Shooters tend to be enthusiastic about what they do. Enthusiasts tend to want complete control over their activities. The natural conclusion is that shooters want complete control over their shooting experiences- from plinking to hunting, to competition shooting.
Reloading for your weapon affords you more complete control over your shooting experiences. If you want the most accurate load, you can dial that load in for your weapon. If you want a custom hunting load, you can dial that in for your weapon. If you want to shoot 44 special loads in your 44 magnum without the “crud ring” buildup in the chamber throats you can do that.
The point is- when you have a great shooting session and you’ve accomplished your goals in part because of your reloading process – there’s quite a bit of satisfaction in that!
Here’s a shot from an up-coming video showing my S&W Model 629. I love loading for this gun- and shooting it.
