I have a Shooting area for Pistol Target shooting (plinking) at my homestead. I have set up 2”-12” ar500 steel targets as well as paper targets . On average I will fire 200-400 rds 2-3 times a week when I am between jobs (traveling Pipe Fitter/Welder) . When on the road I find a firing range but usually slack off and go a couple times a week at most. But still anything under 200rds feels depressing! I also rarely shoot my pistols that I’m not going to be carrying . With the amount of ammunition that I use , would making my own ammunition be worth while? Or would I be better off buying 1000rds for $250 twice a month. (.40S&W is my cartridge of choice for self defense) . The XD-S .40 has been my EDC for a little over a year now . Thanks for your input guys !!!
