Saving a bit of money is a part of it, but I also like the ability to tinker with loads to make them more appropriate for the firearm, even though they are all 357 mag. For example, I load 125s and 158s with Universal Clays for my 2, 4 & 6 inch revolvers, but I load 160 gr cast and 180 grn jacketed for the 1894C to get higher velocity. One can also load one cartridge which will work satisfactorily in all of these based on preferences (muzzle flash, recoil, velocity, accuracy, powder economy, wear on the brass, wear on the guns, etc). When you buy factory ammo, you only get their choice and amount of powder.
