloading, with a single caliber reloading kit, making one round at a time? Cost of Lee loading kit: $40, Cost of 1lb powder (enough for 2500 rounds, at under 3gr. per charge), $20, Cost of 500 cast lead bullets -- $40 (8 cents each) Cost of 500 small pistol primers-- $20. I can give the kid a bunch of fired cases to get started. I figure the kid can build ammo for about 13 cents a shot, plus shipping, and amortization on the loading kit (figure he'll use it for 2000 rounds, or 2 cents per shot). Is this a viable plan to get a young man shooting a .38 for not much cost?
