For that $135 you can get a Lee Anniversary reloading kit and dies, all you need then is a good manual, powder, bullets, primers, and your already fired brass and for under $200 you can be reloading your own ammunition and saving more than 60%.

Its not like it takes hours on end to reload, you can work on it for a few minutes at a time or for an hour. Soon you'll realize its a relaxing, rewarding hobby that you enjoy doing.

I've got two thoughts for ya:

1. If you're really "too lazy" to reload, you're missing a great way to enjoy the shooting sports when it's raining out or the wind is gusting to 40MPH, making a trip to the range out of the question. It's pretty easy, very relaxing, and will save you tons of money and/or let you shoot a lot more, w/o spending more. Over a lifetime of shooting, it is a great hobby that will probably make you a better shot with your rifle.

2. Why are you shooting that many rounds through your 300 Win Mag? After working up a good handload for a centerfire rifle, I probably wouldn't shoot 100 rounds through it in a 3 year period. When I want to shoot a lot of rounds, I get one of my .22 LR's out and shoot for quarter-sized groups at 50 yards, all day long. Saves my shoulder, wear and tear on a my hunting rifle's barrel, and challenges my shooting skills just as much as the big stuff. Oh, and costs less than a quarter per shot, versus the $1.50 a round the centerfire cartridges go for.

Give reloading a try, or at least pick yourself up a decent 22 and use that for extended sessions at the range.
