Reloaded ammunition can be more accurate than factory loads but not for the reasons stated in this video. Factory loaded ammo is made to very close tolerances... it's not as sloppy as the narrator makes it sound. The increased accuracy comes from your ability to finely tune the reloads to your individual weapon by varying the bullet type, the powder charge etc. Each chamber and barrel perform differently and by experimentation with different loads you can fine the one that performs most accurately in your individual weapon.

can you reload riffel and hand gun ammo with the same press using different dies for each round

how expensive is the complete set up of tool to start reloading

I just bought a Lee reloading kit and dies for 223. This vidio actually was a great starting tool and explained it simple and understandible. Great job, thanks

Thanks very simple and understandable. Great communication!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
