reloading is the only way to cut costs. I save about half on my 40 cal ammo that way. The only problem is that you only save money reloading if you continue shooting at your current rate. Otherwise, you shoot more and equal out the cost.
If you're interested in reloading as a hobby and means to shoot more, there are plenty of good folk in the Ammo Bunker on this site, and on The High Road's (www.thehighroad.org) reloading forum.
