Just explain to her all the money you'll save, loading your own ammo...

Tell her you got it on sale. I've been told that getting something on sale makes it OK because of all the money that was saved.

Welcome to the forum. I am relatively new to reloading as well and there is a ton of information on here to help you out. If you can't find the answer, ask the question. Somebody will definitely have a good answer for you.

I keep putting off getting a 650 due to lack of $$. This might make me go ahead and take the plunge.

It is a lifetime machine. (or longer)

You will get decades of service out of it.

Given that...it's not even $50 a year, really. Plus, it should cut your ammo cost (per thousand) in half.

It's just good math.

Exactly... You didn't spend any, you're saving!

Great investment. The cost of buying a gun is one thing. But the cost of all the ammo you'll shoot thru it over the life of the gun is probably much higher...

Good math. For all of you that said you'd never use this stuff back in math class. :devil:

Thanks guys,... I feel better already. I remember the first white lie I ever told my wife when I bought my first AR 15 ( I own 7 now in 5.56, 300 blk, 6.8 spc and an AR-10 ). WIFE... "how much was it? ME..."a few hundred" WIFE... "that doesn't look like something that only cost a few hundred,... HOW MANY HUNDRED WAS IT REALLY?!?!" ME... Uuhhh, ten hundred?!?! TOTAL SILENCE... and she quit washing my laundry...! That was 10 years ago, now she acts like she doesn't see what I buy, and I act like I don't see what she brings home from the Mall. AND THE WORLD IS AT PEACE...

Tell her you got it so when she's reloading for you, she wont have to work as hard and besides, pulling the handle with firm up her hooters. You were just thinking of her. :)
