There is a LOT of superb factory ammo out there so reloading shouldn't drive this acquisition. I have some Fusion loads from Hornady in 7mm-08 and .30-06 as well as some commercial remanufactured ammo from Bitterroot Valley and don't think there would ever be a need to reload with those. If he's not a frequent hunter then setting up to reload isn't needed.

I would rather decide on the right rifle and the right caliber instead of just any rifle in a caliber that I happen to already reload.
