Is it pretty spendy to get into processing and reloading? I have no idea what equipment goes into that or even what's involved but it looks like it'd be pretty interesting.
Reloading can be expensive if you want high-end everything. I easily spent over $1000 on my reloading gear, but I bought a nice progressive press (which means it does 5 things at once), digital scale and Japanese digital caliper, high end dies, *two* tumblers (and tried all sorts of tumbling media and polishing compounds before settling on what I use now). And on top of all that, rifle case prep has many extra steps (that I've noted above), so I bought powered case prep tools rather then inexpensive manual tools to help speed up my processing. Plus there's the books, and all the components you have to buy as well. Search for Reloading here in the forums, we've had a few threads on it.
If I got my shit together and don't get distracted, I could churn out 500 pistol rounds an hour, though I go a bit slower then that so I don't make mistakes.
If I got basic reloading gear: Single Stage press, balance (non-digital) scale, basic dies, books, etc. It would cost $350-$400 and you'd be making 80-120 rounds an hour...plus, many would say doing everything slower and manually will provide you with better consistency which brings better accuracy. Most rifle shooters who are all about accuracy, will *only* reload on single stage presses, slowly and accurately.
I'm building a new (and more solid) reloading bench for my bullet press this week. Once I'm done, I'd be happy to have you over to see how it all works. I've had several people come over for the low-down over the past year I've been in this house.
