    I shoot almost all reloaded rifle shells. I don't load pistol or shotgun shells. I probably have not shot over 25 factory rifle shells in the last 25 years. I get tremendous enjoyment from loading my own rifle shells.

    I use store bought Winchest Ballistic Tip bullets because I don't have a press or anything for rifle bullets or shotgun shells.

    Hand loads for most of the reasons above.

    I do all my rifle loads because I get better loads. I don't do loads for my handguns because I don't have a progressive press.

    BTW I trusted my handloads in AK for bears and everything else and they never failed me. I do always cycle them through the gun before hunting and use new or once fired brass.

    I roll my own for all rifle and handgun hunting. They are taylored to the gun and for the game being hunted. Mostly use factory in the shotguns "cause can;t make fancy turkey and waterfowl loads at home.

    Really depends on how much you shoot and kind of shooting?

    I've used both and I get a little better consistant accuracy with my hand loads from my rifle but since I don't shoot nearly as much as I used to I started just shooting store bought in rifle, hand gun and shotgun. As long as I'm putting three round in side two inces at 100 yards I'm happy with my rifle. I do more bow hunting than rifle hunting any more.

    for hunting I use store bought I have handloaded a lot of pistol and shotgun but I am just not comfortable on my rifle loads to humanely put down big game. My uncle does 95% of his. I just don't have the cofidence when nosler loads the same bullets that I would load. A Barnes TSX or Nosler ballistic tips.

    We just buy probably 25 or so shots and when we use them, we restock them with our supply of shot. Of course it took a while to stock up on that lead shot.
