hand load value question
« on: April 14, 2023, 11:59:51 PM »
Recently stumbled into quite a bit of ammo for calibers that I don't own. Looking to sell / trade them. The rounds all look great but I'm wondering if theres a market for them. If so how do they stack up vs factory loads? Heres an example:

The only thing mystery reloads stack are bodies. Shooting unknown reloads is dangerous.

If all the components used are listed or known, 'maybe'. With just the data shown in the pic, no.

Hereís an example of my thought process from the photo.  Just in a seconds glance I see there are at least three different cases in that box.   When I work on a load itís always the same case, primer, powder etc.   If thatís not important to the person loading it, then what else ďisnít importantĒ.  Not being a loading snob, just trying to explain mindset.

 :yeah:

I donít think you can legally sell reloaded ammo except as components.

The liability of selling reloads is very high!  If the gun blows up because of a double charge you are responsible.  If they are not one you reloaded the dollar value goes way up, as far as your cost in a lawsuit.  Best thing to do is to break them down.  Not worth the hassle or headache.

I agree, but there is some value there.  A guy could pull the bullets, dump the powder and then put new powder in and seat.  Lots of work, but with the price of components it would probably be worth it for some people.  It would be easy to weigh the bullet and get data.  The only variable would be the primer, but I don't think that is a safety concern.

Hypothetically people trust the ammunition they purchase from a store and think nothing of using it. I am leery of shooting other people's ammo. But if I know the person who rolled them, I don't think I'd have an issue. Some folks are a lot more focused on what they build. So, the quality might be better than the store bought.
