Description

For those shooters who want to reload for accuracy making the decision is as simple as talking to any serious match competitor. Ammo off the shelves is made to produce acceptable accuracy for a variety of firearms, even match grade factory ammunition. Think of it as a suit off a rack, fits most people well, and a designer suit looks exceptionally well, but put that suit up against a tailor made suit made specifically for you, and there’s absolutely no comparison.

By having the options of different powders, bullet weight, seating depth and charge weight, a custom round built specifically for your firearm can be made, producing accuracy you can’t get “off the shelf”. And if you’re planning on competing, it’s a necessity. An average match grade .308 Winchester bullet can be made for around 45 cents. When compared to top match grade ammunition at a price of $1.50 , a shooter who shoots just 1 box of ammunition a week can expect to save around $1050 the first year. A handgun shooter who shoots just 2 boxes of .45acp a week can expect to save around $1350. That’s enough for this course and the best reloading equipment money can buy, TWICE.
