Personally, I've never had issues with pulled bullets. Maybe they wouldn't be my choice for benchrest use, but I never achieve those levels of marksmanship anyways. I've gotten decent results even with less than perfect cast bullets (minor cold flow flaws, etc.); they all tend to outshoot me.

 I don't mind shooting pulls.  I don't like the claim of less then 5% when I find 11% after weighing each bullet.

The latest bullets have no pull marks, just really heavy crimp marks.  I'll probably load these bullets to their crimp marks.

Reloading becomes economical once you get beyond 223/5.56 - That's where it hits it's real stride.

45acp/9mm you have to produce and purchase significant volume to achieve a better price per bullet than what you can purchase.

But 5.56 - We were saving 10-15c/rd and on 7.62 it jumped significantly, we were reloading to spec M118LR's for about 65c/per - Going rate is $1.25.

Mk248 Mod 1's (300WM) sell from Black Hills for $5.00/RD; we got it down to $1.75.

Basically, the larger the caliber, the more it economically makes sense to reload.

That makes sense.

I am trying to be religious about collecting and keeping my .300 BLK casings.  I figure that might be a good place to start.  Decent BLK is expensive, and economical stuff (S&B) is nasty.
