    I need help loading some 50 GI ammo. I will pay someone to load them for me. I live in South Florida. I can ship the components.

    Paying for the components for 50 gi may be cheaper to just buy factory after the shipping, hazmat and whatnot. Also the legality/liability insurance and all

    The cheapest 50 GI is $45 for a box of 20. I believe hand loading will be cheaper.

    Look at component cost powder and primers are both requiring hazmat to ship either to you or to the reloaded. Not to mention the cost of finding someone licensed and insured to do so for payment. Then paying shipping costs of the ammo from them to you. At the end of the day that ammo is likely gonna be cheaper.

    Or check to see if there is local forum/groups nearer to you since most of the members are from the Panhandle Alabama or Georgia. Also nra puts on reloading classes which is a great resource to learn the basics.

    Sadly 45 for 20 rounds of a boutique cartridge really ain't that bad.

    Yeah, unless they're a licensed ammo manufacturer, I wouldn't trust anyone else to load my rounds. 50 GI isn't overly common, so unless you found someone with a similar gun in that caliber, they'd likely not load a quality round anyway, just go middle of the road or on the lower end to be safe. Downside of having obscure calibers, unless you reload yourself, you're at the mercy of the people who make said ammo.
    I've been reloading for about 30 years and I don't load rounds for anyone but my closest friends and only if it's a caliber I shoot out of my personal guns. Even then, I am anal as hell in loading it I know someone else is going to be firing those rounds (not that I slack off on personal loads, but zero experimentation on loads for others)
