Hello
I will probably start reloading for myself. I kind of like doing things that require attention to detail. So an internal mental question is rattling around in my brain, can I make a little side money doing this? I realize I’m not going to get rich or anything but could a guy do as well as say minimum wage? Does anyone else sell reloads on a small scale? Is it even feasible? I might be willing to invest in say a Dillon 1050 if I could actually make a little spare change. If the business side of it doesn’t work I will probably just go with the Dillon RL550B.
Side note does anyone know if the Dillon RL550B will reload rifle rounds?
Thanks for the input!

The problem is the liability involved. If someone's gun blows up using your reloads, can you cover the replacement of the gun? Can you handle the medical bills if there is an injury? Can you handle the cost of a lawsuit?
Can you handle the legal bills just to prove IT WASN'T THE FAULT OF YOUR RELOAD? All of us would like to make a little side money, and I imagine all of us who reload have given some thought to this, but one would have to sell a pretty significant amount to make it worthwhile from the legal viewpoint, even if you could find insurance coverage (which wouldn't be cheap, either). Also, selling for profit would involve business licenses, meeting codes for powder storage, etc. Just doesn't seem worthwhile to me. YMMV, of course.

What Snake-eater said plus, you have to have a manufacturer's FFL. I did this years ago and it's not worth the hassles for a part-time endeavor. I'm not sure it's even a good full time pursuit.

I live in memphis and the three different ranages all give me the same ammo when i got there.

It is reloaded ammo in this Oragne box. I suspect that they are making a profit, and have some how manged to get all of the ranges to sell their stuff.

In short they seem to make money seeling reloads, but they seem to sell a lot.
